About 3ds Max

3ds Max is a cloud-based animation software that provides businesses with tools to create, model and render 3D design visualizations. Professionals can create procedural open shading language (OSL) maps and utilize spline tools to animate geometrical designs.

3ds Max allows organizations to rebuild adjacent faces of 3D objects, automatically optimize the geometry of high-resolution models and apply various textures, colors or material finishes across designs. Editors can build animated characters, edit animation trajectories and include particle matters in models. Additionally, users can create and add realistic liquid behaviors or effects, including water, oil, lava and more.

Impresionante herramienta para renderizar

In my case I have used it more than anything as a complement to some architectural renderings that I do, but in the future I am very interested in using it again as a video game developer, I think it is a software that has much more potential than what I could use.

Pros

I am fascinated by the results that can be achieved with this software, it is very customizable down to the smallest detail, without a doubt I was quite surprised.

Cons

I do not know if there are things that I do not like, it is definitely a product that should be used with time, and with all the characteristics it has, many things I had to find how to do, it is not very user-friendly in the sense in which As soon as you use it, you can guess where to click for each thing you want to do, but I don't think it is something negative since that would remove many aspects of customization from the 3d models.

Reasons for Switching to 3ds Max

I switch to see what other options there are in similar softwares

Way too expensive for people

I wont use it again unless i have to, but its still a good software.

Pros

The amount of tutorials, and the high class support from the autodesk team. Its a very powerfull software.

Cons

Its way too expensive. I get its worth that to big companys, but you need to learn it somhow. I was lucky to have a student license, but otherwise you only have 30 day trail to learn it.
