Learn 3DS Max from beginner to advanced, while getting certified by Autodesk.

The 3DS Max Creative License package includes the entire curriculum for total immersion into 3D Animation and features a combination of 2 Autodesk courses at a discounted price. The package does not have a schedule of its own. Each class is scheduled separately, beginning with the 3DS Max Jumpstart and then taking the 3DS Max 201 Green Belt class.

Who is this course for?

This course is designed for people who want to create 3D graphics for print or animation, architectural practises, visualisation studios, production houses, advertising agencies or other such departments that work in large organisations.

Assumed Knowledge

Attendees require only a very general knowledge of 3D and its concepts, although a basic understanding of computer hardware and software is essential. Knowledge of other digital media packages is an advantage but not a necessity.

What you will learn

You’ll learn how to work in a production environment, understand the mechanics of 3DS Max, be able to create 3D models using a variety of techniques, work with materials to texture your models, understand how to light a scene, be able to create animations, stage a scene and understand cinematography, know how to create output for use in post production. You will be able to design 3D environments with animated walking characters with realistic lighting viewed from a moving camera.

You will also take Autodesk 3ds Max exams. Whatever your career path, our proven Autodesk software expertise will keep you ahead of the curve and help you develop a solid competitive advantage in today’s complex marketplace.

Autodesk certifications are a reliable validation of your skills and knowledge and can lead to accelerated professional development, improved productivity and enhanced credibility in your field. They can also help you succeed in your design career—providing benefits to both you and your employer
