What’s new in 3ds Max for 2019?

3ds Max has powerful rendering and 3D modelling tools for creating professional-quality 3D animations, models and virtual reality visualisations.

Arnold for 3ds Max
The MAXtoA plug-in is integrated into 3ds Max, giving you access to the latest Arnold features.

Fluid simulation
Create realistic liquid behaviours directly in 3ds Max.

Open shading language
Create Open Shading Language (OSL) maps, from simple math nodes all the way up to fully procedural textures.

Shape Boolean object
Create parametric Boolean operations on 2 or more splines for open or closed shapes using the familiar UI from 3D Booleans.

Features

3D animation and dynamics

Create realistic liquid behaviours directly in 3ds Max.

Motion paths
Manipulate animations directly in the viewport and get direct feedback when making adjustments in your scene.

Character animation and rigging
Create procedural animation and character rigging with CAT, biped and crowd animation tools.

General animation tools
Use keyframe and procedural animation tools. View and edit animation trajectories directly in the viewport.

Max Creation Graph controllers
Author animation controllers, using a new generation of animation tools that you can create, modify, package and share.

Particle Flow effects
Create sophisticated particle effects such as water, fire, spray and snow.

Simple simulation data import
Animate simulation data in CFD, CSV or OpenVDB formats.

Geodesic Voxel and Heatmap skinning
Quickly and easily generate better skin weighting.

3D rendering

3ds Max Interactive
Access integrated tools for creating VR visualisations without leaving your 3ds Max workspace.

Arnold for 3ds Max
The MAXtoA plug-in is integrated into 3ds Max, giving you access to Arnold’s latest features.

Create and animate geometry in several intuitive ways with new and enhanced spline tools.

Data Channel Modifier
Extract information directly from a model, which you can use to help inform other types of modifications.

Blended Box Map
Morph visible seams by blending as many as six materials applied to an object.

Mesh and surface modelling
Efficiently create parametric and organic objects with polygon, subdivision surface and spline-based modelling features.

Hair and Fur modifier
Manipulate hair and fur directly in viewports with selection and styling tools, such as tools for cutting and brushing.

Open Shading Language support
Create OSL maps in the material editor from simple math nodes to procedural textures.

Smart. Flexible. Powerful. Autodesk Subscriptions.

Discover what Maintenance Subscription, Subscription, and Cloud Service Subscription can do for your budget, your people and your projects.

Subscription

Autodesk Subscription gives you access to Autodesk software—the same full version you get with a perpetual license—but with a flexible, pay-as-you-go approach for a software budget that’s easier to manage.

  • Pay-as-you-go access
  • Scalable licensing
  • Up-to-date software
  • Additional cloud and software services

Difference between Single-User and Multi-User

Single-user:
Contract administrators grant access to subscription for single-user products and associated services by assigning a named user to a product. Each named user is an individual with a unique Autodesk ID. The number of named users you can assign per product is determined by the total number of licenses available for that product.

Multi-user:
Supports a specific maximum number of users on computers connected to a network. Licenses are issued via Network License Manager (NLM) software utility to each user who starts an Autodesk product, up to the number of licenses purchased. Usually returns to NLM when a user closes all Autodesk products, which makes the license available to other users. NLM can be configured to allow a user to borrow a license and disconnect from the network until a specified return date—a borrowed license is only returned to NLM on or before the return date

Cloud Service Subscription

Now you can access your tools via the Internet without tying up your desktop or maintaining software. Get access to select Autodesk cloud services for creating, editing, analysing, and sharing work through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription model.

  • Convenient access
  • Simplified collaboration
  • Secure storage
  • Powerful computing
