software brings a fresh approach to 3D animation for motion graphics, visual effects, design visualization, and game development. With the
innovative new Populate feature set for automatic crowd generation, a significantly augmented Particle Flow toolset, and a performance-enhanced view
port that now supports Microsoft DirectX
shaders, 3ds Max 2018
embraces concepts and technology required by today's modern pipelines. And, with new
Perspective Match and Vector Map tools that cross the 2D/3D divide, 3ds Max 2018
provides new ways of working that can help artists extend their creative
Why 3ds Max?
- Easy, Powerful Modeling - Create, shape, and define a range of environments and detailed characters.
- High-end Rendering - 3ds Max works with most major renderers—including Arnold, V-Ray, Iray, and mental ray—to help
create striking scenes and visuals.
- Realistic 3D Animation - Build imaginative characters and realistic scenes in games and architecture.
- Flexible Interoperability - Revit, Inventor, Fusion 360, and Stingray, as well as SketchUp, Unity, and Unreal all work with 3ds
- 3D Animation and Dynamics
- Motion Paths - Manipulate animations directly in the viewport and get direct feedback when making adjustments in your scene.
- Character Animation and Rigging Tools - Create procedural animation and character rigging with CAT, biped, and crowd animation tools.
- General Animation Tools - Use keyframe and procedural animation tools. View and edit animation trajectories directly in the viewport.
- Max Creation Graph Controllers - Author animation controllers, using a new generation of animation tools that you can create, modify,
package, and share.
- Animated Deformers - Add life to creatures and simulate fluidic effects. Use animated deformers on particles and other geometry types.
- Simple Simulation Data Import - Animate simulation data in CFD, CSV, or OpenVDB formats.
- Geodesic Voxel and Heatmap Skinning - Quickly and easily generate better skin weighting.
- 3D Rendering
