3ds Max Rendering Error - Parameter

This article aims to share the causes and solutions for rendering error in 3ds Max caused by the parameter settings. For 3ds Max rendering submission, it contains a wide range of parameters and their settings, when a parameter is set wrongly, there will be many problems arising, one of which is the occurrence of output image abnormalities. This part is divided into five detailed key points:


1. PNG Format Output Error

2. Mentalray FGM Rendering Error

3. Scene Unsaved Information Solution

4. TGA Output Format Compression Setting

5. Gamma Error



1.    PNG Format Output Error

A pop-up window will appear on desktop client during render process, causing CPU to stuck and eventually leading to fail rendering.

This can be solved by changing the format of the output image to .tga, .tif, .exr and etc.

There are 2 methods to change the format of the output image:

    i.    On Desktop client

    image.png

     

    ii.    On 3ds Max scene file

2.    Mentalray FGM Rendering Error

        1.    Mentalray FG file not being uploaded will affect rendering:

                a.    Resulting in incorrect render result.

                b.    Resulting in flickering sequence animation.


        2.    Mentalray FG file error cause:

                a.    FG map file is not uploaded (Desktop client is unable to retrieve Mentalray FG parameters information).


       3.    This can be solved by:

                a.    Please use RayvisionSync transmission tool to upload .fgm file to our platform (Upload path has to be the same as the path in the scene).

                image.png

                  

                b.    If no .fgm file is used, please select “Off (Do not Cache Map to Disk)” under Final Gather Map.

3.    Scene Unsaved Information Solution

        1.    Scene unsaved situation can lead to following problems:

                a.    May lead to fail rendering

                b.    Cause analysis process unable to obtain the related file parameters information


        2.    Solution (Set save scene information):

                a.    On the menu bar, select “Customize – Preferences… – Files – Save File Properties”:

                image.png

                image.png

                                 

                b.    Enable save file properties by checking "Save File Properties” and then submit the task to our platform for rendering.


4.    TGA Output Format Compression Setting

        1.    Issue: frame0000_composed got stuck for a long time and showed "error" in a multi-tile/distributed rendering task. It is found that the file is still in the copy status, the finished file is 68GB. The render log showed that it is still in copy status.

        image.png

        image.png

          

        2.    Solution: The user has to tick “Compress” option in V-Ray setting, or else the output file is big. Below are the reference figure for tick and untick “Compress” option:

        image.png

        image.png


5.    Gamma Error

        1.    This is due to Gamma correction output type error.

        2.    If you modify the relevant parameters by the following way, the brightness of the rendering result will be processed and saved in the file type that can support this type of effect, if unsupported file type is used to save the effect, the brightness might not be what you expect.

        3.    Alternatively, if you are using a specific version of 3ds Max, the incorrect render command problem may also result in incorrect gamma problem.

        Correct Effect:

        image.png

        

        Wrong Effect:

        image.png

          

        4.    The following are common types and the ability to save gamma corrections:

        5.    Please choose the file type above that states “Yes” for ability to save gamma correction.
