Tips and Tricks for CEBAS PSD Manager




In this section, we will share some tips and tricks that can help you get the most out of CEBAS PSD Manager 32 X86 X64. These are some best practices and recommendations that can improve your workflow and results.


How to optimize your PSD file size and saving time




One of the challenges of exporting PSD files from 3ds Max is that they can be very large and take a long time to save. This can affect your disk space and performance. To avoid this problem, you can use some of these tips to optimize your PSD file size and saving time:


  • Use compression: CEBAS PSD Manager 32 X86 X64 allows you to choose between different compression methods for your PSD file: None, RLE (Run Length Encoding), ZIP (Lossless), or JPEG (Lossy). Compression can reduce your PSD file size significantly but it can also affect the quality and saving time of your PSD file. The best option depends on your needs and preferences. Generally speaking, RLE is faster than ZIP but ZIP is more efficient than RLE. JPEG is the smallest but also the lowest quality option.



  • Use bit depth: CEBAS PSD Manager 32 X86 X64 allows you to choose between different bit depths for your PSD file: 8-bit (256 colors), 16-bit (65K colors), or 32-bit (16M colors). Bit depth affects the color range and accuracy of your PSD file. Higher bit depths offer more colors and details but they also increase your PSD file size and saving time. The best option depends on your needs and preferences. Generally speaking, 8-bit is sufficient for most purposes but 16-bit or 32-bit may be required for high-end or HDR renderings.



  • Use alpha channel: CEBAS PSD Manager 32 X86 X64 allows you to choose whether to include an alpha channel in your PSD file or not. An alpha channel is a layer that contains transparency information for your rendering. It can be useful for compositing or masking purposes but it also increases your PSD file size and saving time. The best option depends on your needs and preferences. Generally speaking , you can use an alpha channel if you need transparency for your rendering but you can skip it if you don't.



  • Use presets: CEBAS PSD Manager 32 X86 X64 allows you to use presets for your PSD file settings and layers. Presets are predefined settings and layers that you can apply to your PSD file with one click. They can save you time and hassle by automating the process of setting up your PSD file. You can choose from the list of available presets or create your own presets and save them for future use.
