Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Rendering for Composites inside 3ds Max.
- If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you will have access to the entire set of exercise files used for the duration of this course. These are located in the Exercise Files folder, which as you can see here, has for convenience sake, been placed on my desktop. You can of course, feel free to place this folder and its accompanying files, anywhere you like. The are start scenes to go along with most of the movies in this course. These reside in sub-folders, located inside the 3ds Max Project Folder, with each sub-folder being named according to its corresponding chapter.
Now it isn't in any way essential that you make use of these files in order to follow along with, and benefit from this course, as you can, quite easily, make use of your own scenes should you want or need to. If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you won't have access to the exercise files themselves. But again, you will be able to quite happily work through this course using 3ds Max scene files of your own.
