New ability to batch export 3d files to Proxy. Simple select any number of items into listview and start conversion by choosing desired proxy’s format from menu “Export to…” .
Of course, you remember that Project Manager supports all modern renderers – which means that you can convert the 3d models to V-Ray Proxy, Corona, Final Render, Octane, Maxwell & etc.
New version supports to SmartRefs. SmartRefs is a new advanced external reference plugin for Autodesk 3ds max.
With this tool, you can use the Autodesk Maya, but even more advanced.
Ability to specify a 3ds Max version when save models from scene to library.
New options for merge as xRef objects – such as merge materials, modifiers, tracks and etc.
Updates for default render-presets. New render presets supports to all versions of renderers from old to current.
Adds default presets to Final Render, Octane, Redshift, Fstorm and Arnold renderers.
Of course for receive a better result you can create custom render presets.
New ability to rendering thumbnails with references ( like human figure near tree )
Open your studio and insert desired model used as reference.
Note: Model have to locate inside the “SceneDummy” object.
Open the “Render Thumbnails Preferences” and turn on the checkbox “Use custom studio” and “Fit view”
Turn of the “Fit to Dummy” checkbox.
Project Manager can now render previews for substance shaders faster using sbsrender.exe which shipped with Algorithmic Substance Designer.
Also now you can generate PDF files from items into listview. Supports to any type of assets include materials.
