View Full Version : FumeFX Render problem

01 January 2007, 02:47 PM
Hi, guys!
I have little problem when render my FumeFX smoke
The problem is that the brightness of pictures in my sequence jitters from frame to frame. So the 1st frame is little brighter, the 2nd - little darker and so on. So when playback I have blincking of my finall video.

Any ideas?

I'm using 3DMax 8.0

You might want to encrease Step Size to around 300 and Jittering might give a try to about 8.
I've had the same issue, so i crancked that up so high, and it was looking fine, plus try rendering in some other format like targa or tiff, see yourself.

Hm... And what version of 3DMax do you use?

Did you use any lights in your scene?

I'm using 9 but when upping the render steps, that had solved my issue with flickering, when rendering.

I've also heard, that SintiSati has known issues while rendering.
What i was told, when i simulate the scene and save it, i have to close max and reopen, after that, put on render and don't touch anything, let it render.
I haven't tryed that yet.

@xcomb: it works, but it's annoying, everytime you've done a simulation, you have to restart max and then render. but it does work.

and i tryed cranking up the steps, but really, that doesn't work too well. i guess we gonna have to wait for an update to fix this problem completly.
