VRay Orthographic Rendering Camera Rig

67 votes
Date Updated: 

Simple VRay camera rig to produce orthographic renderings.

  • Front, Right, Left, and Rear Camera positions
  • Adjustable Rig - X, Y, Z, radius
  • Adjustable Camera Settings to fit object in VFB
  • Test Render button for preview


Camera and Rig:

Perspective Render:

Orthographic Render:

Additional Info: 

Since the viewport won't reflect the final render when in orthographic mode, you have to adjust either the film width or focal length of the camera to get the result you want. That's why I included the test render button to get an idea of how the image fits before sending off the final render.

Decreasing Film Width and/or Focal Length:

Increasing Film Width and/or Focal Length:

Version Requirement: 
Written with 3ds Max 2011, Vray 1.5

I have no issues on it except for my main PC motherboard and videocard. I have it replaced from my insurance (www.protect-o.com ) which is great.

Working great! using 3ds max 2015. Many thanks,

What you need to do is follow the second link where it takes you to the code
writen in maxscript language.
on that page, right click and select save as. This will let you save it as a maxscript
file (ms/mse).
After saving it, go to 3ds max and select 'Customize' from the top menu bar and then
'run script'.
Brows to the location of your file and click ok/run.
This will automaticly prompt the tab you can see in the video tutrorial attached on this page. Very easy to use.
Enjoy and many thanks to the creator.

Having problems while working in version 2014, should've I expected this for compatibility reasons? Or am I doing something wrong?

I know it's a bit after the fact, but I uploaded a video demonstrating how I use the script.

Thanks homebrew useful little

Thanks homebrew useful little script. Not sure what simons problems where but it works fine for me and is fairly straight forward. In my world of arch viz this opens doors to some interesting ideas. Thanks again.

some instructions would be

some instructions would be very useful. otherwise it is just a trial and error-thing.

i found out that first of all you have to move the whole scene way behind 0,0,0 since the rig only goes to a max of 1000.
