3ds Max features advanced tools for realistic cinematography. Learn professional techniques of camera animation and special effects using the powerful 3D camera tools.
- [Aaron] Hi, my name is Aaron F. Ross, and I'd like to welcome you to this course on 3DS Max Cinematography. In this course, we focus on camera operation for visualization and motion pictures. Our main topics are rigging, animation, and special effects. Camera animation is an area of study that's often overlooked in 3D, but it's vital to the success of any movie or presentation. Throughout the course, you'll learn best practices, both technical and aesthetic, for visually appealing camera movement.
You'll see how CGI camera operation is informed by live-action photography, while transcending the limitations of the real world. The course also includes tips and tricks to enhance productivity in the interactive viewport. We conclude by exploring a few creative special effects such as isometric rendering, depth of field, and motion blur. It's time for lights, camera, action, in this course on 3DS Max Cinematography
