renderers

Recommended Posts

Hi all, having just read the Max/Maya debate thread, i was wondering what the deal was with seperate renderers? i''ve only used the default MAX renderer, but someone mentioned the Renderman software (which is obviously a little extreme for my current needs)and that made me curious about seperate rendering packages. Do they all support MAX files?? is it simply a case of loading MAX files into a dedicated (and, i assume, better) rendering package and letting it do it''s thing? just curious really, any excuse to up the quality of my work and gain extra marks!! thanks in advance for any help offered.

renderman uses the RIB file format. You''ll have to convert your max files into rib before you can render with any renderman renderer (PRman, 3dlight, aqusis, air....)

the standard rib exporter from most 3d packages is really poor, so you''ll have to use an plugin which converts into rib. (maxman(?), mayaman...)
