Product Brochure (pdf - 342Kb)
With each new release, Autodesk software solutions become more intuitive and user friendly, while gaining functionality and a broader tool set. The following videos introduce the new features and functionality of Autodesk® 3ds Max® software.
MappingThe new Spline Mapping tool can map otherwise difficult geometry by using splines to drive the UV generation. In this video, animators see how they can map twisted roads, arches, and characters’ limbs in minutes. In addition, improved Relax and Pelt workflows streamline UVW unwrapping, enabling animators to achieve desired results in fewer steps.
LightingPowerful photometric lights make realistic light creation a snap. Templates, distribution, and shapes are all available in a single light object. This video demonstrates how the viewport can display IES lights and their web distribution. It also highlights the daylight system sky, which now supports new sky models. Learn about how support for weather data files can accurately re-create weather and lighting conditions on specific dates or over a period of time.
