Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video The render elements UI, part of 3ds Max: Rendering for Composites.
- Having earlier discussed just what a Render Element is…inside 3ds Max, the useful exercise…at this point in our course…would be to take a look at the Render Element UI…in order to get a basic understanding…of how things work there.…To access that, we will need to be inside…the Render Setup dialog,…and I'm just going to use the F10 key here to open that up.…And take note of the fact that in here,…we have a Render Elements tab.…Now, one important piece of information…that we will need to keep in mind…is the fact that Render Elements…are very much Render Engine specific.…
Now by that, I mean that our choice…of current production Render Engine…will, to a large extent, determine the type…or variety of Render Elements that we have access to.…For instance, in this particular version of our start scene,…I currently have 3ds Max's Scanline Engine…set up as Production Renderer.…And so, if I click on the Add button,…which will open up the Render Element Selection dialog,…you see that we have a list…of Scanline Engine compatible Render Elements,…
