Welcome, and congratulations! You’ve just bought a ticket to the world of Autodesk ® 3ds Max Design ® . Hang on and get ready for the ride of a lifetime! With 3ds Max Design, you can create 3D places and characters, objects and subjects of any type. You can arrange them in settings and environments to build the scenes for your movie or game or visualization. You can animate the characters, set them in motion, make them speak, sing and dance, or kick and fight. And then you can shoot movies of the whole virtual thing.
You can use 3ds Max Design to visualize designs of real things that will actually be built, such as buildings and machines. The File Link feature of 3ds Max Design lets you base visualizations on designs created in AutoCAD ® or Autodesk Revit ® Architecture: When the design changes in these other applications, the revisions can be automatically updated in your 3ds Max Design scene. Add lighting and materials, then render to still image or movie formats.
