Download this please.

This is for users with XNALara and 3DS Max 2012+ and want to render professional looking scenes. You must have a basic knowledge of 3DS Max and completed my previous tutorial:

Here is a blank starter scene to start with. Please, all I ask if you credit me for this tutorial. I did the heavy lifting for you, and if you want other people to enjoy it please just credit me. If not, I will find you.
Please, no mature content of any kind using my tutorial. If I find it, I will remove the download. This is my prerogative, and you have been warned.

Update: I warned you guys about no mature content. Sorry, if you want it now you have to note me. You must have a deviantart account. This isn't optional. While 90% of you followed my simple request, the 10% that didn't spoiled it.

Your final renderings if done correctly should look like these:

If you have questions let me know. I won't bite your head off, I want to help otherwise I wouldn't have made this. Note me with your deviation, after you finish this tutorial. I'd love to see it.

Can't say I don't do things to help the community.
Happy Rendering!

thank u so much for this tutorial!Panda Bunny Neko Misc Emoji-07 (Applause) [V1]  so useful!Hug 
I may not apply this anytime yet but since I'm still learning and experimenting around with max basics, it's good to know especially for the realistic eyes..thx for this tutorial..

Glad you found it useful. :)

i'm a noob in 3d software. I currently use 3d max but whenever i try to import a model, in this case Kasumi from ninja gaiden 3 in obj format, i can't visualice the textures. And also the model is just wireframe. 

Any advice would be gold for me. 

I just received 3DS max from my college and just started this whole XNA thing. Unfortunately, the 10% made LoneWolf remove the "Starter Scene" download link. Darn, this sucks.
