Victoria, BC - March 8, 2012
cebas Visual Technology Inc. announces the immediate availability of psd-manager 3.1 - “the V-Ray release” of the multi-layer PSD exporter for Autodesk 3ds Max. The free update provides major workflow improvements and new features for those using psd-manager 3 in combination with the V-Ray renderer.
Full V-Ray Framebuffer Support:
psd-manager can now directly access the V-Ray framebuffer. All psd-manager features are now supported in combination with the V-Ray framebuffer, including render elements export, mask generation for objects and materials and 8/16/32-bit HDR PSD export. V-Ray color corrections may now optionally be applied to the PSD file. psd-manager 3.1 also makes it possible to output V-Ray render elements when using the 3ds Max Batch Render tool together with the V-Ray framebuffer.
MultiMatte – Automatic Splitting & Naming:
New automatisms have been introduced for users relying on MultiMatte elements besides the MatteShooter powered built-in selection mask generation capabilities of psd-manager. These make V-Ray MultiMatte render elements much more convenient to work with. MultiMatte elements can now automatically be split into multiple PSD selections or layers automatically. This avoids the hassle of having to select a specific RGB channel in Photoshop each time. PSD selections/layers are also automatically named based on the object-IDs or material-IDs they are based on – thus making them easier to find.
Lens Effects Bloom & Glare export as PSD layers:
The V-Ray Lens Effects Bloom & Glare can now be saved as layers to the PSD file. psd-manager automatically places them at the correct position into the PSD file. Saving V-Ray framebuffer channels generated by 3rd party V-Ray plug-ins is also supported.
Free Trial Download:
A free trial version of psd-manager 3.1 for 3ds Max can now be downloaded from the psd-manager website. A free After Effects plug-in providing 3D -camera and point helper animation transfer from 3ds Max to After Effects is also included.
Ease of use & Flexibility:
V-Ray has always been supported by psd-manager and thanks to full V-Ray framebuffer support specific workflows for it now no longer have to be followed - it just works. psd-manager provides a consistent user experience with consistent results independent of the framebuffer used.
New advanced options have been introduced to control gamma correction of render and render elements.
Daniel Schmidt (the Autodesk authorized developer of psd-manager) likes to thank Vladimir Koylazow from Chaos Group for his support through the years, without which the high level of integration between psd-manager and V-Ray would not have been possible.
