Under the hood it will give lights that are closer and brighter most light samples.</p> <p><strong style="line-height: 1.5em;"><br /></strong></p> <p><strong style="line-height: 1.5em;">More quality?</strong></p> <p>With the default quality setting of 1.0 it will not be faster, you will get a better quality because of the improved light sample distribution.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><br /></strong></p> <p><strong>Or more speed?</strong></p> <p>By setting it to a value in the range off 0.25 to 0.5 you should get a similar quality as with LIS disabled. However it will render considerably faster.</p> <p></p> <p>Please note that LIS only works with lights that fall of at an inverse-square rate. It doesn't take lights with another fall off rate into account.</p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>So where do you find this option? At the bottom of the samplign quality rollout of the mental ray's renderer tab in Render Setup.</p> <p><img src="http://help.autodesk.com/cloudhelp/2016/ENU/3DSMax/images/GUID-2F26FB20-8123-48E4-9E24-E67F0C44626D.png" /></p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>And here are some pages in the online help related to the topic of LIS:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://help.autodesk.com/cloudhelp/2016/ENU/3DSMax/files/GUID-DBFFF24F-5419-492B-8889-24E546029279.htm">Sampling Quality Rollout (mental ray Renderer)</a></li> <li><a href="http://help.autodesk.com/cloudhelp/2016/ENU/3DSMax/files/GUID-A83EEE0A-A5BA-4E3C-BFA0-6D633BC5E78B.htm">About Light Importance Sampling</a></li> </ul>Mon, 20 Apr 2015 11:55:10 UTChttp://area.autodesk.com/blogs/maxstation/n262--do-you-have-many-lights-in-your-scene-and-do-you-use-the-mental-ray-rendererOne 3ds Max 2016MaxStation<p>Up to 3ds Max 2015 there were two different flavours of 3ds Max: 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design, both had some features which the other didn't have, the default UI colours were different and until we added the MIX_MAX_DESIGN_BB enviroment variable&nbsp;you had to install both 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design on your render farm to ensure that users could submit from either flavour.</p> <p>With the 2016 release there is no longer a 3ds Max Design flavour, you get all features (SDK, light analysis, Civil View) and the first time you start 3ds Max 2016 you can chose to go for the Classic or for the Design experience.

That works fine as long as the number of lines of text fits on the screen.</p> <p>V1 of the script:</p> <p class="code" style="padding-left: 30px;">m=""</p> <p class="code" style="padding-left: 30px;">for i in selection do&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5em;">m=m+i.name+"\n"</span></p> <p class="code" style="padding-left: 30px;"><span style="line-height: 1.5em;">messagebox m</span></p> <p class="code"><span style="line-height: 1.5em;"><br /></span></p> <p><span style="line-height: 1.5em;">But what if the user selects lots of objects? In that case the message box goes off the screen, you can still hit return to close it but you won't be able to see all the info.

Part 2: RenderersMaxStation<p>The previous post (H<a href="/blogs/maxstation/n268-how-many-cores-does-3ds-max-support">ow many cores does 3ds Max support</a>) was about how many cores 3ds Max would recognise, this one looks specifically at the scanline and the mental ray renderers.</p> <p></p> <p>The scanline renderer is limited to 32 cores. If there are more than 32 cores in the machine you have to have at least Service Pack 1 for 3ds Max 2015 installed otherwise it will crash (from the SP1 readme file:&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5em; font-size: 14px;">MAXX-16801&nbsp;The Scanline renderer caused a program error when rendering with more than 32 processors).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">Like 3ds Max the mental ray renderer will only use a single processor group, so at most 64 cores can be used, but depending on the number of cores in the machine it could be significantly lower (in the example from the previous post the 72 cores will be split in two 36 processor groups).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;"><br /></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">How to maximize render performance? The two approaches from the previous post still apply, you have to ensure that the number of cores is lower or equal to 32 (for the scanline renderer) or 64 (for the mental ray renderer). The options are either disabling hyper-threading (which for compute intensive operations tends to give a 10-20% performance increase) or to run multiple virtual machines (which can have a 3-15% overhead). Both are much better than leaving half the cpu cores of the machine unused.</span></p>Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:40:32 UTChttp://area.autodesk.com/blogs/maxstation/n269-how-many-cores-does-3ds-max-support-part-2-renderersHow many cores does 3ds Max support?MaxStation<p>Until now in order to have lots of cpu cores in a machine you'd have to buy a server in order to get more than two processor sockets and run a Windows Server on it so that all the processors are recognized. Officially that is not supported because we only test 3ds Max on Windows Workstation versions.</p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">The latest announced Intel cpu has 18 cores (</span><a href="http://ark.intel.com/products/81061/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2699-v3-45M-Cache-2_30-GHz" style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">Intel&reg; Xeon&reg; Processor E5-2699 v3&nbsp;(45M Cache, 2.30 GHz)</a><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">), add two of those in a workstation, switch on hyperhtreading and you'll have 72 cores.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;"><br /></span></p> <p>With that many cores you'll run into a problem: 3ds Max doesn't use all of them. With two of those latest Intel cpus it will only use 36 cores...</p> <p>The reason for that is Windows Processor Groups (see&nbsp;<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd405503%28v=vs.85%29.aspx">this MSDN article on Processor Groups</a>&nbsp;for the details). As there are more than 64 processor cores in the system they get split into two processor groups, 36 per group.&nbsp;</p> <p>And as 3ds Max isn't Windows Processor Group aware it will run in a single group only, therefore using only 36 cores.</p> <p></p> <p>T<span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">o maximize utilisation of the cores in the machine there are two approaches:</span></p> <ul> <li>run multiple virtual machines each with a certain number of cores assigned (that could be assymetric: one virtual machine with 64 cores assigned and the other with the rest)</li> <li>disable hyperthreading so that there are 64 or fewer cores.</li> </ul> <p></p> <p>Both of these have a certain performance impact (running virtual machines can cost from 3 to 15% performance and enabling hyperthreading with cpu intensive tasks tends to give between 10 and 20% performance improvement). But even the worst case scenario will better than only using half the processor cores.</p>Wed, 21 Jan 2015 14:14:27 UTChttp://area.autodesk.com/blogs/maxstation/n268-how-many-cores-does-3ds-max-supportControlling how Backburner handles missing bitmaps, xrefs and pluginsMaxStation<p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">With the latest Backburner 2015 version (see<a href="/blogs/maxstation/n265-updated-backburner-2015-available">&nbsp;</a></span><a href="/blogs/maxstation/n265-updated-backburner-2015-available">Updated B</a><a href="/blogs/maxstation/n265-updated-backburner-2015-available" style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">ackburner 2015 available</a><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">) when Backburner encounters missing plugins, maps or xrefs, it reports them as warnings and continues the rendering job. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">If you prefer the old behaviour that these cause an error and therefor don't render the job you can crea</span><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">te a Windows environment variable called 3DSMAX_BACKBURNER_TREAT_MISSING_DLLS_MAPS_XREFS_AS_ERRORS and set its Value to 1.&nbsp;</span></p> <p></p> <p>To c<span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">reate this environment variable in Windows 7:</span></p> <ol> <li><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5em;">Open the Start Menu and right click on Computer.
