21 Feb, 2018 # How to set texture paths in 3ds Max?
Artem, There is an utility in a Material Editor called Instance Duplicate Map that searches duplicate similar maps and lets you instantiate them, i.e. make single from duplicates, virtually by one click. You should look into that.

21 Feb, 2018 # Re: Modeling complex objects in 3ds Max
Hi Yevgeniy, To create slab table 3d model, you may use the polygon modeling, where you start from some primitive and then manually manipulate vertices, edges, and polygons to achieve desired shape. Please provide a link to an image with the typical slab, so we can discuss its 3d modeling basing on particular example.

Hello. I just started to study 3d max and there was a problem. I model the panorama of the steppe - a huge space, from horizon to horizon, in places filled with grass. Actually the problem is - I create grass with hair and fur in a millimeter scale: Then with the help of Merge I load it into the scene where the meter scale and it turns out some nonsense: How to correct the distortion of hair and fur? The second problem with the multiscatter,

4 Jan, 2018 # Re: Best CPU for 3ds Max, May 2017
George, unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to check all the memory options on Ryzen personally, so I will not advise anything about overclocking. From a practical and realistic point of view, plain arithmetic shows that the choice of fast out-of-the-box memory will make the Ryzen 1600/16Gb base kit price higher by 6%. And the difference in CPU performance from the memory speed described by you lies in the range of 5-10%, what completely justifies the extra price for better memory. The funny thing is that the same fact justifies buying cheaper memory as well, because the quality-price ratio is the same.

Hi, Yeah sure. All that your need is to select an object and then click by the right mouse button on it, not losing the current selection. The context menu appears. In that menu, choose the Object Properties… option:   Then actually, the Object Properties menu appears. Uncheck there the Visible to Camera option:   Done. Now chosen object is invisible to camera in render, but still visible in refLec

Alexey, I hope the delidding will give you an advantage in TurboBoost and better overclocking, if you opt for that. I can confirm that out-of-the-box i7-4790K reaches peak temperatures very easily: I couldn't overclock mine even a tiny bit with monstrous Thermalright Macho cooler. While being the 3 years old CPU, Intel® Core™ i7-4790K still has high-end overall performance, and is in the Top 10 of the most powerful CPUs in single-thread performance by today.

I have used Razer Death Adder 2013 WoT 6400DPI mentioned here for about two years, and the middle button have failed today. It does nothing when I press wheel anymore, despite I hear distinct mechanical click sound. There is a rumour that you can disassemble the mouse and clean it - will leave this option for future. Got A4Tech Bloody R8 Wireless instead. If someone interested, I can share my opinion on its usage with 109ppi display setup.

By the way, here is the above dude with a mirror picture spread with a question. In short, who can benefit from it. For each object, in addition to the transparent material, you can manually register its effect on the alpha channel. right click on the object, then v-ray properties, and on the right there is an alpha contribution at the top - default = 1, can be reduced to 0

23 Aug, 2017 # Re: How to Render a Transparent Object on a Transparent Background
Hi Vitaly,   Sorry for BIIIIIIG delay. Hope you already found answer on to your question. Anyway, it is the widespread topic, so I’ll explain how to get glass render with transparency.   There are three common things you need to know: 1) There is no actual transparency in raster files. Transparency effect is achieved only thanks to additional b/w «alpha» mask. Even in «naturally» transparent formats, *.png for example, the alpha mask is implicitly built-in. Every time you open up a transparent image, the image viewer is forcibly applying build-in alpha mask on main image and you see it as the image with transparency as the result.   2) By default, the materials alpha generation is turned off in material settings, so to add material alpha information on general render alpha channel you need to turn it on in material settings. &n

8 Jul, 2017 # Re: Unwrap in 3ds Max: texturing complex models
Alexey, You shouldnt expect anything good from Flatten Mapping. It works just like this: spreads every flat face along a template, well, not taking care of the seams, the integrity, or the location of the neighboring pieces. For a good mapping, you will have to use a more efficient tool. In 3ds Max, this is the Pelt technique of the Unwrap UVW modifier, or the old-school manual unwrapping by the means of selection of the desired general logical piece, the application of the planar projection onto it, sewing them to the desired place. Also, there are very good 100% automatic unwrappers in other software products.

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.
