# &__TITLE__; #

&__TOC__;

*Back in _2004_,* I played about with 3DS Max and <created (/art/tron-cubes-at-night)> a simple stack of cubes with a neat neon-reflective look. This simple scene took 2 hours to render at the then-standard resolution of 1024x768 on a pretty beefy 2.8 {GHz|gigahertz} Pentium 4 and 512 {MB|meg} RAM. Technology has moved on quite a bit!

I've updated my original work to support the plethora of high-resolutions available these days, and am releasing the source files for free use. There's a bunch of links below to JPEGs, and lossless PNG images in all sorts of sizes. If you've any requests for a specific size please contact <kroc@camendesign.com> or download and render the scene yourself using 3DS Max 2019 (or above?).

If you just want a wallpaper, opt for the JPG versions; _
on some systems large PNG files may cause system slow down!

## Make Your Own ## (#source-files)

For commercial use, printing, editing, remixing and any instance where you need to work with the highest quality source material possible, here is a 48-bit (16 bits per colour channel) PNG file at 8'192 x 8'192 resolution:

*	<TronCubes_1.1_8192x8192_8K_Fulldome.png (/&__HREF__;/output/TronCubes_1.1_8192x8192_8K_Fulldome.png)>, PNG 233 MB

You can also play with the original 3D scene in 3DS Max 2019, and above:

*	<3DS Max 2019 Scene and required textures (/&__HREF__;/TronCubes_2019.zip)>, ZIP 1.63 MB

Note: If 3DS Max cannot find the texture files, you may have to re-assign them in the Material Editor. I _cannot_ provide _any_ technical support relating to 3DS Max. If you download this file, you are 100% on your own! You will probably be asked to use either your system's gamma level, or the one in the file; it's probably best to go with the one in the file, I don't know why it does this but it probably has something to do with the file being transferred from 3DS Max 5.

NB: The images below are not resizes! _
_Every image here was rendered specifically for the target resolution._
