How to render an animation in 3DS Max

Many people don’t know how to render an animation in 3ds max, so i will explain you. Its very simple.

1. Open the “Render Setup” and look in “Common” menu. Look in “Common Parameters” and at Time Output. Check the “Range” box and then you can put beetwen what frames do you want to render.

2. Scroll down a little bit and you will find “Render Output”. Click on “Files”. A window will appear like this one >

3. At “file name” you will put the name of the video and “Save as type” choose : .avi

4. Check that box from “Save File” and you are ready to render your animation. Just press Render and wait
