View Full Version : Max File size
3rd Jul 2008, 11:11 am
I am creating walkthroughs for my ofice in 3ds Max. I have used so many materials, same times I changed materials for the objects from the project folder, at that time file size automatically increases. :unsure: I don't know which tool we will use to decrease the file size (as just like purge command or filter in autocad). If anybady tells that, that is so helpful to me.

Adding materials should not increase your file size, but if you have materials in the Material Editor that are not being used and you want to get rid of them, you can click the little "Reset Map/Mtl to Default Settings" button. This will reset the Material Slot back to its default settings.

Three issues - Is it the file size, the speed of operation or the time the scene takes to open ?
Keep face numbers down, do not keep modifiers on objects when finished modifying, check face numbers using the summary info dialog, use the multi-res modifier to reduce faces on certain objects, match amount of faces to the amount of detail needed etc. In short, most of your problems are connected to modelling. Check summary info, identify the offending objects, right click on objects that have modifiers and convert to editable meshes. Model efficiently and you can create huge effects with least faces and procedural waste (keeping modifiers on objects). Your problems are the most common and easy to get rid of
Hope this helps
