  1. i see this
    incredible!!! amazing work..
    only one problem with the flickering in the backgroud..but the rest of the video are great..

    • It is very nice, and to be honest, the compression makes it hard to tell the source of the flickering. I know the fgshooter was used so I think it’s probably the compression artifacts.

      • fgshooter only works in maya?
        do you use new mentalray features in 3dsmax in mr standalone version?
        i use it but with artur leao script… it works fine but i dont see fgshooter in this script …
        David, congrat for your effort and motivation…. you make a great job!

      • Hi Richard, fgshooter is available in Max but there’s a difference in how the camera translates information from Max to mental ray. This script is designed specifically with Maya in mind. I can’t find it now but I do remember seeing a fgshooter script somewhere online for 3ds Max.

      • Hey guys.

        Thanks for the comments.

        The flickering you see is a result of the compression that has been applied by the client for the web upload. Bit annoying. I will post a link to a 2k clean version sometime next week.
