Autodesk 3ds Max is a 3D computer graphics software that can make professional grade 3D animations, models, games and images. It was earlier known as 3D Studio and 3D Studio Max. It is developed and produced by Autodesk Media and Entertainment.
It has several modeling and animation tools; like shaders which include ambient occlusion and subsurface scattering; dynamic simulation, particle systems, radiosity, normal map creation and rendering, global illumination; and many more. Among it tools is the scene explorer, which provides a hierarchical view of scene data and analysis.
3ds Max has enhanced viewport performance, and has perspective match tool, better particle system, vector map support and several other outstanding features. It has modeling capabilities and accepts plugins and can be used on the Microsoft Windows platform. It has a customizable user interface, new icons, and its own scripts or language.
3ds Max is extensively used across the Architectural, Engineering and Construction or AEC industry to perform Architectural 3D modeling. It can perform 3D Architectural rendering, Exterior & 3D Interior walk-through and 3D Architectural fly-through; besides 3D Mechanical modeling.
3ds Max is used by video game developers, TV commercial and broadcasting studios and interiors and architectural firms. In the film industry 3ds Max is extensively used for special effects and movie pre-visualization. It is used extensively in Media, Advertisement and Entertainment industry.
3ds Max software is the most used application by the architectural and the visualization animators, as it has awesome conceptual modeling tools which help create large-scale environment.
Among the many new tools in 3ds Max is crowd generation, which helps the artists in creating crowd of moving people. This feature is of immense help in 3D architectural visualization and animation. Particle animation helps in generating more realistic physical simulations.
Perspective matching enables convenient and easy fitting of any 3D models within any still-frame photographic background images. Vector map support helps users to load the vector graphics as the texture maps and then render these at dynamic resolutions so that these can be zoomed-in without loss of resolution.
2D pan and zoom features the use of moving the camera and having the 3D object in foreground and the background moving in a synchronous perspective.
There are also several other features that can be used for specific purpose and effect, such as global illumination, general map creation and 3D rendering, dynamic simulation and radiosity.
3ds Max has strong rendering capabilities and is interoperable with several other products which are used in the industry.
It saves time through its animation and mapping workflow tools. It can add animated objects or people and also make several kinds of fixes.
It integrates and works well with the other Autodesk products and is very affordable software for commercial and business use.
3ds Max has better UI and UX than Maya, and has certain tools and modifiers that make the task easy and fast. It has better modeling tools which are very useful for video games.
