Set up your Render Output in 3DS Max

Back in 3DS Max, go into the Render Setup (Shortcut: F10), and make sure your render is set up correctly. If you have performed your test renders previously, this should all be set up already.

  1. Under “Render Output” click on ‘Files”.

  2. In the pop-up window, navigate to This PC > RenderOutput (R:). This will bring you to the folders made in the previous step. Simply type a file name (typically .png, .jpeg and .tiff for image files), then press save.

Animation sequences will always be numbered at the end of the file name. If you wish to date or number your files, put it at the start of the name so it does not interfere with the numbering.

Set up Render Element Outputs

Remember that if you need to output your Render Elements – you will also have to specify a file output path. For example; if you are using VRay, this can be found under the V-Ray > Frame Buffer tab near the bottom of the menu.

Once you are done with this, you are ready to submit your job for Rendering via Deadline!
