Chapter 20. Advanced Rendering > Taking Your Exercises Farther

Taking Your Exercises Farther

  • Light Tracer: Try using the city.max scene (from the previous chapter) to work on getting the feel for outdoor lighting. If you added a Volume Fog, all the better; you can make one scene sunny and another completely overcast. Bonus points to animate between the two!

  • Ink 'n Paint: Try a toon-shaded version of the city.max scene. You'll have to adjust the line weights, based on the distance from the camera, to avoid the line “clogging up” the painted areas.

  • mental ray: Another area where mental ray is superior to the scanline renderer is in reflective/refractive caustics, such as light interacting with water. An excellent tutorial based on a swimming pool has been included with 3ds max 7, which will help you to understand how to use this effect.
