Define lighting and material options per viewport
- [Voiceover] For each view port,…we can define its display quality settings,…for example, whether we want ambient occlusion.…Which is the contact shadows here.…Or high quality textures, and so on.…And store all of that in a custom preset, per view port.…The per view port settings are…avaliable from the menus,…either the third or the fourth menu.…In the third menu, at the bottom,…you will see per-view presets.…In the fourth menu at the bottom,…per-view preference.…
The per-view preferences tab,…allows us to, for example,…enable selection brackets.…Or display selected objects with edged faces.…We've got a perspective field of view parameter,…which we didn't have before in 3ds Max.…I'm actually more interested in the…per-view presets tab.…And over here, I can, for example,…determine the optimal setting for…my scene and hardware,…so I'll get good performance in the view port,…and balance that with the look.…
For example, I'm not really interested…in the ambient occlusion that's appearing here.…My rendering's not gonna have that anyway,…
