Change viewport preferences and layouts.
- The layout of four viewports on the screen…is a pretty standard one in 3D,…but if you want to, you can customize 3ds Max…to display the viewports in a different pattern.…Maybe you want one large view…for maybe your camera or perspective view,…and three smaller views for orthographic panels.…Well, you can do that quite easily.…There is a toolbar for that which is called…the viewport layout tabs tool bar.…And earlier in the course I hid that tool bar.…
I'm going to unhide it now.…And to unhide a toolbar, you can right click…on the textured bar at the top or side…of any toolbar, including the command panel.…Right-click on that textured bar…and I will make the viewport layout tabs visible once again.…And that toolbar appears on the left side of…the interface by default…and it's got one preset in it, it's the quad four,…or four viewport layout.…And if we want to load up another layout,…just click on this triangle, this right-facing arrow.…
Create a new viewport layout tab.…And we have some standard layouts here.…So actually here's the one I want.…

Learn how to get around the 3ds Max interface and customize it to suit your preferences. Discover how to model different objects using splines, polygons, subdivision surfaces, and freeform sculpting. Then, learn to construct hierarchies, add cameras and lights, and animate with keyframes. Author Aaron F. Ross also takes an in-depth look at materials and texture mapping, as well as options for rendering engines such as Arnold and ART.
