The New Features Of Autodesk 3DS Max 2011 Video Part 2

Enjoy the Best in 3D Software for a good price It's the Autodesk 3ds Max 2011!

The latest software for 3D modeling, animation, compositing and rendering is Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 - a great new tool for anyone who needs 3D capability, including game developers, visual effects artists, graphic designers and others working on film and television.

This is a powerful piece of equipment, loaded with one of the most complete modeling toolsets of any software package. You'll be able to design and build both parametric and organic objects with modeling features based on polygon, spline and NURBS. The ProOptimizer technology gives you very precise control of the number of points contained in an object and you'll be able to enjoy over 100 advanced polygonal modeling and freeform design tools. You'll be able to reduce an object's complexity by up to 75% and still maintain the amazing details.

Even while you're tracking the assets within a scene, you'll be able to access an astonishing array of texture painting, layering and mapping operations. Among these outstanding functions are UV stretching, mirroring, Remove Distortion, decal placement, blurring, tiling and spline mapping. You can create and edit shading hierarchies, from the most simple to the very complex, with the Slate material editor.

Or if you need to leverage your procedural animation and rigging, you can tap into biped, crowd animation and the Character Animation Toolkit (CAT). You can create a smoother and more natural skeleton deformation in a moving skeleton using the CAT muscle and skin modifier.

The program also includes several tools for creating certain effects and dynamics like hair, fur, or cloth as well as other strand-derived effects like grass (precise control of of styling and animation is possible); you can also have excellent control over event-driven particle effects such as water, spray, fire or snow, which can be carefully controlled using scripts, expressions and direct manipulators.

You'll be amazed at the amazingly realistic images you'll be able to generate with this excellent program, and you'll be able to do so in far less time. If you need to generate high-fidelity pre-visualizations and animatics, you just click on the Quicksilver renderer. You can take advantage of inactive processors with another rendering engine, the mental ray, which allows you to quickly build advanced custom shaders and advanced photorealistic lighting.

The program supports more than 30 well-known 2D and 3D formats such as FLT, SKP, AI, DWG, DXF, OBJ and IPT; or you can use the FBX format to exchange data with some of the other popular 3D programs.

This compositor will let you key, track, camera map, raster, vector paint, color correct and motion blur, build depth of field and other great features and all of this in a high performance, high-dynamic range.

There are plenty of great new features as well, like the user interface customization, save to previous releases, Viewport display of materials, new tools that expand the Graphite modeling and Viewport canvas capabilities, and the Slate material editor which lets you design and edit complex material networks.

The trial version is available for testing for 30 days. You just need to go to the official Autodesk website ( Or you can purchase it via amazon here: Autodesk 3ds Max 2011: 3D Animation/Designing Software
