Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video V-Ray proxy, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Although V-Ray proxies are yet another tool…that has been around for a long while now,…given the fact that there have been…quite a few workflow enhancements…added to them in the 3.1 to 3.3 updates,…they're definitely worth taking a quick look at here.…In our test scene then,…we have a clump of Max AC trees that,…as individual objects, couldn't really be…considered high in terms of polygon count.…But seeing as they do collectively amount to about…one and a quarter million polys,…and seeing as we could potentially use this collection…in scenes where we will want to replicate the group…quite a few times,…it would probably make sense for us to go ahead…and create a V-Ray proxy out of them,…one that we could then add to an ongoing proxy collection.…
To create a proxy all we need to do…is select all of the trees that we want…to add together as a single proxy object,…which in this instance is all of them.…And then after right clicking on the selection,…choose the VR mesh export option,…which should bring up the export dialog.…
