Poser to 3dsMax

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 1516

Transferring Poser figures into 3dsMax is not a difficult task but many have struggled with little tweaks such as DAZ Victorias eyeballs or opacity maps. The approach explained here is not the only way to accomplish the task but it will get you started and allow you to apply your own improvements to the process. It is targetting beginner to intermediate level users and assumes basic knowledge of both Poser and 3dsMax - object manipulation and navigation are not covered for either application. Import of animations is not part of this document.

WorldBuilder-3DS Max communication tutorial

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 509

The Max communicator of WorldBuilder is a great way to integrate the best of the 2 software packages in 1 render.The main advantage of this is that we can use the flexible material editor of Max in combination withthe landscape capabilities of WorldBuilder. There is of course the possibility of importing 3DS models in WorldBuilder, but that means we have to convert every single part of the imported Max materials to WorldBuilder materials and adjusting the phong photometry of every part separatly.This can be done with simple models, but for more complex models the Max communicator is the bestsolution.I made a greenhouse model in Max for this scene which we will use to make the following setting:- A camera will be inside the greenhouse and have a view of the plants inside and the landscape outside. - We will use small landscapes for the flowerbeds in the greenhouse.- We will create shadows and reflections of both WorldBuilder and Max objects in the scene.
