Adding to our comprehensive coverage of major 3D design and modeling software, we have just gone live with a new Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 Training Video course. The 10.25-hour tutorial series will provide beginners with everything needed to get started, starting with a step by step walkthrough of the program’s basic interface options and tools and then progressing through common workflows, animation, special effects, and rendering.
All 91 lessons are narrated by 3D professional Joel Bradley, who has worked on 3D modeling, texturing and product visualization projects for clients around the world. Joel also has a passion for teaching, having previously created training material for 3DS Max and the V-Ray and Mental Ray rendering systems.
To show you a sample of topics tackled in this exciting new 3DS Max training course, we’ve got three free tutorials to get you started. As always, additional info and even more free videos can be found on the product page.
In this video, Joel gets hands-on with the all-powerful gizmo system that lets you quickly adjust and re-orient your objects in 3D space. He shows how to use shortcuts, and how to adjust settings seamlessly.
Once you’ve begun to use 3DS for animated scenes, motion blur is a fun and easy way to get a more immersive look.
mCloth provides a more sophisticated way of getting a realistic cloth appearance particularly when other objects are active in a scene.
