Love, you most likely get turned out normals, you need to select all polygons and in Editablr Poly mode, click on these Flip polygons. Stas, you do not have to get attached to a corner in this situation, you have to do the binding on the tops.

Gus_ann hello.Thank you for your lesson. Please tell me, for the optimal settings - what values ​​to use - the new vray. In which case do I use Progressive, and in what case is Bucket and with which parameters (values)? Is there any information on the renderstuff where I can read about Progressive and / or Bucket in detail?

Pavel,   As I've noted, the CPUs under each category are ranged from most rational to the less rational ones. Having i7-7700K at the bottom of the Rendering Node category, you should consider it as the least rational choise for rendering purposes camparing to the top ones.   Thus, for the rendering purposes, Ryzen 1700 is better than 7700K.

Dear 3Ds Max users, I ask for your help!

Good day to all! Who got the 3ds Max 2017/2018 without the plug-in installed V-Ray is dedicated ... If someone created the project in previous versions of Max with the plug-in installed and the V-Ray render settings applied, then pushing this project (scene) into the new Max without this plugin, Will receive such a message (Error Missing Dlls ... etc) and that later in the Material Editor in the window displaying the entire list of materials will see solid black windows. Even if you immediately create a new project, then the material editor will already be black. You can fix this only after restarting Mach for a new project with new default settings. The fact is that the project created in the previous version of Mach with the V-Ray plug-in prescribes its data, which in the new Mac without this plug-in will not be able to clean the project. It is solved in only one way. Put the version of Max in which the project was created and put the plug-in V-Ray to it. Run it in your project, call%... Sorry, but the rest

Hi, Anton, Maks! I have a question, how to clean your computer from dust and dirt. Well, as a matter of fact, you know my past efforts in the selection of the best PC, and the moment of its cleaning has come. PC begun to do the buzzing noise, so I've cleaned the grill where the air comes in. It doesn't buzz anymore, but I'm obsessed with cleaning... I open the case, and there ......... disaster ... Everything is covered with the dust or its consequences. I rubbed it with a super rag .... a little wet, and only there where I could reach. But they say that you can not do this. You can not wipe, with wet, you are not allowed to do anything there. I carried my previous PC to the computer service, they kind of cleaned, there was also a blue screen bug. Well, they did everything, cleaned everything, but the count of the native screws had lessen... That is not a most pleasent thing. Maybe if there is no vacuum cleaner with reverse blowing I should not even try? Can a hairdryer d

5 May, 2017 # Re: Choosing PC for 3ds Max and CG, 2017
Hi Ilya, As for the info from the Internet, the "easy" overclocking of i7-7700K would get you around 10% boost. The choosen Asus Z170-P is approximately as higher in price, as the easy overclocking potential of this PC. The same coolers that are capable of keeping the noise low with the 95W CPU with full TurboBoost, would probably withstand the overclocking by going into noisier mode. I think, they are $40-$50 models like Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, Thermaltake Riing Silent, be quiet! Shadow Rock 2. Not sure if you can really save any money here having the overclocking intent.

Let's define the rating of best CPUs for 3d rendering for today.   Please feel free to use this topic for discussion any questions regarding Embree support.

The problem is in the riddle of the render and in its fuzziness, in principle, so that the rendering is not too much delayed. I will be glad to any constructive criticism about my renders

25 Apr, 2017 # Re: Bronze material for Bell
I can assume that your bronze material has overly perfect look. Usually bronzeware is handmade, so realistic bell 3d model must have many imperfections such as dents from a hammer or green signs of oxidation. That means you need to add appropriate bump map and create oxidation zones on diffuse.

Good afternoon, there is such a problem with viewports - I deploy the viewport on the whole screen and it seems to be inactive, although it is selected, the zoom with the mouse wheel does not work, for example. You have to move the scene or click on the lcm window, then the wheel zooming starts to work. What could be the problem?

20 Apr, 2017 # Re: LED strip in V-Ray
Hi Irina,   Since I’m not aware of what you have actually built with VRayLight, I can’t comment on why some of lights work and some don’t. I will just explain most practical options.   Easiest option starts from creating a small Sphere primitive. Apply VrayLightMtl on it and clone self-illuminated spheres wherever you want. To achieve better results, I advise you to activate Direct Illumination checkbox in material settings. It allows VrayLightMtl to not only shine bright and generate GI, it also make it generate direct light, as it is with VRayLight you used.   The more complicate and more realistic option is the imitating actual LED strip geometry. To do this, create a strip from long flat Box primitive, add few cross segments to it. Then convert Box primitive to Editable Poly and select every other polygon along one of the long flat sides. Extrude them and you will get LED’s on your stip. Assign material ID1 for the i

19 Apr, 2017 # Re: HugeΒ 4K TV for 3ds Max is a good choice!
Nikitakit, congratulations with such a great bargain!  As I understand, BDM4350UC is being sold as a monitor (not a TV) for a regular price around 800 USD and higher. The DisplayPort that available in this panel is a monitor-only feature, and it came handy as we can see. I personally use the onboard graphics ports on my MSI motherboard and can confirm some strange issues with them. Please feel free to share any info regarding the work on a large display, and other subjects of course.

24 Jan, 2017 # Re: Creating laquered timber material in V-Ray
With the clarity of the texture on the renderer, it's not so simple. The fact is that the renderer does not basically render the texture "pixel-to-pixel", by and large, it generally does not have such a thing as a pixel texture. Render - this is the tracing (emission) of rays to objects of the scene, falling into the camera and the formation of color pixels of the final rendering, depending on what "see" the rays at the point of impact.
