- [Chris] When it comes to creating great visuals for design visualization projects of all types, who doesn't want a few extra secret weapons they can put to use in any situation? Design visualization isn't always associated with special effects, but we're going to change that with this course. Hi, everyone, I'm Chris Murray. I've been working with 3ds Max and creating 3D visuals for all kinds of industries for years. Welcome to the world of special effects and special techniques for design visualization. In this course, we're going to be taking a look at some of the ways that you can do some quick and easy specialized effects and techniques that will add production value and interest to your design visualization projects.
