  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Add point cache to effectively work with large numbers of particles
  • Apply materials and render particle systems using the mental ray® renderer
  • Create particle flows to simulate fountains and other water features
  • Use space warps to create custom effects with particle flows

Description

Description

Many architectural structures incorporate a water feature as a prominent visual component of the structure. This exciting class explains how to implement the particle flow feature in Autodesk® 3ds Max® software for architectural use. This class takes you through creating water fountains, waterfalls, and other water features that architects like to use. We will cover creating particle flow networks to simulate water flow and using space warps to affect the motion of the particles. We will also cover the point cache and particle rendering.
