3D Studio Max Online Training



    3D Studio Max 9 training course brings your 3D film effects to the big screen. Create realistic characters for a top-selling game. Create rich and complex design visualization. 3ds Max offers operations for creative texture and planar mapping, including tiling, mirroring, decals, angle, rotate, blur, UV stretching, and relaxation Remove Distortion Preserve UV and UV template image export. The texture workflow includes the ability to combine an unlimited number of textures, a material/map browser with support for drag-and-drop assignment, and hierarchies with thumbnails. UV workflow features include Pelt mapping, which defines custom seams and enables users to unfold UVs according to those seams copy/paste materials, maps and colors and access to quick mapping types (box, cylindrical, spherical).
