how do ppl render the models so nicely?
show user profile  lioric
I made a robot and when i render the model is in a black background with the polygon shape's colors

but when ever i see any tutorial, the finished model is in a nice light gray color in a white background

can some some tell me or direct me how to achieve this rendering technique

It's called a "clay render".

Google will bring up many tutorials.

White background
matte/shadow material

That's about it.

1) Read help files/manuals that came with MAX
2) Do tutorials that came with MAX.

The above will completely show you, step-by-step how to go from "black background with polygons shape's colors" to "nicely textured and lit scene with background".

Once you've done that,...then you can look in the "tutorials that show the finished model in a nice light gray color in a white background" as I am guessing these tutorials might teach you this?

And just so I do not come off as a total wanker:
1) Create cyc model that contains floor and back wall
2) apply white material to cyc
3) Place model on floor of cyc and apply grey material
4) Place a couple lights around to taste....
5) Render
6) Depending on your renderer....enable GI and turn down the intensity of your lights a bit...
