Blended Box Map

Morph visible seams by simplifying the process of blending projected texture maps.

Material, texture, and color editor

Apply material finishes, change textures, and use vibrant colors to make your designs photorealistic

Data Channel modifier

Automate complex modeling operations, which dynamically update as you make changes.

Mesh and surface modeling

Create parametric and organic objects with polygon, subdivision surface, and spline-based modeling features

NEW | Baking to texture

Streamlined, intuitive, and fully scriptable texture baking experience

NEW | Weighted normals modifier

Built-in weighted normal calculator that can be directly applied to 3D models allowing you to create precise designs.

Animation and effects

3ds Max Fluids

Create realistic liquid behaviors such as water, oil, lava as well as replicate gravity and collisions effects.

Character animation and rigging tools

Create procedural animation and character rigging with CAT, biped, and crowd animation tools.

General animation tools

Use keyframe and procedural animation tools and also view and edit animation trajectories directly in the viewport

Motion Paths

Preview and adjust animation paths directly in the viewport.

Particle Flow effects

Create sophisticated particle effects such as water, fire, spray, and snow.

New plugins

Access hundreds of industry leading 3rd-party plugins from Autodesk extensive community.


Improved viewport quality

As part of OSL integration, you can display procedural maps created with OSL at 1:1 quality using Nitrous viewport.

Arnold for 3ds Max

Use Arnold GPU Renderer to view scene changes in real time, including lighting, materials, and camera.

Activeshade viewport
