Welcome! by reading this page i see you have made it this far and you are now ready to start RENDERING. First lets talk abit more about rendering. As we stated in our 3DS MAX posts rendering the process by which we send out images from 3DS max. 3DS 2013 come with its own build in renderers, namely: the scanline renderer, Mental Ray renderer and Iray renderer all of which are powerful renderers but i never took the time to learn these renderers because there is another render called Vray which i much more prefer and it has more tutorials from which you can learn. Vray is used in many commercials and movies an is fast becomming an industry standard. Vray is refered to as a plugin and so it is a software that needs to be installed and it attaches itself to 3DS max to basically function inside 3DS max. Vray is made for many different modelling softwares so when you want to test it go to the makers website CHAOSGROUP and sign up and download the version of vray relevant to 3ds max 2013 which is vray 2.40.02 Here is a video i put together to show you how you activate Vray after installation inside 3DS max and how to use it so to speak. Enjoy!
