Overview of 3D Studio Max: Building Complex Models

Conquering the vast array of tools available in 3D Studio Max is a challenge for even the most experienced user; to master them all at one time is even more difficult. By focusing on one major area at a time however, users can conquer a significant set of tools before moving onto the next. 3D Studio Max: Building Complex Models takes this approach by focusing on major areas of modeling. The in-depth coverage of this key aspect ensures that new and experienced users can successfully conquer all of Max's modeling tools.

All internal modeling options and numerous plug-ins are thoroughly covered through a variety of tutorials, including four very detailed projects that integrate an array of skills, tools, and techniques. The book details how to use the additional Materials Creation and Management tools including the Displacement Mapping Channel, the Digimation Texture Lab and MaxMatter plug-ins, just to name a few. Additionally, the widely-used Right Hemisphere’s Deep Paint 3D and Darkling Simulations Simbiont Max are covered in detail.

Whether you are a new Max user or a seasoned pro, the modeling techniques you learn here will help boost your skills to a new level, and prepare you to think globally about applying these techniques to new projects and other 3D applications.
