The VMap daemon allows you to use any native 3ds max 3D map for an AfterBurn Noise effect.
For the fastest results, set the noise levels in the AfterBurn UI to 0.0. This way only the VMap will be computed while the computation of internal Noise will be skipped.
On - Enables or disables the daemon.
Map - Click to select the map that you want to use to create the noise for your AfterBurn volumetric effect.
Map Scale - This spinner controls the overall scale of the selected 3D map type. Instead of scaling a Map in the Material editor, you can scale with the Map Scale parameter.
Icon Size - Size of the icon (3ds max viewport only.) It does not have any influence on the final rendered effect.
