Best CPU for 3ds Max, May 2017

5 May, 2017 Maks (Staff Author)


Intel 7th Gen Pentium & Core vs AMD Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7. Choosing the best CPU for standalone workstation, rendering workstation, rendering node, and for general CG. Finally, we have enough tests results of the new great AMD Ryzen CPUs, that have set the new bar for consumer desktop performance. So, what is balance of powers in CPU 3d rendering and work world for now? Please note that the 3d rendering and work are just processor-intensive tasks, so the recommendations for CPU can also be useful for virtually any intensive use, whether it is computer grpahics or something other.

Huge 4K TV for 3ds Max is a good choice!

19 Dec, 2016 Anton (Staff Author)


Hi everyone,We want to share with you our experience in using the LED TV as a monitor for CG purposes. There is no doubt that many of us who plans or want to buy a new monitor think of this as an option. And not without reason. Really, what's the point to buy a professional monitor for $1,500 when you can buy pretty usual TV panel for a $500 and get actually the same (or very similar) matrix in just a bit different body design? Or difference not only in plastic body design???Over a month ago we also faced with this questions too and tried to find the answers. To clear, nowadays lot of information about TV as a monitor on many-many hardware forums and in video-reviews form but they all almost exclusively about TV as a monitor for computer gaming only. Not for graphics applications such as 3ds Max, Photoshop and so on. Besides, the majority of «conclusions» sounds like: There is no difference between, but the TV definitely not suitable for this just because…100500% truth!


Realistic Sofa Creation in 3ds Max, Marvelous Designer, V-Ray from scratch

21 Aug, 2016 gus_ann (3dsmax vray expert)


I am presenting to you the tutorial on 3d geometry modeling of the “Foliage” sofa created by famous Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola for the popular Italian furniture brand Kartell.     By designer’s idea, the style of sofa symbolizes a tree, where legs are the branches and the leaved canopy is the cushioned leaf-shaped fabric. The real sample of this sofa has been presented on the April exhibition Salone Internazionale del Mobile which took place 2011 in Milan. Its complex shape, the featured tufting, and the abundance of folds cut even the experienced modeler’s claws, say nothing about novices. At first, I couldn’t decide myself from which side to start the modeling from. However, if you look closely, everything is not so complex as it seems. This is what I plan to show you in this tutorial. Let me assure you that this sofa can be done by anyone who has basic skills of 3ds Max and Marvelous Designer.
