Learn how to remove and convert scene nodes for an uninstalled renderer.
- [Instructor] With Autodesk's acquisition of Solid…Angle in 2016, Arnold became the new high end production…renderer in 3ds Max.…And it replaced Mental Ray.…And although Mental Ray is still available from…Invidia as a free plug in for a single work station,…there are some real key advantages to using…Arnold, you may have a need to convert your old…Mental Ray scenes to Arnold.…Or perhaps to another renderer such as the ART Renderer…from Autodesk.…
And this is done using a tool called the Scene Converter…and my friend George Maystree covered that briefly…in the course ART Renderer 3ds Max.…But I want to revisit that because we need to go…a little bit deeper into the Scene Converter to find out…its limitations and what we need to do to actually…really completely clean our scene from all of the…unknown nodes such as the Mental Ray materials and so on.…So I've got a scene prepared for that and this was…from another course, which is 3ds Max advanced lighting.…
