This is the second release of the Arnold for 3ds Max (MAXtoA) plugin. It does not include support for all Arnold or 3ds Max features. See the online documentation for further details. 3ds Max 2017 Service Pack 2 is required, and provided in the MAXtoA installation.


Cloud Rendering Service

For a limited time and as a technology preview, the Arnold plug-in for 3ds Max can be used in combination with the 3ds Max cloud rendering pilot.  The configuration is quick and simple. Install MaxToA and then follow this link to access the service:  From there, you will be guided to install the 3ds Max Cloud rendering plug-in.  Once you have a model ready to submit, you can trigger the upload directly from 3ds Max.

Deformation Motion Blur

MAXtoA now support both Transform and Deformation motion blur options.
Ensure that Motion Blur is enabled in the Physical Camera, and adjust the settings in the Render Setup dialog box to modify the effect.
