3D Modeling: Basics of 3Ds Max

Join Joel in this introductory course to learn the basics of 3D modeling in 3ds Max and create your very own character!

About this course

3D is used more and more often in the digital production industry. On this complete introduction to the popular software, 3ds Max, you'll learn how to generate 3D elements and even create your own character. 

What project are we going to develop?

On this course, we'll go through the very basics of the program. We'll work our way around the interface and get to know the essential tools and functions and how they work. 

We'll then take all we learned and apply it to create our very own 3D character, which we'll light and then render to get the final image. 

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone interested in starting out in 3D, by creating elements and characters. No previous knowledge or experience is necessary, as everything will be explained from scratch, so you can easily follow along. 

To enroll on this course you'll need 3ds Max installed.
