Batch Camera Render

251 votes

This script aims to replace standard 3dsmax's Batch Render and imitates Houdini Output Node workflow. Using it you can specify rendering parameters - frame size, frame number, output path - directly to camera object, so every camera in scene 'knows' what it intended to render. Additional functionality is Lighting Assignment - you can specify which light will be turn on or off for selected camera during the rendering.

1.10.3b Fixes:

  • Crash when vray ir/lcache maps are set to auto-save
  • Region render was not set properly during the rendering

This is major update of the script, so it may not be as stable as before. Backup scenes or cameras at least before running this version. More information can be found here - 1.10b Multiple presets for each camera

Previous updates:

1.10.2b Fixes:

  • Problems with render elements paths
  • Copy/paste of render region settings
  • Properly convert render region values when change resolution

New features:

  • Multiple presets for each camera
  • New keyword %presetname% to support multiple presets
  • Distributed rendering checkbox added to vray common settings
  • Bugfix - Net render not starting after cancelling during local rendering.
  • Improved performance with scenes with lots of cameras
  • Added support of Vray RT as a production renderer
  • Added support of using MFRender script to render scenes through BatchCamera script.
  • Bugfix - Error was popping up sometimes during drag-n-drop
  • Bugfix - Render elements didn't render in certain conditions
  • Bugfix - Pre-render/post-render scripts didn't work on network rendering
  • Bugfix - Select All and Toggle All buttons didn't work properly

Useful utility if you need extra image margins for your renderings - it adjusts your camera and render settings so that your old image will be part of the new rendering without changing perspective - just like changing Canvas Size in Photoshop - but in 3D.

PowerCoreTools: 3ds Max's CPU management tool

7 votes


Just released version 1.2 of my PowerCoreTools CPU managment script for 3ds Max

A tool to control CPU usage while 3ds Max is rendering. Automatically sets process priority and affinity ( the number of  CPU cores the render process uses) at render start. Restores the initial settings when the rendering is done. Can be configured to run in a complete transparent  No-UI mode, which is launched right after 3ds Max has started.
This keeps your workstation responsive for other tasks while rendering. A second 3ds Max session stays responsive and can be used to continue work on different tasks.

A look at the following screenshot will probably tell more than thousand words:

A maxscript Utility for the batch generation of cubemap faces across multiple cameras, and optional assembling of a "complete" cubemap in DDS format. The completed DDS texture is ready to use in the DirectX shader material - the original inspiration and motivation for this script.

I am wrinting for those who work with MAX+V-RAY combo and have several render nodes.

I'm sure you have encountered many DR and Backburner problems, that you could only solve by restarting the V-ray spawner or BB server.

I used to do this with remote desktop access, or in worse case, manually back then, but now I have started to develop a system that makes this a lot easier.

Please watch the video introduction.

Quick Vray Camera for 3dsMax2016 and Vray 3.xx

0 votes

Very simply script which allows the creation of  "hidden" Vray Physical Camera in 3dsMax2016 with Vray 3.xx


In the last release of Vray 3.2 for 3dsMax, the Vray Camera does not appear; VRay uses the physical camera of 3dsmax. If you write in maxscript: " vrayCreateVRayPhysicalCamera() " we can create the "hidden" Vray physical camera.

Quick Vray Camera, facilitates the work for us.
