You will need to be very familiar with computers and learn and navigate comfortably in a complex software program. You will also need a computer capable of running such a program (most will work, but some may be slower than others). I will show you how and where to get the software and you will need to be able to install it and check the specifications of your computers to make sure they are suitable for the job. It will also be useful if you have access to photo editing software (for example, Photoshop or similar). We won't use it extensively in the course, but we do use it a bit, and if you want to take 3D graphics seriously, you will eventually need this. Knowing how to use the photo-editing software will also be useful, but it is not entirely necessary. I show you what to do, and I can also offer additional resources to help you learn it. Apart from that, feel free to come as a complete beginner to the 3d and 3ds Max graphics.
3ds Max is an industry leading 3D software that is widely used in several different fields of 3D, including but not limited to: video games, film, medical illustration, architectural illustration, animation, industrial design and conceptual art.
Regardless of the field you expect to enter with 3D graphics, this is the place to start. Here are some of the reasons:
In the course we will use 3ds Max. Anyone can access this software for free (limited time), and it is one of the most used 3d packages in all industries.
This course is very complete, as it covers all the main 3d concepts. At the end you will be able to create your own graphics.
We start slowly, and from the absolute beginning, so don't worry if you are new to this.
This is a project-based course. We won't get too caught up in all the theory, but we'll get right into it and start creating things.
The projects include techniques that will be useful in several different disciplines, so no matter what you're learning in 3D, there's something here for you.
All the course models and texture maps are available for download, so it's easy to keep up with the instructor.
Many additional free resources will be available to enhance your learning.
The videos are of high quality.
They are presented in high definition with clear sound, and also include key overlays to help the student understand clearly.
All default settings are used in 3ds Max, so the student's screen will look just like the instructor's, with no surprises or secret shortcuts! This course is very easy to follow.
All these things, and many more, make this course the premiere place to learn 3d graphics in Udemy. After joining this course, you will see that after about 7 hours of video and practice projects, you will have a firm command of 3d graphics in 3ds Max.
You will understand the theory behind 3d graphics as it applies to several different fields. You will also be able to comfortably navigate the software, a great achievement for such a powerful and complex software.
Most importantly, you will be able to confidently create your own projects, whether it's modeling, animation, game content creation, or whatever.
Most important notes about the class:
You will have access to the instructor, who is a professional in the practice of 3d, through the course forums. He will answer your questions directly and help you when necessary.
This course will be continuously updated with new content that will be free for current students
This course will be kept up to date and will continuously add additional information to keep you up to date with the latest software versions.
There is a 30-day money-back guarantee on this purchase. * Full refund for any reason.
Who this course is for :
This course is great for people who are new to 3d graphics, and/or 3ds Max. Regardless of the industry, you hope to enter with 3d, this class will be a good comprehensive introduction. We do projects that cover techniques from several different disciplines. This course is NOT for you if you are already an expert in modeling, lighting, materials and animation in 3ds Max. Students, aspiring game designers, architects, graphic artists, illustrators, etc. who have not done 3d graphics before, but want to increase their skills, please take this course.
