How to make a Realistic Towel, Carpet and Grass in 3ds max

3d towel
A fantastic tutorial to make complex fiber texture which can be a good example on how to make a 3D Towel , Carpet or Grass with the same concept.To replicate this is cg, the obvious solution is to use a hair system to produce those fibers. The results will look good, especially close up, but that technique is perhaps overkill, especially if the object is off in the distance. Hair can be expensive to render, and time consuming to set up. So this tutorial explains a method to do objects such as Towels, Carpets or Grass using displacement.

Copy \ Paste Biped animation
Additional Info:

This script method was inspired by Copy/Paste Obects by Christopher Grant.
It’s not a TRUE copy/paste via the windows clipboard – but it will let you very quickly copy animation bip from one file to

another.

Usage:
Select the biped objects with animation you want to copy. Run ‘copy bip’. Now run the ‘paste bip’ into either the same file

or you can load another instance of max and ‘paste’ animation bip into another biped.

CityTraffic 2.0 released

CityTraffic is a plug-in for 3ds Max which helps to create car traffic flow on the roads and off-roads.
Special road editor and automatic cars setup substantially accelerates preparation of scenes for the simulation of traffic movement.
Huge variety of configurations for each car, whether it is adjustment of a suspension bracket or style of driving, give the ability to create realistic simulation.
Dynamics calculation makes movements on complicated surfaces more realistic, and the artificial intelligent system helps cars to operate independently.

city traffic 2.0

New features in version 2:

New system of building road networks based on splines

Automatic construction of standard intersections

Advanced Artificial Intelligence for Vehicles

More realistic behavior of traffic flow

Increased speed of simulation calculation

Six wheeled vehicle support

Simplified system for cloning vehicles

Simplified and expanded use of traffic lights function

New objects are "speed limiter" "obstacle," "stop line"

Improved parking

Improved suspension dynamics of vehicles

Download V-Ray RT GPU BETA for 3ds max

vray rt gpu
The so expected GPU based rendering tool by Chaos Group is now in public beta. The GPU version of the interactive rendering engine V-Ray RT for 3ds Max allows up to 30 times faster rendering times and real time interaction with the virtual environment within the 3ds Max. After the beta period the V-Ray RT GPU will become part of V-Ray 2.0 to deliver a complete and extremely powerful rendering solution for the demanding requirements of every production pipeline.

The V-Ray RT GPU Beta is open to all current users of V-Ray RT for 3ds Max.
In order to participate in the beta program a separate V-Ray RT GPU license is required.

To keep yourself up-to-date on the GPU loop, check out all the impressive features now available on GPUs and join the beta program:

• Real time interaction within 3dsMax
• Fully integrated within 3dsMax
• Progressive path tracing
• Production ready renders
• Open CL based
• Highly scalable
• Distributed rendering
• Cross-platform rendering
• Real time shading
• Real time lights set-up

How to become a beta tester
Requirements: Be current V-Ray RT for 3ds Max user. If you would like to purchase V-Ray RT license in order to be eligible to beta test V-Ray RT GPU you will automatically receive a special upgrade price to V-Ray 2.0. For more information on V-Ray 2.0 as well as on the upgrade prices and policy please, click here.

Licensing: In order to run V-Ray RT GPU you have to obtain a separate license. Please, read the installation guidelines and follow the procedure carefully.

Installation process:
I. Download and install V-Ray RT GPU beta for 3ds Max. To do that log into our website with the credentials that were provided to you upon your purchase of V-Ray RT Advanced for 3ds Max. Using different credentials will not allow you to download the installation files from the download section of our website.

II. Use the automated system to license your copy of V-Ray RT GPU for 3ds Max.

1. Generate a WBC file
The WIBU Control File (.WBC) is a WIBU specific file that contains information about the number and type of licenses available on a WIBU dongle. It also allows Chaos Group to remotely reprogram a dongle with any number and type of licenses. To generate a WBC file please follow the procedure as follows:
• Make sure the dongle is plugged in and start a license server if it is not already running
• Open a web browser on the same workstation (Internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox for example) and type this into the address bar (this is a regular web site link):
http://localhost:30304/goupgrade
Please type the link exactly as is it and press enter.
• When the "Success" page opens after the operation is done, save the remote context file (context.wbc) by right-clicking on the link and using Save Link As.. / Save Target As…;As…;

2. Log-in to our web site with the credentials that were provided to you upon your purchase of V-Ray RT Advanced for 3ds Max. This is important in order for the system to recognize you as a registered V-Ray RT Advanced for 3dsMax user!

3. Go to http://www.chaosgroup.com/en/2/uploadWBCFile.html

4. In the first field provide a valid e-mail address for you to receive a file with extension ".rtu" that you need to reprogram the dongle with the additional V-Ray RT GPU for 3dsMax licenses

5. Browse and select the context.wbc file that was previously generated. Click upload

6. Once the system processes your request you will receive an e-mail with an ".rtu" file attached.
Please bear in mind that we have to process an enormous amount of requests, so you may have to wait up to 48 hours for us to process your request

7. Save the ".rtu" file

8. Make sure that the dongle, for which the WBC file was generated, is plugged in and the WIBU drivers are installed

9. Double click on the ".rtu" file.

The V-Ray RT GPU for 3ds Max licenses will be added to the dongle. The number of V-Ray RT GPU for 3ds Max licenses added to the dongle will be the respected amount as the number of V-Ray RT Advanced for 3ds Max licenses that are currently on the dongle.

Phoenix Fluid Dynamics released

phoenix FD
Chaos Group
officially announced the release of their new Fluid Dynamics plugin Phoenix FD plugin for 3ds Max. A unique approach was taken when developing the Phoenix FD simulation core. Aggressive internal optimizations allow for reduced calculation times while keeping the whole simulation physically accurate. This allows some additional processes like pressure decay, thermal radiation cooling and mass-temperature relation to be simulated.. Chaos Group are also offering promotional pricing until September 10th.
