3ds Max is an application that is used for 3D professional animation, modeling, and rendering. Formerly known as 3d Max Studio or 3D Studio, the application is used for making interactive games, 3D animations, and visual effects. 3Ds max plays a crucial role in designing 2D cross-section shapes of 3D models. It uses inverse kinematics to bring a character to life by linking various components of a character.
Before learning about 3d Max, you should have decent knowledge about the 3D environment.
However, even if you don’t have any pre-requisites, you can opt for a 3d max tutorial from here.
