Course Objective

Autodesk 3ds Max is best known for its modeling and rendering tools. In this course on Autodesk 3ds Max, you will go through various advanced stages of animation pipeline including pre-visualization, layout, cameras, modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering. After completing this course, you can implement the tools and techniques of Max for architectural visualization, product rendering, and creating game assets.

After completing this course, you will have an in-depth knowledge of the software and you will be able to apply the techniques that you have learned to create your own project. To summarize, learning 3ds Max course at CADCIM will enable students to discover how to model different objects using splines, polygons, subdivision surfaces, and freeform modeling. Also, you will learn how to construct hierarchies, add cameras and lights, animate using key frames, render interior and exterior scenes in different environments, and much more. At the end of the course, all students will be required to work on a project so that the faculty can assess their abilities.
