How to submit a job with 3ds Max and Redshift Renderer

Open your scene in 3ds Max with Redshift Renderer that you want to render online and open the render setup.

3D Render Setup for 3ds Max with Redshift Renderer

In the 'Time Output' section, set if you want to render a single frame or an animation. In the 'Output Size' section, you can define the render resolution.

Go to the 'Render Elements' tab to add all the render elements you need for post-production. Or you open the 'GI' tab and the 'Output' tab to configure more Redshift settings to get less noisy results.

In order to save your output, return to the common tab and in the 'Render Output' section, make sure the 'Save File' option is checked. Click on 'Files...' to define the output name and the rendering format.

Select the format, save the path and set a name for the images you want to render online. Afterward, click on 'Save'.

In order to get a multilayered EXR, please select 'OpenEXR' as output format and click on 'Setup' to open the EXR configuration.

In the 'Main Render Output' section, select the output format for your final image. In the 'Render Elements' section, click on 'Add...' to manually add the render elements, you want to be included on your EXR file or check the option 'Automatically Add/Remove Render Elements From Render Dialog' to include all the previously included render elements. Once you are done, click 'OK'.

Please close the 3ds Max render setup and click on 'Render now' in your toolbar to open the RebusFarm render setup window.

After configuring your RebusFarm settings, please click on the button 'Upload to RebusFarm' at the bottom of the RebusFarm setup window to send your job to render online.

A new window will open for RebusFarm messages, showing all the relevant information, warnings, and errors your scene may have.

If you don’t get an error message, please proceed by clicking on 'Send to RebusFarm' to upload your job to the render cloud.

The Rebus Farminizer will upload your render job including all the assets required for rendering.  You can check the progress of the upload and rendering by visiting the ControlCenter. Once the upload process is completed, the rendering process will start automatically if you activated the 'Autostart render' option before uploading. If not, you will have to start the rendering manually by clicking on the 'Start render' button in the ControlCenter. Check our 'How to use the ControlCenter' section for more details about the ControlCenter.

As soon as the render job is completed, your results will automatically be downloaded from the render cloud to the output save path that you set in your render configuration.
