When is the best time to export REVIT 8 Model into AutoDesk 3DMax 7 for better Rendering capabities? The Project consist of Residential Exterior Home Renderings. My clients complain that the out put of Revit rendering is too rigid. They are requesting that I build the model in revit only. This is my first Rendering efforts. Any advice? Is this even possible?

If you are not worried about internal rendering than I would export with minimal info needed in the model. don't know about max, but if Viz is working than Max should... make sure you have installed the Revit/Viz plugin, this will allow all the material you assigned in Revit to be exported to Viz.

You can link directly to a Revit file using Max 7.5 and retain all the materials from Revit into Max. I only use Max, Accurender compared to Max is like a Commodore Vic-20 (vintage 1983) VS AMD Athlon FX-57.

PS.... Why would Autodesk even write a plugin for linking Revit to Max if they themselves didn't think Accurender sucks ???? Why sell one really good, all round awsome piece of software which does everything for the price of one, when you can sell two halves for price of two !!!!

AMEN! Ritska I guess they want us to keep spending our HARD EARN money on them. smile. 3DMax is an autodesk product as well as Viz. thanks for your responses everyone. I am going for the knowlledge of REVIT Rendering and 3DMax together. I decided to learn Max instead of viz, because it is known to create better Interior Views. I have a request from a client for this as well. My understanding is that Viz is best for Architectural exteriors. After installing the Trial Version of 3dmax, there are plugins for architectual materials as well. Well, I am off with the Autodesk Revit Force and Max behind me.
