3ds Max Learning Channel
Summary: The official learning channel for Autodesk® 3ds Max® software, a comprehensive 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing solution for games, film, and motion graphics artists. The Autodesk® 3ds Max® Learning Channel provides tutorials of all levels to help you learn Autodesk® 3ds Max®.
In this movie, you adjust the UV clusters to minimize distortion and then you pack them into the UV area.
In this movie, you unwrap the texture coordinates on the low-poly column, in preparation to extracting normal maps.
In this movie, you extract low-poly models from their respective high-poly counterparts.
In this movie, you explore the high poly components that make the various parts of the column. You also learn about Floater objects, which are meant to provide a very efficient technique to projecting normal maps.
In this tutorial, you learn to use normal maps to provide detail without adding geometry. It's a technique used mostly for gaming but can also be applied to architectural visualization or in any situation where interactive playback is required.
In this tutorial, you learn to wire TextPlus entities to objects and scene parameters to read and update values such as time, transforms and animation controllers.
In this tutorial, you learn to animate TextPlus entities globally but also by separating paragraphs, lines, words and even individual characters. You do so by applying various animation presets to test the concept.
In this tutorial, you experiment with TextPlus, which replaces the old text tool in 3ds Max. you learn some basic functionality and about the ease of use that enables you to create quick and easy text elements.
In this tutorial, you learn about Animation Offset Controls and Animation Presets, which are tools that make it easy to induce an offset so that the same animation does not occur simultaneously on multiple objects.
In this tutorial, you learn to use the Voxel Solver, which gives you a much better start-up skin solution where most of the skinning is already properly established. From that point, you only need to add the finishing touches.
In this tutorial, you learn to link a Revit model to 3ds Max. You learn about the link presets that you can use to sort the imported models one way or another. You also learn how to update the 3ds Max scene once the model in Revit has been modified.
This movie shows you how to import and export Custom Startup Template in order to share them with others.
This movie shows you create a Startup Template. You'll set up a simple scene to always render an Ambient Occlusion pass, no matter what you throw at it. You'll then add a custom template to the existing sample files so you can start building your library.
This movie shows you how to manage Startup Templates, including how to duplicate and edit existing templates to create your own. It also shows you how to set a template you use regularly as a default template.
This movie highlights the use of Startup Templates, which were introduced in 3ds max 2015 Extension 2. Startup Templates are meant to help you set some basic parameters that would otherwise require time to manually adjust every time you start a new project
