Autodesk® 3ds Max® software delivers efficient new tools, accelerated performance, and streamlined workflows to help increase overall productivity for artists and designers working with the complex, high-resolution assets required by today’s demanding entertainment and design visualization projects.
With the ability to import, visualize, and render massive point cloud datasets; significantly enhanced viewport performance; and new scene management workflows, 3ds Max helps artists and designers handle greater complexity without slowing down. In addition, a more responsive ActiveShade interactive rendering workflow that now supports the NVIDIA® mental ray® renderer, and a new artist-friendly node-based visual shader editor for creating and previewing complex real-time shaders help increase efficiency for lighting, shading, and rendering tasks. Meanwhile, with new support for Python® scripting, 3ds Max offers a robust core toolset that is more easily extended and customized to meet each studio’s unique requirements.
