3ds Max rendering
show user profile  beebeecivic
Hi guys, I am having trouble with the rendering window. Before when I use to render the window would show me a basic version of the outlines of the render and then it will start to render the scene. That way I know what I will expect. But now it just gives me the final image without it letting me preivew. Is there a setting i should try to get it back to the default?

im not sure what your are referring to but maybe you mean final gather? in rendering settings common tab press the assign renderer and choose mental ray or if its already selected make sure final gather is on in the indirect illumination tab

Like the first few seconds of the rendering it lays out a abstract view of what is going to be rendered. Right now it jus jumps to the render screen without the "abstract" step of the scene.

The "abstract" sounds like the final gather pass of mental ray, as the Stabmeister said.
