after 3ds max...
show user profile  balletjies
hey guys,

I've been on 3ds max for a couple of months now. helped myself learning the program from forums like this and i'm doing good for a beginner. but have been struggling to create awesome stuff. I usually set up my render quality to more or less to what I want but I always find myself using photoshop to give me that extra bit of result that i wanted in the 1st place. is this normal to work like this or are there some things in max that i'm missing?

thanx for the great forum

Lots, if not most, do some post work in programs like Photoshop.

Besides that, its impossible to answer your question based on you wanting "that extra bit of result"

be more specific, or post a picture and a description of the problem.

Terribly boring signature.

thanx for your rply,

oh,now i c, what i meant was if one can set the brightness, contrast etc. in max without photoshopping it first. i just thought it could be possible to not use photoshop to get a 'good' image

Re: Brightness and Contrast:



As for more "advanced" methods on getting a "good" image. It really just depends on what you're trying to achieve. As TiMoN has already stated:

"be more specific"

Your reply of wanting a "good image" is incredibly vague. You say you've only been using Max for a few months, so it's understandable that you won't know how to do many, many, many things... but don't assume that it can't be done.

Almost all high-end 3D goes through some level of "post" after the render.
It is normal.

BUT....it shouldnt be used to enhance things which should be right in the 3D to begin with.
Brightness/contrast issues are most certainly the result of lighting. Adjust your lighting.........not the image in Pshop.

....etc....etc....
