Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Layering and mapping lens effects, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting (2017).
- [Instructor] Picking up from our last movie…on lens effects,…let's layer another lens effect element, a star.…So we'll have a proper lens flare,…and also map that star, adding some noise or grain…in order to break it up.…I've got a render region selected,…we can see it as a box in the viewport,…let's open up the Rendered Frame window,…and there's my rendered frame from the last movie,…and I'm rendering just that region.…So I'll go into the Rendering menu,…and open up our Effects dialog,…and we've got our Lens Effects listed here.…
Select it, and that will reveal its parameters here.…We want to be in in Interactive mode,…so if you're not, go ahead and turn that on,…and then that region will re-render.…Once that region has updated,…now we can add another element to our lens effects.…Over here we've got a Star element,…select that and click the right-facing arrow…to send it over into the rightmost pane, and make it active.…Scroll down.…We've already got a Lens Effect Globals size of 10.0 here,…and that applies to the star and the glow.…
