Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video How state sets Work, part of 3ds Max: Rendering for Composites.
- For the duration of this particular exercise,…we're going to be working inside the main State Sets window,…and as we take a look at how…we can go about using state sets inside…our 3ds Max projects.…To affect any recordable changes in the scene,…we will, of course, need to be working inside…an active state.…Indeed, for this particular case,…we're going to need two of them,…from either the State menu itself, then,…or from the main work area…where we can click on the plus icon…at the head of the States hierarchy…or, indeed, from a right-click on the State Sets root,…we need to use the Add State command.…
Now, we do need to be a little bit careful…when adding new states to the list…because if I just right-click…on the State01 entry,…you can see that we actually have the ability…to create what I refer to as…sub or nested states,…which, although extremely useful in some situations,…are probably not what we want to create…in many instances.…Let's rename State01 here by double-clicking on it…and then giving it a name…that identifies the type of operations…
