3D Studio Max is a Windows application which provides designers with high-level animation capabilities. This guide gives a visual tour of the program's features and gives designers practical and easy-to-use tips, tricks, and techniques to improve their animation. It shows how to add 3D modelling and animation to Web pages. It features tips and techniques for simulating materials like metals, glass, wood, liquid, skin, animated textures, smoke, fog, clouds, and reflections. Readers are also given step-by-step tips for specific areas of animation, including bouncing balls, object tracking, cartoons, character animation, and morphing.
