3D modeling, animation, and rendering software
3ds Max 3D modeling and rendering software helps you create massive worlds in games, stunning scenes for design visualization, and engaging virtual reality (VR) experiences.
3ds Max is also available as part of the new Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.
Manipulate animations directly in the viewport and get direct feedback when making adjustments in your scene.
Create procedural animation and character rigging with CAT, biped, and crowd animation tools.
Use keyframe and procedural animation tools. View and edit animation trajectories directly in the viewport.
Easy, powerful modeling
Create, shape, and define a range of environments and detailed characters.
3ds Max works with most major renderers—including Arnold,V-Ray, Iray, and mental ray—to help create striking scenes and visuals.
Realistic 3D animation
Build imaginative characters and realistic scenes in games and architecture.
Author animation controllers, using a new generation of animation tools that you can create, modify, package, and share.
Add life to creatures and simulate fluidic effects. Use animated deformers on particles and other geometry types.
Simulation data import
Animate simulation data in CFD, CSV, or OpenVDB formats.
