Morné Studio » Render 3D Objects as 2D Billboards – Simple Version. Tutorial Intro There may come a time when you would like to render some 3D objects as 2D billboards.
The most common objects for this are probably people, but it can be any 3D object. Maybe there’s a buidling that you want to fade out in your animation because it is distracting from your main focus of a new mall, office building or whatever. For this tutorial I will be using some Populate 3D people, but you can use any type of 3D people or other 3D objects. In this scene I just have a VRaySun, VRaySky, VRayCamera, plane and some 3D Populate People. Step 1 To give the 3D objects an outline, we need to add VRayToon into the Environment and Effects under Atmosphere > Effects. Step 2 The outlines look ok, but it’s now also on the plane and also in and around people’s fingers, ears etc. You may find nothing happens when you click on Add. Step 3 Make a new material and apply it to the objects you selected in the include list for VRayToon. Step 4 Step 5 Just for fun Final Notes Happy Experimenting!

If you are using the mental ray rendering engine, you can take advantage of a great feature of 3DS Max Design (as well as 3DS Max) called distributed bucket rendering. Distributed bucket rendering can be used for speeding up the rendering of single images. If you render a large number of high-resolution still images, you will get much faster results with distributed bucket rendering. This type of rendering uses the processors from other machines on your network to speed up the rendering time on your machine. HDRI Setup Part 1.

Linear Workflow: a guide. This has been the subject of discussions on many forums over recent years.
I realised that there were all sorts of tutorials offering often conflicting information regarding the process. This is not the only way, just my way. I would like to thank my mate Ben Cowell and Phil Shoebottom for offering some clarity on a few points. SO, WHAT IS LINEAR WORKFLOW? (explained without maths, graphs and tables) Look at the above image, what is the difference between the image on the left and the image on the right? Vray and 3ds Max process the data in which to make an image in ‘linear space’, also known as Gamma 1.0, but by default all monitors show you the image with a Gamma of 2.2 (sRGB), which basically makes the image ‘look’ dark, although it actually isn’t dark at all. As well as the image itself, textures and materials also need to be correctly converted to Gamma 2.2.
Rendering Algorithms Rollout (mental ray Renderer) Rendering menu > Render > Render Scene dialog > Renderer panel > Rendering Algorithms rollout Main toolbar > Render Scene > Render Scene dialog > Renderer panel > Rendering Algorithms rollout Note: The Renderer panel appears only when the mental ray renderer is the currently active renderer.
The controls in this rollout let you choose whether to render using ray-tracing, scanline rendering, or both. You can also choose the method used to accelerate ray-tracing. The controls labeled Trace Depth limit the number of times each ray can be reflected, refracted, or both. By default, both Ray Trace and Scanline are enabled, which lets the mental ray renderer use a combination of ray tracing and scanline rendering to render the scene. You can disable one or the other option, but not both. Enable—When on, the renderer can use scanline rendering. Use Fast Rasterizer (Rapid Motion Blur)—When on, uses a fast rasterizer method to generate the first generation of rays to trace. RenderFarm. C o m: Efficient Interior Lighting with mental ray. Many folks have asked me to do an in-depth interior lighting tutorial.
The question you’re probably really asking is "how do you light an interior scene that renders quickly? " To achieve this, it is more art than science. To get quick render results you have to take shortcuts and cheat a little to get those fast results. I’ll show you how I set up lighting for my interior scenes. I’m assuming that the scene has already been textured. Here is an outline of how I setup my lighting in my scenes, and I broke it up into 8 steps: 1. 1. This one is fairly straight forward. 2. Setting my exposure to the preset default of interior daylight gives me a good benchmark to know what to tweak my lighting against. 3.Turn OFF Final Gather This is done due to the technique in using the combination of FG with GI. 4.Turn ON Global Illumination This is really the first step in tweaking the lighting.
The default setting is actually pretty good, and works for most scenarios. 3ds Max Mental ray Hdr Tutorial.
