Overall functionality and advantages

  • This script uniforms the rendering process of multiple files.
  • It is very useful when you have to render a lot of products using the same lighting setup.
  • All .max files are imported as XRefs and bound to their Control Points (Box helpers).
  • Control Points are used to rotate, move or scale the imported objects, if necessary.
  • If Control Points are not visible increase their size using the spinner.
  • Rendered images are saved as .tga and put into dir 'images' that is the subdir of imported .max files.
  • 'Render All' renders all XRefs from the selected view or all cameras on the Scene.
  • It is not recommended to import a lot of high poly models because it may decrease the PC performance.
