Getting approval for the direction a substance is taking can be key when working in larger teams. Because of this we need to be able to save out high resolution renders of our texture work. This is true whether our material creations are going into a game engine such as Unreal 4 or an application such as 3ds Max.
- [Voiceover] When it comes to quick feedback…on a substance, the 3D view is the quickest…and easiest way of seeing where we are up to.…But what if we need to get approval for the look…of a substance from someone who is perhaps off-site…and so is not able to look at our computer screen?…Well, one thing we could do is simply save out a render.…At this moment in time though, the default results…from the render command might not be quite what we want.…To see what I mean by this, let's come to the Camera menu…in the 3D view and select the Save Render command.…
From the dialog that appears we need to make sure…that we are saving the image to the exercise files folder,…calling it test.png, after which we can click Save.…Let's then open up the destination folder…and click to view the image.…And as we can see the image size…actually defaults to that of our 3D view,…something that can be confirmed if we right-click…and open up the properties for this particular image.…Which tells us that it has a resolution of 379 x 350,…
