Autodesk 3ds Max: Introduction
3ds Max, an industry standard CGI software, provides powerful, integrated 3D modelling, animation, and rendering tools which enable you to focus your energy on creative, rather than technical challenges.
This course runs over five days and has been designed for professional architects, artists, designers and photographers with an interest in generating high quality CGI scenes using 3ds Max. It is a practical introduction that will get you up and running with the essential elements required for 3D games, architectural visualisation and film. Taught through a series of demonstrations and exercises, this practical skills-based course will introduce you to multiple modelling processes, lighting, texturing, and animation techniques.
