3ds Max is best known for its modeling and rendering tools. These strengths come into play in architecture, manufacturing, game development, and motion graphics. There are dozens of features and techniques to master, from modeling and texturing to lighting and rendering. This course covers 3ds Max 2023 from the ground up. Instructor Aaron F. Ross provides an overview of the entire package, as well as essential skills that 3D artists need to create professional assets. Aaron shows you how to get around the 3ds Max interface and customize it to suit your preferences. He demonstrates different modeling techniques: Splines, polygons, and subdivision surfaces. Aaron explains the processes of layout and camera operation, artificial and natural lighting, and application of materials and texture maps. He illustrates best practices for constructing hierarchies and animating with keyframes, and concludes with a survey of options for renderers bundled with 3ds Max, such as Arnold and Quicksilver.
Instructor’s Note:
3ds Max is the killer app for design visualization from Autodesk, but it also excels in media and entertainment. Hi, I’m Aaron F. Ross. And to help you get started in Max I’ve authored a video course, 3ds Max 2023 Essential Training. In this beginner course we’ll start with the basics of the interface, how to manipulate objects, and navigate in 3D space. For a strong overview of the modeling tools available, we’ll employ numerous techniques such as splines, polygons, and subdivision surfaces. To set the scene we’ll explore core techniques of camera and layout. We’ll see how to illuminate our world with photometric lights and natural daylight. No 3D rendering is complete without materials and textures. We’ll bring color to our world using the Slate Material Editor. From there we’ll progress to building hierarchies, simple key frame animation, and finish up by rendering an animation sequence to disc. 3ds Max is a powerful all purpose application for digital content creation. Let’s begin learning the essentials of 3ds Max 2023.
