Key Learning

  • Learn how to minimize the size of mile-spanning aerial textures and scenes
  • Know when and when not to use xrefs to minimize file sizes
  • Learn how to implement vector maps to create large-scale, high-resolution textures without enormous file sizes
  • Learn how to render labels and callouts ultra fast, even on low-end machines

Description

Description

Roadway designs are complex, detailed, and huge, geographically speaking. This course will show methods for managing large-scale roadway projects in 3ds Max software with a focus on keeping file sizes as small as possible. We’ll show tips to help organize, build, and render animations that span many square miles without the need of a fleet of supercomputers. This session features 3ds Max. AIA Approved

Target Audience
