Tip: Look at Composite in 3D Studio Max 2011 (AKA Toxik)

In this new tip tutorial for 3ds max, we’ll take a look at Composite, (aka Toxik), a new “feature” that can be found in 3ds max 2011. We’ll see how we can create a simply 2 passes render, delivering a beauty pass and ambient occlusion pass.

Then we’ll go inside Composite and we’ll see how to create our 1st composition project, how to import images, use lens effects, and how to blend and comp two nodes to obtain final image. Final part is to check how to use output node to render final images..

*Note this tutorial is completed in 3D Studio Max 2011

    Try to work on render passes, like light passes and so on, and composing them in composite 2011.

    Very nice. This really opened the box to what is new in Max 2011. Now I need to upgrade for sure after seen this implementation of “Composite”. It saves alot of prepost work, as well.
