3ds Max 2014 is here, and it comes with an impressive set of new and improved features. Join Adam Crespi in this course, as he walks you through the new functionality and utilities that make creating 3D models and animations easier and faster than ever. Learn how to create particle systems and simulations; add people to your scenes with Populate; place and align 3D objects in still images with Perspective Match; generate light from still images with the Skylight mode; and speed up rendering with the Unified Sampling mode in mental ray.
If you are a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files are organized in folders for each chapter. Each chapter folder has a separate folder for that exercise. Most of the exercises are stand-alone scenes. The exception is chapter two when we're working with Populate. For chapter two, there's a folder with the textures used by that scene for that exercise.
For example, 0201 Start uses the textures in the 0201 folder. For chapter three on perspective matching. There's a max scene and a background plate called corridor. That scene uses this corridor image in 0301. Finally for chapter four when we're looking at image based lighting, the 0402 start file uses the corridor image for both the background plate and the image-based lighting.
If you're a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. Now, let's get started with 3DS Max 2014 new features.
