  4. https://youtu.be/0vUUOn3BdBI Hi Everyone ??? In this second part series, I will be showing you how to quickly create proxies of nearly one gigabytes file, with a click of button, using amazing Q-Proxies presets. Q-Proxies is a 3ds max plug-in compatible with any rendering engine. Like most proxies, it reduces the polygon count in a scene, and helps to speed up renders substantially. Download Files: https://jamiecardoso-mentalray.blogspot.com/2020/08/q-proxies-with-3ds-max-part-2.html What sets this proxy plug-in apart from others, is the unique ability to bring back the original mesh with textures and modifiers previously applied, from any rendering engine . Not to mention other great features such as, Relink proxies to current folder, remove unused files and much more. I really hope you find the tutorial useful, like and share it.

  9. Hello all you beautiful people, I just started my journey in archviz. I tried to look up many sources to rendering an animation using the Vray GPU Next, but hardly was able to find any tutorials with the best render settings. I made an interior scene and tried to render an animation and 3dsmax crashes every time after calculating the light cache, I wanted to look up on how the professionals do it. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  10. We just released the final video of our 4 part interior modelling series where you will learn how to model a vintage, rustic looking interior scene from scratch. We provided all the ModelDezign 3D models used in the scene free to download for everyone to follow along including the egg chair, radiator, table, light and more. We also showed how to model a few objects like the skirting board, floorboard, door, etc. We would love to hear some feedback to know if you enjoyed the series and what you would like to see next. You can watch our entire series from start to finish here: You can access the free 3D models used in this series here: https://www.modeldezign.com/product-category/3d-model-library/ Thanks for reading, Erizon from ModelDezign

  12. Hi mates! I have been doing rendering for almost a decade and recently I come up with the idea of preparing video tutorials on Thea4Su (Thea render plugin for Sketchup) and you know there is no carefully set, step-by-step yet informative enough for wide range of users from noob to pro courses or information out there in the market. Also I've tried to go after a photographic approach. I've tried to think loudly while working, so the audience will be familiar with the rendering mindset. It covers: Composition, Camera, Light, Material, engine setup and postproduction tools embedded in Thea render pluginand finally puts all together in several "in-action" projects. I will release it hopefully late January and one/some free lessons also would be available. Here is the render right from the lectures:

  16. SiNi ToolTip #01 Clean up bloated 3ds Max files with Forensic. In the tooltip, Si discusses how to fix bloated 3ds Max scenes. A scene may become bloated if it contains Note Tracks and Motion Clips. To remove them use the latest update to Forensic. This will dramatically reduce the scene size. Thanks to Recent Spaces for contacting us with the problematic 3ds Max file.
  17. SiNi ToolTip #03 - Cleanup BIM models imported into 3ds Max scenes using SiNi Software plugins Sculpt and Forensic for Autodesk 3ds Max. In this Tooltip, Simon (Si) discusses how to fix BIM models in Autodesk 3ds Max scenes using Sculpt & Forensic. (Forensic versions - free and IgNite)

  19. We would like to test a new thing at our office, and would like to give the task of tiling textures to someone who never did it before, barely did any 3d work so far. We scan our materials, so the textures are all looking good, but we need to do the tiling and we would like to see how hard it is for someone who never had a task like that before. Do you know any good video/tutorial that we could use for that purpose, a tutorial for beginners. As mentioned we scan the materials, so no need to remove gradient or noise from the texture, to get rid of reflections, only getting rid of the seams (although a video with an explanation of not only getting rid of the seams are good as well). We only know old tutorials from 5-10 years ago, and would like to use some newer ones. I am going through youtube and google, but it would help if someone could point to a video and says "that's good, try that", if you have any video you liked or remember that are good, please share it in the comments below. What videos/tutorials you know of that you would recommend? Thanks!
