Clay Render for Beginners

This tutorial will demonstrate a method used to create a clay render of any scene in 3ds Max.
When you’re just about finished a model in 3ds max, sometimes a quick clay rendering is needed. You might need an early prototype for the model. A clay rendering is very fast (especially compared to Mental Ray or V-Ray, which can take a very long time to render). To set a clay model for rendering, follow the steps below (depending on your version of 3ds max, things might look a bit different).

Creating an Italian Chess Set in Autodesk 3dsmax Part III
This is the third and last part of the "Creating an Italian Chess Set" tutorial with 3dsmax. Before starting to the render process I want to remind you a little clue about the size of your models. Always keep them near to the size of your Grid. It will help you for getting a realistic render. Because all the 3D Models are working on the real world size. After sharing this info we can go through to the render process

Fast Ambient Occlusion in 3ds Max
Ambient occlusion adds great realism to your renders, but can be bit cumbersome to set up in Max, particular if you’re using a mix of mental ray shaders and standard shaders. You could create an ambient occlusion effect by using lights, but it can be slow to render and tricky to get the right look. So if you want to skip all that, you can simply use a material override in your render options to get the job done – it’s super fast and gives you the added bonus of having the ambient occlusion in a separate pass. As a separate pass you can adjust and manipulate to your heart’s desire without affecting the rest of your render.
