I've created a basic how to PDF guide- for Creating a light map (displacement map) in 3d MAx2012.
No max plugins required. Scanline / Light Tracer used.
See attached file.
For a more detailed lightmapping tutorials refer to Monty's V-Ray Lightmap baking tutorial.
We need to raise $35 before the 21st of Jan otherwise we will shutdown!!!!!!!! - I did say that we can only run on donations. I have made a separate hosting goal for the $35. - If we survive I will be seeing what we can do regarding advertising and maybe even look it using a website mining script. If we do use a mining script, it will be voluntary.
