Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Resumable Rendering, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Ever since I first encountered…resumable rendering in fryrender for 3ds Max…many years ago now, I've been waiting…for something similar to appear in V-Ray…which of course it has…in the form of the resumable rendering check box…found in the Render Setup dialog's frame buffer rollout…when using the V-Ray Advanced Engine that is.…The idea of this feature being…that you can manually stop a render in progress…at any point and then have it resume…from where it left off at a later time…be that some point later in the same day…or possibly even months down the line,…a real life-saving feature if the render is stopped…because of something like a power failure or such.…
The option is usable with both bucket…and progressive image sampling…although it does work slightly differently in each case.…With bucket rendering,…an additional V-Ray image which is a V-Ray-specific version…of the raw file format…gets written to disk in order to temporarily store…the data written by any already completed buckets.…When you go to resume rendering,…
