Autodesk 3ds Max® professional 3D modeling, rendering, and animation software enables you to create expansive worlds and premium designs. 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. 3ds Max® professional 3D modeling, rendering, and animation software enables you to create expansive worlds and premium designs.
|Features[ edit ] MAXScript MAXScript is a built-in scripting language that can be used to automate repetitive tasks, 3ds max, combine existing functionality in new ways, develop new tools and user interfaces, and much. Plugin modules can be created entirely within MAXScript, 3ds max. Character Studio Character 3ds was a plugin which since version 4 of Max is now integrated in 3ds Max; it helps users to animate virtual max. The system works using a character rig or "Biped" skeleton which has stock settings that can be modified
3ds customized to fit the character meshes and animation needs, 3ds max.
These "Biped" objects have other useful features that help accelerate the production of walk max and movement paths, as well as secondary motion, 3ds max.
Scene Explorer Scene Explorer, a tool that provides a hierarchical view of scene data and analysis, facilitates working with more complex scenes, 3ds max. Scene Explorer has the ability to sort, filter, and search a scene by any object type or property including metadata.
Added in 3ds Max3ds max, it was the first component to
3ds. DWG import 3ds Max supports both import and linking of, 3ds max. Improved memory management in max Max enables larger scenes to be imported with multiple objects. General keyframing Two keying modes — set key and auto key — offer support for 3ds keyframing workflows.
Fast and intuitive controls for keyframing — 3ds cut, 3ds max, copy, and paste — let the user create animations with ease. Animation trajectories may be viewed and max directly in the viewport. Constrained animation Objects can be animated along curves with controls for alignment, banking, velocity, smoothness, and looping,
3ds max, and along 3ds with controls for alignment, 3ds max.
Weight path-controlled animation between multiple curves, 3ds max, and animate the
3ds. Objects can
3ds constrained to animate with other objects in many ways — including look at,
3ds max, orientation in 3ds coordinate spaces, and linking at different points in time.
These constraints also support animated weighting between more than one target, 3ds max. All resulting constrained
3ds can be collapsed into standard keyframes for further editing.
Skinning Either the Skin or 3ds modifier may be used to achieve precise control of skeletal deformationso the character deforms smoothly as joints are moved, 3ds max, even in the most challenging areas, 3ds as shoulders. Skin deformation can be
max using direct vertex weightsvolumes of vertices defined by envelopes, or. Capabilities such max weight tables, max weightsand saving
3ds loading of max offer easy editing and proximity-based transfer between models, providing the accuracy and flexibility needed for complicated characters.
3ds rigid bind skinning option is useful for animating low-polygon models or as
max diagnostic tool for regular skeleton animation. Additional modifiers, such as Skin Wrap and Skin Morph, max be used to drive meshes with other meshes and make targeted weighting adjustments in tricky areas, 3ds max. All animation tools — including expressions, scripts, 3ds max, list max, and wiring — can be used along with a max of utilities max to bones to build rigs of any structure max with custom controls, 3ds max, so animators see only the UI necessary to get their characters animated.
Four plug-in IK solvers ship max 3ds Max: history-independent solver, history-dependent solver, limb solver, and spline IK solver. These powerful solvers reduce 3ds time it takes to create high-quality character animation, 3ds max.
The history-independent solver delivers smooth blending between IK and FK animation and uses preferred angles 3ds give animators more control over the positioning
max. The history-dependent 3ds can solve within joint limits and is used for machine-like animation. IK limb is a lightweight two-bone solver, 3ds max, optimized for real-time interactivity, ideal for working with a character arm or leg, 3ds max.
Spline Max solver provides a flexible animation system with nodes that can be moved anywhere in 3D space,
3ds max. It max for efficient animation of skeletal max, such as a character's spine 3ds tail, and includes easy-to-use twist and 3ds controls, 3ds max.
Integrated Cloth solver Max addition to reactor's cloth modifier, 3ds max, 3ds Max software has an integrated cloth-simulation engine that enables the user to turn almost any 3D object into clothing and even build garments from scratch.
Collision solving is fast and 3ds even in complex simulations, 3ds max. Local simulation lets artists drape cloth in real time
max set up max initial clothing state before setting animation keys. Cloth simulations can be used in conjunction with other 3ds Max dynamic forces,
3ds max, such as Space Warps,
Multiple independent cloth systems can be animated with their own objects and forces. Cloth deformation data max be cached to the hard drive to allow for 3ds iterations and to improve playback performance.
Integration with Autodesk Vault Autodesk Vault plug-in, which ships with 3ds Max, 3ds users' 3ds Max assets in a single location, enabling them to automatically track files and manage work in 3ds. Users can easily and safely find, 3ds max, share, and reuse 3ds Max and design assets in a large-scale production
3ds visualization environment.
With MCG max user can create a new plug-in for 3ds Max in minutes by simply wiring together parameter nodes, computation 3ds, and output nodes.
3ds resulting graph can then be saved in an XML file, 3ds max.
Further information: List of 3ds made with Autodesk 3ds Max Many films have made use of 3ds Max, or previous versions of the program under previous names, max CGI animation, 3ds max, such as Avatar andwhich contain computer generated graphics from 3ds Max alongside live-action acting.
Mudbox was also used in the final texturing of the set and max in Avatar,
3ds max, with 3ds Max and Mudbox being closely related, 3ds max. Educational programs at secondary and tertiary level use 3ds Max in their courses on 3ds computer graphics and computer max
