Autodesk 3ds Max Design Suite 2009 DVD
Explore, validate, and communicate your ideas with Autodesk« 3ds Max« Design software?a comprehensive 3D modeling, animation, and rendering solution designed to support the way designers and visualization experts work: creatively, iteratively, and across multiple software applications.
Support for Sustainable Architectural Projects
One of the key technologies in Autodesk« 3ds Max« Design software is Exposure? technology, a toolset?exclusive to this version of the product?for simulating and analyzing sun, sky, and artificial lighting. Exposure assists architects in evaluating light intensity, part of the process of analyzing indoor environmental quality for requirements such as LEED 8.1 certification.
Precise Visual Feedback and Professional Final Renders
Reveal? rendering technology, a system that streamlines iterative workflows by giving you very precise control over what is rendered, be it your entire scene minus a specific object, one given object, or a specific region of the Framebuffer. The rendered image Framebuffer contains a simplified set of tools to quickly validate changes in a render, by optionally filtering out objects, regions, and/or processes in order to balance quality, speed, and completeness. The release also contains a new ProMaterials? library for mental ray« software, which gives you manufacturer-related materials for creating design and building surfaces.
Revit 2009 Interoperability?and More
With 3ds Max Design Autodesk takes a major leap forward with interoperability between 3ds Max Design and Revit« software. The software?s new FBX«-based Recognize? scene-loading technology lets you quickly and accurately import geometry, lights, materials, and cameras from your Revit scenes into 3ds Max Design. Interoperability has also been strengthened across the 3D line of Autodesk products through two new user interface and navigation toolsets?the ViewCube? and SteeringWheels? technologies.
Streamlined Mapping and Animation Workflows
Enjoy faster, more efficient workflows with the UV spline mapping tool, and enhanced Pelt and Relax functionality. Additionally, Biped now includes a more efficient workflow for rigging quadrupeds.
Autodesk« 3ds Max« Design software introduces powerful lighting simulation and analysis technology, rendering capabilities, high levels of interoperability with Revit« software, and more.
Key technologies include Exposure?, a toolset for simulating and analyzing sun, sky, and artificial lighting; Recognize?, scene loading technology that significantly improves 3ds Max Design and Revit workflows; Reveal?, iterative rendering technology for fast feedback and finished renderings; and ProMaterials? technology, a library of accurate manufacturer-related materials.
For full product details, refer to the detailed features.
Exposure is a key technology, exclusive to 3ds Max Design, for simulating and analyzing sun, sky, and artificial lighting in a 3D scene. Ideal for sustainable architecture projects, this powerful feature set has been designed to assist architects in evaluating light intensity in their designs. This can facilitate the evaluation of indoor environmental quality?required, for example, for LEED 8.1 certification. In addition to light metering functionality with graphical output, Exposure also features the popular Autodesk« 3ds Max software sun and sky models, a quick-settings dashboard interface and an intelligent user interface for accessing the various aspects of the software used in a light simulation, such as render settings, light settings, and material settings.
