In this video, learn how 3ds Max projects are set up and learn how to configure 3ds Max to use the project supplied in the exercise files.
- [Instructor] 3ds Max is Autodesk's other 3D application. … And like Maya it can be used … for a lot of different applications. … It's primarily used in design … but you can also use it for gaming … as well as feature films, visual effects, and so on. … Now when working with files, 3ds Max is project-based. … So, if we go to our ExerciseFiles folder, … you'll see we have a 3dsMax folder. … Inside that folder are a number of subdirectories … and this allows us to organize our project … so that way we can move them from computer to computer. … Now all of your 3ds Max files … will be found in this scenes folder. … Now before we get started with 3ds Max, … we do need to set that project. … So we go into File, Project, … Set Active Project. … And then all we have to do … is go to that ExerciseFiles folder … and click on 3dsMax and hit Select Folder. … Now once we have that selected, … we can load whatever file we want. … So if we go to File, Open, … you'll see that we have our scenes folder here …
