The Batch ProOptimizer utility lets you optimize multiple scene files at the same time. You can optimize 3ds Max Design (MAX) or Wavefront (OBJ) files.

The ProOptimizer feature is an optimization tool that helps you reduce the number of vertices (and so the number of faces) in an object while preserving the object’s appearance. Options let you maintain material, mapping, and vertex color information in the optimized model.

Optimizing objects can reduce a scene’s memory requirements, simplify modeling because objects have fewer faces, and improve the speed of viewport display and rendering time.

There are two ways to use ProOptimizer:

TipWith the Batch ProOptimizer, you can optimize meshes before you import them. This can save time. The Batch ProOptimizer is also a good choice if the original meshes are extremely dense.
