3ds Max® 2019 introduces new features that speed the creation of intricate 3D scenes, andfaster workflows that make it easier to collaborate on and execute complex projects.
Simpler project and pipeline management
- Structure project folders in a way that makes sense for your pipeline — and automatically switch between projects when opening a file from a different project.
- Custom data can be stored within a 3ds Max scene file, and accessed without loading it into 3ds Max.
- It’s now easier to share Alembic data between 3ds Max and other 3D tools, with support for UVs, layer names, material IDs, and vertex color.
Faster content creation and editing
- Extensive support for Open Shading Language maps, including over 100 included shaders.
- Advanced wood procedural textures, including maple, cherry, oak, pine, mahogany, and more.
- With a new Shape Boolean object, users can perform Boolean operations parametrically on geometry created around splines.
- Edit scenes directly in VR with 3ds Max Interactive 2019.
More efficient collaboration
- Sharing assets with reviewers and collaborators from 3ds Max is now simpler than ever: Assets can be shared to the online Autodesk Viewer directly from the 3ds Max interface, so reviewers don’t need to install extra software or sign in to view the content.
- Reviewers can view, markup, and take screenshots of content directly in-browser, and feedback can be reviewed from within 3ds Max.
