In this 3ds Max 2013 tutorial, we'll cover a wide range of topics in order to get you quickly up to speed using 3ds Max 2013. We will start out by exploring the user interface and finding our way around 3ds Max. Then we will start to create our own custom model, a VTOL aircraft, using a number of powerful modeling tools. We will apply materials and textures and then take it through the process of rigging and animation. We will finish up by adding particle effects to the scene and rendering out a nice result. Once you are finished with this tutorial, you will have exposure to a wide range of disciplines in 3ds Max and be able to start working on your own projects and building on the knowledge you have gained. Software required: 3ds Max 2013.
