Green screen is a term used to describe the mixing of two images or frames to form one complete image. The most common scenario is the combining of a foreground element with a background image. The colored environment is then removed, isolating the presenter who is then composited with a virtual studio created with 3ds Max.

With MAXScript you can 'remote control' the application by feeding it written commands or playing back a procedure that you recorded using the mouse beforehand. With advanced methods, MAXscript creates anything from small helper programs that solve a single problem to completely customized toolsets that are specifically adapted to your workflow or pipeline.
Chapter 15 - Managing Large-Scale Projects (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 7,580. Language: American English. Published: October 2, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
The author, Spine3D is one of the largest architectural visualization studios in the US. Managing projects is not an easy task. When you take on a large-scale project, your responsibilities multiply and your degree for failure also increases. At the end of the day, all the experience in the world will not be sufficient if you do not plan carefully and manage your time and resources efficiently.
Chapter 14 - Advanced Poly-Modeling (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 5,620. Language: American English. Published: October 2, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
In this chapter we are going to outline some of the key factors that make poly-modeling and subdivision surfaces more predictable, while also improving the quality and speed by which you produce your models.
Chapter 12 - Rigging (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 6,360. Language: American English. Published: October 2, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Entertainment » Computer gaming, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
The two types of rigging—mechanical and character rigging—use different approaches. Mechanical rigging is appropriate for machinery with multiple rigid parts linked together. It uses bones, IK chains and control objects. Character rigging, for animating a flexible skin, uses the Biped tool and the Skin modifier.
Chapter 10 - reactor (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 9,580. Language: American English. Published: September 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
REACTOR IS AN INTERACTIVE PHYSICS engine from Havok that was integrated into 3ds Max 6 and has since become a robust and efficient way for creating all kinds of dynamic simulations in 3ds Max. Thanks to reactor, many animators and visual FX artists from all over the world were finally able to create believable and realistic dynamic animations in an extremely short amount of time.
Chapter 9 - Advanced mental ray Lighting (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 11,710. Language: American English. Published: September 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
This chapter delves into the advanced lighting techniques used within mental ray. We will focus on a CG-interior scene, an outdoor scene with HDR (High Dynamic Range) lighting, and then tie the two subjects together.
Chapter 8 - Render to Texture (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 15,230. Language: English. Published: September 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
One of the main techniques used to reduce rendering calculation time is to remove all light calculations from a scene. In real time 3D, it is done by pre-processing all lighting solutions prior to loading the 3D content. All these light calculations, complex or not, are put directly into the texture maps of the models. This process is called render to texture or texture baking.
Chapter 7 - Exposure Lighting Analysis Tools (3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization)
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 10,120. Language: American English. Published: September 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Architecture
Exposure Lighting Analysis tools can be used for simulating and analyzing physically based Sun, Sky, and artificial lighting in a 3D scene. Ideal for Architectural projects, these tools can help evaluate light intensity in your designs.
