View Full Version : I need help with a max tutorial

10 October 2006, 03:45 AM
Hey everyone, sorry if this is posted in the wrong area, but there's so many!
Um yeah, I saw this really cool sight on here called and it has heaps of effects I was after. The one I tried out first was the Energy ball (
Although a little confusing (probably because he used max 5 and a few things have changed) I got through it well enough. Apart from the final section. Just after applying the video Post effects. He talks about going into the object properties of Outer Sphere and changeing the Object Channel to 1. However I can find no such option anywhere!!!
My thoughts are also that this directly effects half of the effect i'm trying to achieve, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

rightclick on your object, go to properties and change the object ID (bottom right part) from 0 to 1
there you go.
