Lensflare in 3ds Max Tutorial coming soon

Hello..

In this tutorial we will create a simple lensflare in 3ds max with the help of light and effects..though its very basic technique but at the same time very powerful and useful. This can be rendered as a still frame of Full HD or bigger size with alpha channel. Then the rendered still can be imported into After effects to create an animated hot lensflare. I have used it in my products called Dream Sequence..

I WILL BE BACK!


Hello All,
Since Terminator 4 is all around us so I thought of doing something similar but not same..
This big gun is 5 minutes modelling in Max. but modelling is not our focus in this tut. Our focus will be learning Particle Flow in Max... Bullets being fired from this gun and they will chase the flying targets until they execute the targets with an explosion. The rest of the background is a quicky in After Effects. Our focus will be Particle flow in 3ds Max. Still working on it and also busy with some other stuff lets see when it will be live! fingers crossed :-)
Will upload the video of this soon...

Rendering with Skip Existing Frame coming soon



Dear All,
Get ready for another informative tutorial. Probably most of you know it but it is for those who don't.
In this tutorial we will explore the technique of safe rendering specially when your project is full HD and has all kinds of effects applied to it and after rendering you realise there is a change in the project...
Now either you render the whole project again or just render those frames which has been changed.
Thanks
