Autodesk 3ds Max, formerly 3D Studio and 3D Studio Max, is a professional 3D computer graphics program for making 3D animations, models, games and images. It is developed and produced by Autodesk Media and Entertainment. It has modeling capabilities and flexible plugin architecture and can be used on the Microsoft Windows platform. It is frequently used by video game developers, many TV commercial studios and architectural visualization studios. It is also used for movie effects and movie pre-visualization. For its modeling and animation tools, the latest version of 3ds Max also features shaders (such as ambient occlusion and subsurface scattering), dynamic simulation, particle systems, radiosity, normal map creation and rendering, global illumination, a customizable user interface, new icons, and its own scripting language.
Each chapter begins with concepts and learning objectives, and then moves into easy way supported by full–colour and real–world exercises. You will create actual animations as you learn a retro–Style Alarm clock and more while you conquer the techniques of Modeling, Rigging, Animating, Rendering, and Architectural Visualization. When you′re finished, you′ll also have a head start on preparing for the Autodesk 3DS MAX Certified Professional exam.
