Hello, everybody wazzup - here I’m going to show how to get reflection and refraction without anti-aliasing problem using Scanline renderer in 3dsmax unfortunately it was done on 3dsmax 2012 but the process is same in all version so let’s start it.
2. Press "6" to open Particle View. Create a flow with a Birth event, Position Icon, Speed, Rotation, Shape Instance, Spin, Scale and Material Static.
3. In the Birth Event, set Emit Stop and Emit Start to 0, and Amount to 60. In Position Icon Location to Volume and
5. Now Place you Text or Logo any kind of Stuff in the center of the particles
6. We can see that the Particles are animating at this stage, Now select the frame where you want to show the Text in the Scene in my case I selected the 105 frame
7. Now the particles animating in order to stop the particles in 105 frame we can do in PFlow but it will be messy the good idea is to Use Mesher tool
8. Now goto the Modify panel of Mesher select the pick Object none button and select the ParticleFLow
9. Now we can see two particles in the viewport (ParticleFlow and Mesher) as we move the time slider both the particlesflow and mesher will animate together to break this chain simply right-click on the mesher particles and covert to poly.
And we can switch off the particleflow they are no longer need now or delete it and place static particles right in place of particleflow there.
10. Create three Omni lights and put in different directions with Ray Traced Shadows, Multiplier to 0.7, Color RGB: 245,245,245.
11. Particle Material take empty slot Diffuse: RGB:150,150,150, Specular Level to 53, Glossiness to 55
12. As you look closely to final video below you can see the text only in reflections on bars not directly to do that
The Test result
13. To get a good result in the Final Render we should tweak some setting I’m using Scanline render for this effect.
14. The Final Result of this Tutorial.
