Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Gamma handling, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- Although the handling of both System and File Gamma options has in recent versions of 3ds Max become greatly simplified, there is still a chance if we have our own copy of 3ds Max set up in a non-default way that we could encounter this Gamma Mismatch warning dialog as we work with the provided scene files for this course. The dialog is simply 3ds Max's way of telling us that the Gamma Settings saved in the scene file differ from the Settings currently at work in the application itself. To make certain that what you see in 3ds Max as you work matches the visual presentation found in these videos, which have all been created using 3ds Max's default Gamma Settings all we need do is select the Adopt the File's Gamma and LUT Settings option and all will be fine.
If we should by mistake go ahead and make the wrong selection here though we don't need to panic as switching gamma options inside 3ds Max is a simple and straightforward process. All we have to do is come to the Customize menu, select the Preferences option, and then in the Gamma and LUT tab of the dialog set Gamma to be enabled, make sure that the Gamma value is set at 2.2, and also ensure that both boxes in the Materials and Colors section are checked. Once that is done everything from the Exercise Files download should work just fine.
