Render with Max Shortcut

Another one of those little things that can save up a ton of time in day to day productions.

I’ve added a simple “render with 3ds Max” shortcut to my right-click menu, so that I don’t have to open up Max if I need to render a scene. This actually came in handy on the current project where I was modifying a few scenes and re-saving them. Then I went through a few of them manually and needed to render them out quickly for reference. No need to actually run Max, open the scene, hit F9… it was all setup, I just needed to render them out.

If you want to modify your right-click menu this same way, just modify this registry key (3ds Max 2013 in this case):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\3dsmax\Shell\Render]
@="Render with 3ds Max 2013"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\3dsmax\Shell\Render\Command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Autodesk\\3ds Max 2013\\3dsmaxcmd.exe\" \"%1\""

Done. :)

Shotgun new price banner

I was shocked and very pleased to hear that Shotgun Software decided to unify their pricing and bring it down to $49 USD per month per user with the API! How awesome is that?!

That brings me to a thought of actually releasing our duberPython plugin for a ridiculously low price so that EVERYONE can use Shotgun and our Python module in their pipeline!

Let me know what you think, guys and I’ll prep the installations in the meantime.
