Join Steve Nelle for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the ProOptimizer modifier, part of 3ds Max 2010 New Features.
The new ProOptimizer modifier offers a more interactive approach to optimizing…extremely dense 3D models. Now if you're familiar with the older Optimize…modifier in Max, you know that optimizing objects is done for a handful of…reasons. First, it helps with reducing a scene's overhead as far as memory…requirements, and secondly, it improves performance in both the speed of your…Viewport display and in your render times.…ProOptimizer works by reducing the number of vertices and faces on an object…while still preserving its overall shape and maintaining any material mapping…and vertex color information the object might have. We'll see how it works with…the example we have on the screen.…
Let's start by first inspecting our mesh, which we'll do by selecting the model…and heading out for. Now as you can see we've got quite a heavy piece of…geometry. Let's go ahead and apply the ProOptimizer and see if we can't lighten things up.…In the Optimization Options, about half way down, Max offers a couple…
