Kinetix's manuals and competitors' "bible" books for 3D Studio MAX are notoriously difficult to understand. 3D Studio MAX X In Depth guides readers through comprehensible lessons that build their special-effects skills for moviemaking. 3D Studio MAX X In Depth is easy to use and understand, and includes a stellar 32-page Color Studio that showcases the results of the sophisticated models and characters readers can create through the projects in the book, unlike competitors' books that are complex and offer no color.

3D Studio MAX is a highly professional tool that has been used to create special effects in movies (Lost in Space and Deep Impact), TV (Ally McBeal), and games (Tomb Raider I and II), and 3D Studio MAX X In Depth teaches the motivated reader to think and work like a professional.

  • Third-party and custom MAX plug-ins
  • Offers a collection of powerful MAX scripts to both teach the methods and value of this technology and to provide a set of helpful tools
