Quote from tikshow :hm, i can do it, but ah, i have the latest version of vray(it's hard too find, and i can't post it where can you find it) and i have the latest 3d studio max(2008), and you can't open the .max files with the older versions

You can save 3dsmax files as previous versions, and I'm sure anyone who got his hands on one version of vray can pretty much find the latest one too.
P.S. You don't have the latest 3d studio max.. I do. It's the 2009 one.
How about a VRay Render Kit ?

I was wondering, what if we prepared a VRay ready to render kit with all the lfs models?
Just like the Brazil one.
Anyone willing to contribute ?

Usually such problems occur when u have 2 surfaces interfencing (like 2 perfectly alligned ground planes) or when the normals arent right..

Quote from biggyb :ok guys i noticed many people asking bout rendering and many more to come so to end all this can someone just post a step by step tut on how to do this and sticky it? i have 3dsmax and what now? ive never used it befour so can someone tell me exactly step by step what to do plz? how do i open it how do i put on a skin how do i render it? someone please! put an end to all the questions.

By your post i can understand you are not willing to learn the right way, you are just asking for the easiest way to render your skins. If you just want some skins rendered just post to the proper thread and i'm sure somebody will render them for you.
If indeed you find an easy way to do the renders yourself, im pretty sure you are gonna get bored after 4-5, and stop. So what's the point?
Are you willing to learn some new software that has TONS of uses, or are you just bored waiting in the Render-My-Skin thread's queue?
The only way to make your own renders is to have the geekiness and experiment with 3dsmax more and more till you get what you want.

XCNuse: the Honda scene uses no GI, just 3 VRayLights. Btw, he had the scene posted (without the car) in Evermotion, but i cant find it anymore.. damn

edit: Yep, he removed it from his site. Im sure if you send him an email you'll be able to get it from him.

Quote from XCNuse :all you have to do is take pictures in a circle... its a giant panoramic (except it goes upward and lengthwise rather than just one of those ways)

unless.. you dont know how to do that?

I know how to make vertical or horizontal panoramics, i dont know how to make one that goes both ways though.. how do u stitch the photos together?

Quote from XCNuse :no.. it can use it if it did get the license, its just a bit pricey

man if i got a dollar everytime this track was suggested...

Well.. what about the devs setting up a donations system ? The whole community votes on what the new addon will be (track or car) and each one donates as much as he can. A page with dons / person credits would be nice too.
oh wtf? am i dreaming again?

You can do it all in 3dsmax,
I'd recommend reading this tutorial: http://images.autodesk.com/adsk/files/3dsmax_ref_vol1.pdf
It would save us alot of time.. There's stuff we cant just explain in a forum post, you need screenshots and stuff in order to understand. If you complete these tutorials, im pretty sure you'll be able to do the stuff you want.
After all, if you dont learn 3dsmax's basics, then whats the point? You're gonna do 3-4 lfs renders and get bored.

Most of the people here use Autodesk 3D Studio Max + Brazil for the easy renders. If you still want to use 3dsmax and go more advanced, you'll be using 3dsmax + VRay. If you want a freeware 3d app, you'll be using Blender.

Quote from Ian.H :Ewwwww! I think not

Brazil's horrible.. both vray and finalrender are much better

Agreed..
There's a free version of VRay out with some limited features.
Check out these links:

Quote from XCNuse :actually... mental ray (free) is the best renderer out there, and is used by the profesionals, the others such as raytrace, vray, brazil, maxwell, renderman, and final render are actually just alternatives that.. although can create good images are nowhere near the original mental ray

its kinda like the old saying, you may read books, but i have more years under my belt; and mental ray... has been a wip render software for what i believe over a decade and a half, while these others are really only half a decade or less old

besides blender though, i've heard of milkshape.. er.. which nevermind is 25$ or 25 euro, there's something else though that is free but i can't recall what its called

ok, i finally found what i was looking for
i've come across this guy who has a website (www.colacola.se), who is extremely well known for his amazing renders and quality on his airplane models, and i was looking through a tutorial of his once, and said he was using this program wings3d, which is a free nurms modeler, i dont know of anyone that has ever tried (much less heard) of it, so i guess you could test it out and see how it works for you, otherwise the only best alternative i know of is blender which supports a TON of stuff for being free
http://www.wings3d.com/

Well.. i tried it for 15 mins. Its totally different than 3dsmax but its interface is very simple. Now, about modelling a car or something, i dont see any way how to. Any idea if there are any tutorials around?

Yep, what Jakg said is right.
Btw, if you didnt understand anything in blender, what makes you think you are gonna find 3dsmax easier?
For you, and everybody else who is planning to use 3dsmax for LFS renders i'd recommend reading Autodesk's tutorial: http://images.autodesk.com/adsk/files/3dsmax_ref_vol1.pdf
(or at least the first 2 chapters) in order to get a basic idea of the user interface.
