In this tutorial you'll learn Pro tips from GarageFarm how to render faster in 3ds Max by optimizing your scene and geometry as well as reducing polygon count. Don't wait forever for the render to finish! Learn to reduce render time now.
CG tutorial about how to create and render interactive 360 degree panorama for architecture virtual tour in 3ds Max using V-ray or mental ray renderer. About why you shouldn't use the 3ds max panorama exporter and how to achieve the best quality panoramic map picture with panoramic 360 degree camera in 3d max. Of why you don't want to render panoramic cube map and how to get the QuickTime output or flash file with the panorama software. Everybody knows how important the visualization and its role is in presentation of the design to the end user with nice photorealistic images. But what if just the series of static images is not enough? What if the client wants a greater sense of presence and volume than the 2d bitmap images, while doing the animation is impractical because of the significant time and computational costs? The answer to this rhetorical and quite topical question is the pseudo three-dimensional representation of 2d images using 3d interactive panoramas technology. Such a presentation will let us see a three-dimensional picture of the visualization using the...
This week well be looking at how you can start off with an image and arrive at a mosaic tile effect when youre done. Its a powerful and simple technique that yields a better result than the ordinary cellular map method. This system is based on using the Photoshop Filter Stained Glass, so most of the effort takes place outside of 3ds Max. That makes it robust enough for both low-poly and high-poly work.Mr-Bluesummers on 6:45PM Wed, 08 July 2009
This week, were going to be looking at how what we learned last week applies to the Sub-Surface Scattering (SSS) Physical Material in 3dsMax and mental ray. Theyre very similar, but the physical material gives you a little more control over the final outcome. Since this is both a shader and a material type, what you learn here is applicable across many applications!Mr-Bluesummers on 6:43PM Wed, 08 July 2009
ve hammered out a 3-page Ink n Paint extravaganza! Ill walk you through the basics of the material as quickly as I can without leaving anyone behind. After that first page, we have a deep look at some of the more extreme things you can do with this material. Youll find that its handy for creating everything from basic cartoons to gritty surrealism to design-y product renders.Mr-Bluesummers on 9:09PM Wed, 17 June 2009
So weve all heard about anti-aliasing, but what is it really? In this tutorial Ill be giving you a background on what anti-aliasing and sub-sampling mean in 3dsMax so that you can jump into a production setting with some understanding right off the bat. Well start off by looking at anti-aliasing in the scanline renderer, followed by sub-samling in the scanline renderer, and then we'll look at both for mental ray.Mr-Bluesummers on 5:06PM Sun, 18 January 2009
Welcome to the second mental ray lighting tutorial. In this feature, Ill be walking you through a typical lighting project for a scene I built for one of my Monday Movies. Remember that this isnt the only way to illuminate a scene, and your render times could get pretty high. Well be using mental ray Sun & Sky to get the base lighting, followed by a few area lights to illuminate the hallway section of the render. Ill show you some common settings youll need to set up along the way, and by the time were done you should have a well lit scene!Mr-Bluesummers on 4:39PM Sun, 11 January 2009
For this tutorial, were going to explore mental ray by making a simple room and lighting setup. Ill be using 3dsMax 9 but you can follow along with any version. Im also including my finished file so you can pick it apart if it suits you.Mr-Bluesummers on 4:37PM Sun, 11 January 2009
I was thinking hard about the 3d Studio Max clay rendering tutorial I wrote a few days ago, and was pondering about what an extension might be. Then it struck me! Gosh, wouldnt it be cool to have a button in the 3dsMax interface that you could click, and have it automatically turn out a clean render while you go make a sandwich?The answer is of course!Mr-Bluesummers on 2:23PM Sun, 11 January 2009
I realize that there are about a million clay render tutorials out there, and thousands for 3d Studio Max. Unfortunately, many people are still hung up on how to do them as evidenced by the questions we get in the 3dTotal forums. To resolve this, Ive decided to write my own that outlines how to take a quick clay render in just 3 easy steps.Mr-Bluesummers on 2:21PM Sun, 11 January 2009
In this video tutorial of www.renderray.com, we will work on the Exterior Light setup, Render settings & HDRI, Environment Effects And Mental Ray Photographic Exposure Control setup to make a realistic and professional render. To download the sample scene go to www.renderray.com Renderray is an online cg community specialised in rendering, where you can download and view the professional 3D scenes, tutorials and templates of vray, mentalray, final render, etc...orkut on 1:21PM Fri, 11 July 2008
