Tutorials: Animation - Autodesk | 3ds Max Design, Engineering Animation Tutorials Here you can learn the fundamentals of creating animation with 3ds Max. Learning 3DS max isn't easy, it takes a lot of patience, determination and practice . We have a large collection of 3DS Max tutorials for beginners, intermediate. ds Max is a powerful 3D modeling, animation, effects, and rendering solu- tion that has been used By learning the package a little bit at a time, you'll discover .
Figure The Configure Paths dialog box specifies where to look for various resources.
Tip Under the Plug-Ins, Eternal Files, and XRefs tabs, you can add and delete additional paths that specify where Max looks to find plug-ins and so on.
The XRefs and External Files panels specify where to look for external resources and files. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to realign path entries. Selecting System Units One of the first tasks you need to complete before you can begin modeling is to set the system units. The system units have a direct impact on modeling and define the units that are represented by the coordinate values.
Units directly relate to parameters entered with the keyboard. For example, with the units set to meters, a sphere created with the radius parameter of 2 would be 4 meters across. Max supports several different measurement systems, including Metric and U.

Standard units. Working with a units system enables you to work with precision and accuracy using realistic values.
The U. Standard units system can be set to the default units of Feet or Inches. You can also select to work with fractional inches or decimal inches from the dropdown list.
Options include Metric, U. Standard, Custom, and Generic. Using Custom and Generic units To define a Custom units system, modify the fields under the Custom option, including a units label and its equivalence to known units. The final option is to use the default Generic units.
Generic units relate distances to each other, but the numbers themselves are irrelevant. You can also set lighting units to use American or International standards. This button opens the System Unit Scale dialog box, also shown in Figure This dialog box enables you to define the measurement system used by Max. A multiplier field allows you to alter the value of each unit. The Respect System Units in Files toggle presents a dialog box whenever a file with a different system units setting is encountered.
If this option is disabled, all new objects are automatically converted to the current units system. The Origin control helps you determine the accuracy of an object as it is moved away from the scene origin. If you know how far objects will be located from the origin, then entering that value tells you the Resulting Accuracy. You can use this feature to determine the accuracy of your parameters.
Objects farther from the origin have a lower accuracy. Caution Be cautious when working with objects that are positioned a long way from the scene origin. The farther an object is from the origin, the lower its accuracy and the less precisely you can move it.
Moving it closer to the origin should help resolve the problem. To access this utility, click the Utilities panel and then the More button. The Rescale World Units dialog box has a Scale Factor value, which is the value by which the scene or objects are increased or decreased.
If your world was created using millimeter units and you need to work in meters, then increasing by a Scale Factor of will set the world right. Setting Preferences The Preference Settings dialog box lets you configure Max so it works in a way that is most comfortable for you.
General preferences The first panel in the Preference Settings dialog box is for General settings, as shown in Figure Figure The General panel enables you to change the unit scale, among other options.
Undo Levels and the Reference Coordinate System The Scene Undo spinner sets the number of commands that can be kept in a buffer for undoing.
A smaller number frees up memory, but does not let you backtrack through your work. The default Undo Levels is The Reference Coordinate System setting makes all transform tools use the same coordinate system when the Constant option is enabled.
If disabled, each transform uses the coordinate system last selected. This saves valuable memory and still makes the plug-ins accessible. The Automatic Sub-Material Assignment option, when checked, enables materials to be dragged and dropped directly onto a subobject selection.
If you select the first option, then the Crossing method is used when the mouse is dragged from right to left and the Window method is used when the mouse is dragged from left to right.
In the default interface, this size is set to If you find yourself changing the brush size every time you use this tool, then you can alter its default size with this setting. The Preference Settings dialog box includes settings for changing the number of decimals displayed in spinners and the increment or decrement value for clicking an arrow. The Use Spinner Snap option enables the snap mode. You can also enable the snap mode using the Spinner Snap button on the main toolbar.
You can also change the values in the spinner by clicking the spinner and dragging up to increase the value or down to decrease it. The Wrap Cursor Near Spinner option keeps the cursor close to the spinner when you change values by dragging with the mouse, so you can drag the mouse continuously without worrying about hitting the top or bottom of the screen.
The newer method is more accurate but may impact smoothing groups. Interface Display settings The options in the UI Display section control additional aspects of the interface. The Enable Viewport Tooltips option can toggle tooltips on or off. The AutoPlay Preview File setting automatically plays Preview Files in the default media player when they are finished rendering.
For some actions, such as non-uniform scaling, Max displays a warning dialog box asking whether you are sure of the action. To disable these warnings, uncheck this option or you could check the Disable this Warning box in the dialog box. Actions with warnings include topology-dependence and collapsing the Modifier Stack. You can deselect Use Large Toolbar Buttons option, enabling the use of smaller toolbar buttons and icons that reclaims valuable screen real estate.
The Horizontal Text in Vertical Toolbars option fixes the problem of text buttons that take up too much space, especially when printed horizontally on a vertical toolbar. You can also specify a width for text buttons. Any text larger than this value is clipped off at the edges of the button.
The Flyout Time spinner adjusts the time the system waits before displaying flyout buttons. The Color Selection drop-down list lets you choose which color selector interface Max uses.
If ByObject is selected, then the options are enabled and you can set them for the object in the Properties dialog box, but if the ByLayer option is selected, then the settings are determined by the setting defined for all objects in the layer in the Layer Manager. The settings in the Preference Settings dialog box set the ByLayer option as the default for new objects and new lights.
You also have an option to propagate all unhide and unfreeze commands to the layer. Files panel preferences The Files panel holds the controls for backing up, archiving, and logging Max files. You can set files to be backed up, saved incrementally, or compressed when saved. The Viewports panel, shown in Figure , contains many options for controlling these viewports. Figure The Viewports panel contains several viewport parameter settings.
Viewport Parameter options The Use Dual Planes option enables a method designed to speed up viewport redraws. Objects close to the scene are included in a front plane, and objects farther back are included in a back plane. When this option is enabled, only the objects on the front plane are redrawn. In subobject mode, the default is to display vertices as small plus signs.
The Draw Links as Lines option shows all displayed links as lines that connect the two linked objects. When the Backface Cull on Object Creation option is enabled, the backside of an object in wireframe mode is not displayed. If disabled, you can see the wireframe lines that make up the backside of the object.
The Backface Cull option setting is determined when the object is created, so some objects in your scene may be backface culled and others may not be. Figure includes a sphere and a cube on the left that are backface culled and a sphere and cube on the right that are not. Figure Backface culling simplifies objects by hiding their backsides. The Attenuate Lights option causes objects farther back in a viewport to appear darker.
Attenuation is the property that causes lights to diminish over distance. In the Viewport Configuration dialog box, you can set Safe Regions, which are borders that the renderer includes.
The Update Background While Playing option causes viewport background bitmaps to be updated while an animation sequence plays. Viewport backgrounds can be filtered if the Filter Environment Background option is enabled, but this slows the update time. If this option is disabled, the background image appears aliased and pixelated. For quicker refresh times, enable the Low-Res Environment Background option. This reduces the resolution of the background image by half and resizes it to fill the viewport.
Enabling this option results in a blocky appearance, but the viewport updates much more quickly. Figure shows a background of San Francisco at normal resolution left and low-res right. Figure Background images can be set to be low-res to enable the viewports to update more quickly. Objects without scale, such as lights and cameras, appear in the scene according to the Non-Scaling Object Size value. Making this value large makes lights and camera objects very obvious.
Enabling ghosting helps you to produce better animations. Max offers several ghosting options. You can set whether a ghost appears before the current frame, after the current frame, or both before and after the current frame. You can set the total number of ghosting frames and how often they should appear. You can also set an option to show the frame numbers. You can also zoom in quickly using the scroll wheel with the Ctrl button held down, or more slowly with the Alt key held down.
You can select options to zoom about the mouse point in the Orthographic and Perspective viewports.

The Right Click Menu Over Selected Only option causes the quadmenus to appear only if you right-click on top of the selected object. This is a bad idea if you use the quadmenus frequently. Using Strokes The Stroke option enables another interface that lets you execute commands by dragging a pre-defined stroke in a viewport. With the Stroke option selected, close the Preference Settings dialog box and drag with the middle mouse button held down in one of the viewports. A simple dialog box identifies the stroke and executes the command associated with it.
If no command is associated, then a simple dialog box appears that lets you Continue do nothing or Define the stroke. Another way to work with strokes is to enable the Strokes Utility. This is done by selecting the Utility panel, clicking the More button, and selecting Strokes from the pop-up list of utilities. This utility makes a Draw Strokes button active.
