12 Oct, 2017 # CPU for 3d rendering: FX-8350 vs FX-9370 vs i7-4790K vs i7-5820K
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.

10 Oct, 2017 # Re: Best Mouse for 3ds Max on 4K
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.

2 Oct, 2017 # Re: Best CPU for 3ds Max, May 2017
Kirill, CPUs have a lot of characteristics that affect their performance. The number of threads has the least impact on the production-rendering speed. Moreover, oddly enough, in many situations, this impact is negative because of the time it takes to join the results of separate calculations. Because of the insignificant difference, as a rule, this characteristic is neglected when choosing a render machine. To put it simply: It is not about the threads, when rendering.

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

Toliand, Speaking about AMD FX-8350 and its neigbours, generic rendering, and the need in single node, it is still good. Its price is constantly adopting to the market to be most attractive. But in any other situation, you may want to look on $200+ Ryzens.

20 Aug, 2017 # Re: Realistic Sofa Creation in 3ds Max, Marvelous Designer, V-Ray from scratch
Dasha hello. It's not quite clear what buttons you do not have and why, in your screenshot, not a single toolbar has been captured. I have only to guess the current state of affairs. As in any program, Marvelouse Designer has toolbars that you can show or hide. In order to display lines of stitching (in your post "folds "πŸ˜‰, you must turn on their display like this: In order for additional tools and buttons to appear, you also need to turn them on here (2d- is responsible for the nesting window, 3d for tools in the 3d view window) At the expense of defrosting - you've got it right. The lower frozen areas should now perform the role of avatar, keep on their sewn on canvas. And the upper ones must be defrosted and simulated with inflation.

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.

15 May, 2017 # Re: 3ds Max Missing Dlls
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
