Use the central upper vertex of the object to create another integral polygon. • Switch to vertex operation mode, select the vertex, and apply the Chamfer command (Fig. 4, a). Note that there is a window icon to the left of the command. If you press this icon, the settings window of the command will appear. 4, a and b: Sequence of creating the living area's basic geometry • Select the resultant polygon and extend it on the Z axis approximately 1 meter (Fig. 4, b). Specify this value on the coordinate entry panel, or enter it directly in the window of the Z coordinate.

ActiveShade can not display such subtlety. We also selected the Absolute Map Bias flag to prevent the shadows from shaking during animation, which is typical for those of this type. Try adjusting the light parameters for yourself. You will undoubtedly notice two more shadow types: Advanced Ray Traced and Area Shadows. These types appeared in 3ds max 5, and are based on the Ray Traced algorithm. The first type enables you to blur shadow borders, whereas the second is used to obtain so-called Soft Shadows.

Shine the beam of light so that the whole object is lit, but not more. This is easy to do using the view from the light source (+<4> keys) and the Light Hotspot and Light Falloff tools. If there are several directional light sources in the scene, 3ds max will ask you to select one from a list. Note You will need to test the rendering many times while choosing the light and material parameters. If your computer is powerful enough, interactive rendering (Viewport context menu à Views à ActiveShade) in one of the viewports can be extremely helpful.
