Rendering for compositing in Photoshop requires multiple renders, known as render layers. In this video, George uses 3ds Max's State Sets feature to set up a preliminary layer.
- [Instructor] Our lighting is now in place. … And we can start to render our image. … Now if we were to take this particular image and render it, … we would get something that looks like this. … Now this image may be enough for your presentations … but we're going to take this further. … We're going to take this original master image … and then we're going to create additional render passes … for things such as reflections, … ambient occlusion and so on. … Now we do this in 3ds Max using a feature called State Sets. … Now remember, … this particular image will be our master image … and onto that we will layer additional passes. … So we can set up State Sets for our render. … Now under Rendering, … we have our render setup window … and the first thing we want to do is … just set up our basic render settings. … So I'm going to keep my output to single. … We're just going to render one image here. … And then I'm going to set my output size … to my final output dimensions. … Which is 1920 by 1080. …
