Overview
3Ds Max is intended to help architects, designers, and visualization artists present their designs through 3D models, rendered stills, and animations. In the course, you will learn to use Autodesk 3Ds Max to create photo-realistic renderings and animations. You will examine the interface and workflow and learn to configure a project. You will also discover how to work with lighting, geometry imported from other applications, and how to perform rendering and animation

Course description
This qualification is geared towards learning Autodesk 3Ds Max (formerly 3D studio and 3D Studio Max) – a professional 3D computer graphics program for making 3D animations, models, games and images. It is developed and produced by Autodesk media and entertainment. It has modeling capabilities and a flexible plugin architecture and can be used on the Microsoft Windows platform. It is frequently used by video game developers, many TV commercials studio and architectural visualization studio. The program is also applied for movie effects and movie pre-visualization. For its modeling and animation tools, the latest version of 3Ds Max also features shaders (such as ambient occlusion and subsurface scattering), dynamic simulation, particle system, radiosity, normal map creation and rendering, global illumination, a customizable user interface, new icons and its own scripting language. A significant portion of your work as a designer will involve sketching and drawing throughout the design process. These visual explorations will not only help convey your ideas to others, but they will also help you see problems with a design and help you refine your ideas. 3D computer modeling and animation take design visualization beyond hand-drawn sketches and foam-core models, by allowing you to create a complete replica of your design and study it from any point of view in any lighting condition.
With 3Ds Max Design, you can apply color, texture, lighting, and other effects to see how variations of these elements affect your design. You can get a realistic look at your design to help you make better decisions as you progress through the design process
