Autodesk 3ds Max - Interior Design
3ds Max is a 3D animation, rendering and modeling software that lets design visualisation professionals, game designers and visual effects artists to maximize their design concepts and animation projects. The enhanced toolsets and environment provide rapid modeling, texturing, animation, visual effects, rendering, Cloth, Hair and Fur.
This course focus on the design visualisation toolsets of 3ds Max. At the end of this course you should be able to build any interior and exterior architectural models. You will learn how to efficiently construct interior furnishings and furnitures to better visualise, communicate and share your creative ideas. You will learn toolsets that will enable you to organise, place and light your designs. In addition you will learn how to customise and use materials to add realism to your renders. Lastly, you will also learn how to create walkbys and flybys to showcase your visualisations.

3D StudioMax more or less stands alone in its capacities as a 3D modeller and visualizer. But even so powerful a program needs some nudging along the way.
Top of the list of complementary software is, again, Adobe Photoshop; used for painting or creating textures and material maps, but Fractal Design Painter and Paint Shop Pro arguably do just as well.
Drawing in 3D StudioMax has never been a problem to seasoned users, although newcomers might find the spline-based concept disconcerting. Here Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia FreeHand come to the rescue, in their ability to export vector shapes which turn into splines when imported into Max.
Figures and characters are easily generated in Poser, with Character Studio offering additional help. And Max isnt Maxwithout some help from AutoCAD. 2D drawings and shapes import seamlessly into Max, as do shape objects from LightWave (and other related programs), to become exciting 3-dimensional visuals.
