Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using state sets for rendering in passes, part of Rendering for Composites inside 3ds Max.
- In this particular video we're going to use State Sets…to help us break up and then render our scene…as a series of passes or layers.…Now in this particular instance…we are only splitting our scene into two distinct layers.…But given that the process would be the same whether we were…creating two, 22 or even 102 separate passes…there will hopefully be plenty that we can take away…from this exercise in terms of making use…of State Sets in a very specific work flow.…
The first thing that we want to do…is add a new state to the scene.…And then, do a little renaming.…So one state we will call Environment.…And the other can be called Objects.…The idea being that we will create separate render passes…for the objects sitting on the shelves…as well as the shelves and room geometry.…With the Objects State mode active then,…let's come over to the docked Layer Explorer…and with Sort by Layer mode active,…use the Control key to multi-select…the Brackets, Room and Shelves layers.…
What we need to do then is right-click…and from the quad menu choose the Select Child Nodes option.…
