In this video, learn the major parts of the interface including the viewports, the timeline, the outliner, and the various other parts of the 3ds Max interface.
- [Instructor] The 3ds Max interface … is fairly straightforward, we have a number of menu options … as well as windows that can either float … or be docked to the interface. … Now I'm going to show you the default standard interface, … and you can change that around however you want, … but with the default interface, … we have a menu along the top, and that has things … such as file, edit, a number of tools that we have, … as well as a bunch of other menu options. … Now on the top right hand corner of the interface, … we have a switcher here that allows us to switch … between different interfaces, so I have … the default interface here, and we can go … into a design interface, what's called … a modular mini interface, as well as back to default. … Now you can create your own interfaces as well … if you have a certain layout that you like, … you can save those. … Now below the main menu we have some icons … that allow you to quickly access common functions, … such as undo, linking, some selection options here. …
