Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 is a powerful tool for realistic 3D design being marketed as a software for modeling, rendering, animation and visualization of graphics into motion. It is a stunning visualization tool for gaming and entertainment industry development allowing for detailed creation of objects, characters, tools and machinery and worlds.
New features in Autodesk 3ds Max 2016
2016 is not the latest release available for pro designers; however it offers a powerful set of features and tools to meet the highest standards of design quality. The software offers over 72 powerful tools and instruments to create realistic objects in a digital world:
3D animation – the software has become even faster and more responsive to the actions of a user. You can add text objects to the scenes which will also be 3D and animated.
Camera sequencing – this option allows you to choose the camera perspective and set the sequence of its change to create even more professional and breathtaking animations.
Experience choice – the 2016 version simplifies the process of designing and allows you to choose your experience first. You can choose between classic and design. Classic mode is perfect for creation of 3D animated characters and objects while design mode is specifically developed for rendering of massive environments inheriting realistic lights and shadowing. This allows offering you a great user experience and accurately presetting panels of tools each of which will contain an optimum set of instruments based on your goal.
Templates – the Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 great release offers full libraries of templates to use creating specific objects. Using template sufficiently saves time for doing basic works and actions.
Improved 3D rendering allows for creation of more precise and accurate architectural scenes.
Iray and mental ray have now been enhanced for better rendering of the photorealistic images and characters.
Stereo camera allows for creation of engaging 3D content.
Moreover the Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 version has got many tools for dynamic realistic animation and motion. For example, particle flow effects allow for creation of realistic and sophisticated particle simulation.
Hair and fur effects will make every digital 3D creature look more realistically and naturally.
Lighting exposure option will allow to create the most realistic lightening of every scene.
But the greatest enhancement of the Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 is still user interface. The menus and the overall architecture of the software have been simplified and reconstructed. Most features are now available in a single click.
System requirements of Autodesk 3ds Max 2016
As the Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 version is one of the latest ones, the software requires much force from your PC. To run seamlessly you will need:
• Windows 7/8 or later
• 64-bit Intel or Athlon AMD processor
• 4Gb of RAM (while 8Gb is recommended)
• 6Gb of free space on hard disk for installation. Mind that to operate or unpack additional libraries the software will need additional space.
• Three button mouse
The 2017 release has not got as much improvements in performance to pay for it. If you need a modern stable version of the powerful 3D design software then Autodesk 3ds Max 2016 is right for you.
