3ds max 2010 system utilisation

Hello all, Sorry to keep asking what are probably noob type questions but I have another small question to ask. I use 3ds max 2010 and I've found that when I render anything it only uses 3 or 4gb of ram. I have a quad core CPU with 16gb of ddr3 with a gtx260 graphics card. I have windows 7 ultimate ...

3ds max sheilds

Hello all, does anyone know of any way I can create sheilds? I would like the sheild to react when an object hits it. Like the energy is being dispersed. So far I have created the phasers by using a path constraint with an object following it, I've sped up the object to complete the path constraint ...

Making a ship look damaged

Hello all,

I want to create the effect of a battle damaged ship using an existing model in 3DS max 2010.

What would be the best way of doing this? ideally I want to create wholes with broken bits of the ship visible.

Thank you

Re: Rendering animation in 3ds max 2010

No, the deadline software gives you a choice of plugins for the software you're using. There's loads to choose from. I've set my farm up to do both 3ds max and after effects! I can render with all the fancy settings on and I don't have to worry about sitting waiting for hours for a 10 second scene!
