Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the Physical Camera controls, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- In this video we're going to take a look…at just a few of the many controls…that are available on 3ds Max's new Physical Camera object.…With the camera selected then let's come over…to the modify tab in the command panel…and take a look in the Physical Camera roll-out…where we find plenty of options…that can help us control sensor, lens,…and shutter operations.…Now, by default the sensor in our virtual camera…will behave as per a full frame DSLR camera.…Full frame being a term that describes a camera using…a sensor size that is equivalent to a 35mm negative,…so 36mm x 24mm.…
Typically, in film photography and cinematography…images taken using a bigger negative…tend to produce better quality images…than those generated from smaller negatives,…and the same can also be said…of cameras that use full frame digital sensors.…In general, pictures taken on these are sharper,…they pull out more fine detail in a shot,…they tend to have smoother tones,…and the wider range of tones they produce…can help bring a greater sense of depth to an image.…
