AutoDesk 3Ds Max 2011 training Course on DVD

Our instructor led video based training course will teach you about the features and functions of Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk 3DS Max Design. Follow the workflow of producing 3D animations, cover pre-production planning, apply materials and light scenes, animate cameras and objects, assemble short sequences, utilize Lighting Analysis tools in Design, and avoid long render times.
You will learn about integrated 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing that enable artists and designers to more quickly ramp up for production. The two versions share core technology and features, but offer differentiated experiences and specialized toolsets for game developers, visual effects artists, and graphic designers on the one hand, and architects, designers, engineers, and visualization specialists on the other.
Our step by step approach covers from the beginner topics to the advance elements. Whether you're a beginner looking for 3D basics or a full-fledged animator seeking creative new ways to catch everyone's attention, this training is for you.

Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 has the following new and enhanced features:

• Slate, a new node-based material editor that enables artists to more easily visualize and edit material component relationships

• Quicksilver hardware renderer, a new multithreaded rendering engine that uses both the central processing unit (CPU) and the graphics processing unit (GPU), and can achieve up to 10 times faster rendering than traditional techniques on common graphics cards

• Ability to view many 3ds Max texture maps and materials in the viewport to help develop and refine scenes in a higher-fidelity interactive display environment — without the constant need to re-render

• Extended Graphite modeling and Viewport Canvas toolsets for 3D and 2D painting of textures directly in the viewport, along with the ability to paint with object brushes to help create geometry within a scene
