3D modeling, animation, and rendering software

Customize, collaborate, and create 3D content quickly with 3ds Max® 3D modeling, animation, and rendering software. It's packed with brand-new, user-requested features and enhancements for entertainment and design professionals.

Desktop Subscription gives you access to the latest updates and releases, 1-on-1 web support, priority support in the forums, flexible licensing, and more.

Features:

Whether you’re an artist or a designer, new motion graphics, animation, and simulation tools in Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2013 and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2014 software empower you to focus more energy on creative, rather than technical challenges, raising the quality of your work without compromising your ability to meet ever shorter deadlines.

Adobe After Effects Interoperability
If you use Adobe® After Effects® software, you’ll find a level of interoperability in Autodesk 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design 2013 that sets a higher standard for 2D/3D data exchange. The new Media Sync functionality provides two-way transfer of cameras, lights, null objects, plane objects/solids, footage, footage layering, blend modes, opacity, and effects; with it, you can iterate more effectively and reduce rework to complete projects in less time.

Render Pass System and Photoshop Interoperability
Scenes can now be more easily segmented for downstream compositing. Thanks to an entirely new render pass system in Autodesk 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design, you can now create render elements for Autodesk® Smoke® 2014 software, Adobe After Effects, Adobe® Photoshop software, or certain other image compositing applications more efficiently. A state recorder enables you to capture, edit, and save the current state, while a visual interface shows how compositing and render elements are wired together to create the final result. You can quickly set up and execute multiple render passes from a single file; individual passes can be modified without the need to re-render the whole scene, enhancing productivity.

ActiveShade Interactive iray Rendering
Experience an interactive creative process for finalizing renderings, with new ActiveShade support for the NVIDIA® iray® renderer. ActiveShade enables you to iterate more effectively by providing an interactive rendering session that constantly updates as changes are made to cameras, lighting, materials, and geometry. By shortening the feedback loop, you can more efficiently fine-tune your scene, making it faster and easier to achieve your intended look.

Slate Compositing Editor
Perform simple compositing operations directly within Autodesk 3ds Max or 3ds Max Design 2013 with the new Slate Compositing Editor. The schematic node-based interface enables you to easily wire together rendered layers and passes and combine them with compositing nodes (like blends and color corrections); the resulting composite can then be sent to Adobe After Effects or Adobe Photoshop for further refinement.

Nitrous Viewport Performance and Quality
The Nitrous accelerated graphics core has received a number of enhancements in Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 and 3ds Max Design 2013. You’ll find increased interactivity on large scenes, together with new support for image-based lighting, depth of field, and accelerated particle flow display. In addition, improved support for shadows in large scenes and improved workflows for interior scenes all extend the Nitrous functionality.

Enhanced Interoperability with AutoCAD and Revit
Facilities working with both Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 and Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2013 software can now take advantage of more efficient data exchange. Revit files (.RVT) can now be directly imported into 3ds Max Design 2013, enabling you to select a data view of choice to load from within the Revit file.
