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.
I will no longer be hosting XLNation as of March 1, 2017. Unless some one steps forward to take over the domain name and provide hosting XLNation will shutdown. If you are seriously interested in taking on this project and can technically and financially support the project please contact me.
