Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting sensor size and focal length, part of 3ds Max 2016 New Features.
- With our physical camera created…and approximately placed in the scene,…let's look at its physical parameters.…To see them most effectively,…I want to turn on Safe Frames…in the Camera view.…One way to do that,…is to select that Camera view…and just use the keyboard shortcut for Safe Frames,…which is "shift+f".…And now, the view is cropped to a perfect square…because those are the settings…that I put in my Render Setup dialog.…Over on the extreme far-right of the interface,…we have our Render buttons.…
Let's just quickly detour…into the Render Setup dialog.…In the Common tab,…you'll see I have a width and height of 480 pixels,…with an aspect ratio of 1.000.…Let's go into the Renderer settings for Mental Ray,…and bring the quality down a little bit…for testing purposes.…I'll bring it down to 0.5,…and then also disable final gathering,…in Global Illumination.…Just to speed up our render test,…I'm going to disable Final Gather.…
Close that Render Setup dialog,…and let's take a look…at the camera physical parameters.…Select the camera,…
