View Full Version : Rendering Wireframes

12 December 2005, 02:39 AM
Does anyone know how to render images with wireframes on them like you see in demo reels? I'm going crazy trying to figure it out. I use both Maya and Max and if someone could tell me how to do it in either program I would appreciate it greatly.

The Maya Vector Renderer (you may need to use plug-in manager to activate it) has just about as many options as you could need, you can set line thickness, hidden line, etc. (Plus in addition to regular image file formats, you can render flash .swf or illustrator .ai vector formats.)

There are few ways to achieve it.
I do it by adding a texture like this: (
and then appliyng a UV map modifier and checking ''face'' checkbox.
It will make the texture to appear on each poly and create that cool wire effect.
Hope I helped. :)

Follow the 'Shaded Wire Material' link in my signature, works for Max, up from version 6.
