Hey everyone!

This week’s Monday Movie is about how you can lower your render times in 3d Studio Max. Optimizing renders is a critical skill that hasn’t been very mainstream, even though it’s still important. We’re going to look at four of seven techniques:

  1. Changing the render size,
  2. Rendering areas,
  3. Changing lighting parameters, and
  4. Lowering render sampling.

We’ll be taking this render from 25 seconds down to 7 seconds without big changes in quality.  Knowing where you can shave time off of renders is crucial to your productivity and to speeding up your learning.
