    Talking 3DSMax

    Am I correct in saying that Real-Time rendering is where the little white line thingy on the render screen moves really fast instead of really slow?

    If so, how can I get it working?

    I have a video card that supports real-time rendering, and I am using D3D rather that Software of OpenGL.

    Any help guys?

    Haha, Realtime Rendering is that it knows what to render as
    the next picture and renders things so fast it can get up to a
    100 renders per second, thereby creating a movie or game.

    I might be wrong on this, So don't trust me

    Question reply

    Yeah, but does 3DS Max do this automatically or does it need a plugin for it?

    Does what automaticly? Real Time rendering? I don't think you
    understood me well, Real Time rendering is that it does
    everything on the fly. With 3DMax you can only take a picture of
    your scene, not create entire realtime manipulatable movies
    on the fly.

    On the plus side, the image quality tends to be better than with current real-time engines. If you want to see super-high quality rendering, try POV-Ray.

    Well, As your title suggested 3DSmax is a fine renderer.
