Autodesk 3ds Max 2017 is a 3D animation, modeling, simulation, and rendering software for creating feature films, short films, commercials, games, architecture, and more. 3ds Max features a comprehensive toolset that helps you create 3D content, including characters and entire scenes. 3ds Max is also useful for architectural visualization.

This is a one-year subscription to the standard, standalone version of 3ds Max 2017 with Basic Support. Basic Support includes free software updates and web-based tech support with a 1-2 day turn-around time. This subscription version can be accessed by one user from up to three different computers, but only one at a time.

3D Animation
Animation Productivity (Enhanced)
Trackview improvements, such as a new layout, that cater to animators stay persistent between 3ds Max sessions and activations. New tools to manipulate key values and times improve selecting and framing keys in the editor. In the Motion Panel, copy/paste/reset capabilities and fast selection of tracks in list controllers speed up usability.

Text Tool (Enhanced)
Add data-driven information to your scenes. Edit paragraphs, words, or individual letters. 3ds Max 2017 also retains information such as font theme, font style, and glyphs when you copy text from Microsoft Word documents, easing your 2D-to-3D workflow. You can now apply textures, animations, and effects to text as an object that automatically updates if you change the content of the text. In addition, when you search for a font, the font style is displayed. A powerful preset system includes bevel and animation presets. Add presets to your Favorites lists or share them with other users. Custom value strings help you display custom information text, such as the radius of a sphere or the speed of a vehicle in your scene.

Geodesic Voxel and Heatmap Skinning (New)
Generate better skin weighting at a fraction of the time. Run Geodesic Voxel and Heatmap skinning outside of the bind pose, and even on selected areas, to refine your weighting in particular spots more easily. Geodesic Voxel Skinning can handle complex geometry that is not watertight and can contain non-manifold or overlapping components, as is frequently the case with real-world production meshes.
Max Creation Graph Animation Controllers (New)
Author animation controllers in MCG, using a new generation of animation tools that you can create and modify, package, and share. Includes 3 new MCG-based controllers: LookAt Constraint, Ray to Surface Transform Constraint, and Rotation Spring Controller. Create physically based simulation controllers with MCG and the Bullet Physics engine sample integration.

Camera Sequencer
Tell stories with high-quality animation.

Dual Quaternion Skinning
Create better skinned characters in less time.

Populate Crowd Animation
Generate believable human motion.

Populate Enhancements
Create more convincing crowds.

Character Animation and Rigging Tools
Create believable characters with realistic motion.

General Animation Tools
Work with keyframe, Dopesheet, and procedural tools.

Animated Deformers
Add life to creatures and simulate fluidic effects.
3D Modeling and Texturing
Fast Form Hard Surfaces (New)
Updated Booleans are double precision, which gives more reliable results. Easily add and remove operands, and sort or create nested Booleans. The Bevel Profile Modifier now includes the same bevel controls found in the TextPlus tool, so artists can create their desired bevel or use the same presets found in TextPlus.

UV Mapping (Enhanced)
Performance improvements speed UV navigation and editing 5-10x. Addressing key user requests, texture creation now has better performance and visual feedback, and more efficient workflows. More consistent tool sets simplify the editing and predicable operation, eliminating steps.

Object Tool (Enhanced)
Enhancements to selecting and manipulating objects make modeling, animating, and other tasks more efficient and creative. Artists can now use Working Pivot without having to go to the hierarchy panel by "Pinning Working Pivot." Local align, a new axis align method, tries to line up each axis for a more predictable result when applying different transforms to a sub-object selection. It can be found in the Reference Coordinate System dropdown on the main toolbar. A single hotkey opens a mode to select which sub-object you want. The added ability to do point-to-point selections by holding the Shift key. If nonadjacent elements are selected, point-to-point selection with a preview enables you to see exactly what will be selected.

Text and Shape Map (New)
Create decals and text-based graphics using still or animated 2D objects. By removing the baking step, elements can remain interactive and linked to the original objects. Font changes, content revisions, and shape updates are reflected automatically with this new functionality. In addition, you do not have to leave the 3ds Max project to use objects as a mask to create custom decals and graphics.

Blended Box Map (New)
Blend up to 6 different materials.

Data Channel Modifier (New)
Extract information directly from a model.

Autodesk Raytracer Renderer - ART (New)
The new ART renderer is a fast, physically-based renderer, ideal for design visualization workflows used in Revit, Inventor, Fusion 360, and other Autodesk applications. With efficient settings, video card agnostic CPU operation, and excellent use of image-based lighting, ART provides quick, photorealistic results for most industrial, product, and architectural exterior rendering. Support for IES and photometric lights from Revit enable you to create highly accurate images of architectural scenes.
