3ds Max Jigsaw Multi-Region Rendering
Please note that due to changes made to the Nitrous viewports in 3ds Max 2014, the region gizmos might appear slightly different in color and behavior. This is true for all Manipulators in 3ds Max and is beyond our control. Using non-Nitrous graphics modes or earlier versions of 3ds Max (e.g. 2013) should match the look of the gizmos shown in these tutorials. Click here to read our blog all about Jigsaw.
The following video provides an overview of the updated region rendering options of the integrated 3ds Max Submitter in Deadline (a.k.a. SMTD - Submit Max To Deadline).
