Print Size Wizard | 3dsMax Tips

The Print Size Wizard feature is useful when you plan to print a rendered image. It lets you specify output size, resolution, and orientation in terms of the printed image; that is, using a standard measuring system rather than pixels. It also indicates the approximate uncompressed size of the image file. You can render directly from the wizard on your computer or over a network, or transfer the settings to the Render Setup dialog.

  5. Choose an output orientation: Portrait or Landscape.
  6. When ready to render to a file, turn on Save File, click the Files button, and use the resulting Select TIFF File dialog to specify an output image file.
