Create stunning real-time design visualizations with Autodesk Stingray and 3ds Max. Learn how to enhance, light, shade, and animate 3D assets and interactive environments in Stingray.
- [Chris] Hi everyone, Chris Murray here. Welcome to the world of Stingray. Game engines aren't just for games anymore. In this course, we'll be wading into the water with the Stingray game engine, and discussing how you can use it to do some really amazing things for design visualization. We'll get things rolling by dissecting what goes into a Stingray project. Then we'll take a look at creating assets for Stingray, specifically some do's and don'ts in 3ds Max. Next, we'll bring assets into the Stingray environment and get things looking great.
We'll explore some animation in Stingray and then finish everything off with some experimentation in the Flow Node Editor and deployment options. So refill your bevi, double click that Stingray launcher icon, and let's get real-time.
