Applying and Optimizing Reflections

Many materials in the real world reflect, and the reflections add depth and richness to the scene. However, in 3ds max 7 reflections can be expensive in terms of computer resources, so you must do all you can to optimize the math involved.

In the next exercise, you'll learn to apply a Reflection map called a Raytrace and optimize two settings in 3ds max 7 that will speed rendering and make the reflections look more convincing.
