3DS Max 2017
Increase productivity by creating custom tools and sharing entertainment and design projects with greater speed. Below are just a few of the new features in this exciting new version.
Animation productivity (enhanced)
Trackview improvements, such as a new layout, that cater to animators stay persistent between 3ds Max sessions and activations. New tools to manipulate key values and times improve selecting and framing keys in the editor. In the Motion Panel, copy/paste/reset capabilities and fast selection of tracks in list controllers speed up usability.
Fast form hard surfaces
Updated Booleans are double precision, which gives more reliable results. Easily add and remove operands, and sort or create nested Booleans. The Bevel Profile Modifier now includes the same bevel controls found in the TextPlus tool, so artists can create their desired bevel or use the same presets found in TextPlus.
Co-developed with Chaos Group, the makers of V-Ray, the new Physical Camera has shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, exposure, and other options that simulate real-life camera settings. Enhanced controls and additional in-viewport feedback make creating photorealistic images and animations easier.
High DPI display support
Successfully run 3ds Max on modern HDPI monitors and laptops. 3ds Max now correctly applies Windows display scaling so the UI is more legible on high DPI displays. It also introduces new Qt-based skin that applies the modern appearance as defined in the new visual style guide, as well as modern multiscale icons.
