Last Updated: April 5, 2019

AMD Radeon™ ProRender is a powerful physically-based rendering engine that enables creative professionals to produce stunningly photorealistic images. Built on highly efficient, high-performance Radeon™ Rays technology, Radeon ProRender's complete, scalable ray tracing engine uses open industry standards to harness GPU and CPU performance for swift, impressive results.

This Radeon ProRender plug-in for Autodesk® 3ds Max® is a feature rich solution which enables the user to render high quality images of their models. With this tool, users can render and then perform a host of post image processes.

Note: If you updated to Microsoft Windows® 10 Fall Creators Update, verify that OpenCL™ support is enabled on your graphics card.

The latest Radeon ProRender for Autodesk 3ds Max plug-in can be downloaded from the following links:

Material Library for Radeon ProRender

The Material Library for Radeon ProRender has been updated with new materials which also now uses Uber Shader as a basis. The shared Material Library (Blender, 3ds Max, and Maya) for Windows and macOS® is now separated from the Radeon ProRender plug-in installers However, the material updates have been made for all operating systems.

It should also be noted that the files for the Material Library are to be updated independently of the plug-in installers.

The latest Windows Material Library for the Radeon ProRender plug-ins can be downloaded from the following link:

Radeon ProRender for 3ds Max v2.5 Highlights

  • AI-Accelerated Denoiser provides an extra denoiser based on machine learning technology.
  • Adaptive Sampling allows the renderer to focus samples on areas of the render that are higher in noise, while ending early in areas without noise. This allows the artist to raise max samples and get less noise without raising render times as much.
  • Autodesk 3ds Max 2020 support.
  • An updated V-Ray conversion script is available.
  • Animations of frames can be exported in the RPR format. RPR exports of animations will cache static textures etc. to minimize export size.

Fixed Issues

  • Uber shader may look different but will be more physically correct.
  • Fixed issue with camera inside a refractive/sss/volume object.
  • Fixed issue with anisotropy in Uber producing a checker pattern.
  • Fix for textures with .jpeg extension (.jpg worked fine).
  • Fixed an issue of adaptive subdivision with displacement map spinning the CPU at 100% before render starts.
  • Fix light motion blur on CPU.
  • Mesh export time is improved.
  • Fix refraction + volume on CPU.
  • Fix CPU crash for using "Opacity" AOV with volume objects.
  • Fixed a few errors with render elements (AOVs).
  • Export progress displays for both active shade and production render.
  • Hardware device settings are saved in preferences, not per scene anymore.
  • Better Error reporting on errors.
  • A bug where ProRender could crash on the second render after cancelling another render is fixed.
  • Tone mapping for active shade is the same as production renders.
