3DS Max is the current, state of the art visualisation tool for architects (building and landscape) and designers of all types (interior, industrial, graphic, product, exhibition, jewellery). Learn how to create compelling, attractive photorealistic renders and animations of your building, interior, product or scene. You will explore the process involved in preparing, rendering and animating your 3D model to a high level of realism. Learn how to light, texture and render using the ART and Arnold renderers that come with 3DS Max.
This course focuses on architectural rendering and is also suitable for interior designers, industrial designers, graphic designers, exhibition designers, landscape architects and students seeking to acquire 3D computer visualisation skills.
Please note that the course is NOT suitable for storytellers or film makers, because it does not cover character animation, rigging, IK, Unwrap UVW, physics engines or other advanced character animation techniques.
Students MUST have prior experience with a 3D modelling program.
Please email the school directly via firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further if required.
The RMIT short course in Sketchup with Joseph Brabet is ideal to learn modelling before enrolling into the 3DS Max course
You will be able to create presentations of high quality and realism, resulting in either still renders or moving animations. You will be able to composite other photographic elements into your render such as skies and people.
Must have knowledge of a 3D modelling program such as Sketchup, Revit, AutoCAD, Rhino, ArchiCAD, Alias or Microstation in order to create a building or product that can be rendered in 3ds Max. This course depends on knowledge of 3D modelling concepts.
Participants will be awarded an RMIT Statement of Participation.
Completion of this course will not guarantee entry into an RMIT Program.

Well scripted material and pace. Sayaka
Joseph is a great tutor, very knowledgeable and pleasant. John
Good way to refresh skills and learn new aspects of the program, including rendering and animation. Well done Joe, very well taught! James
