Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013

5/04/2012

So Autodesk Announced the new 2013 Software Line-up! Yesterday I played with Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 which is included in: Autodesk AutoCAD Design Suite 2013. Autodesk Mudbox 2013 Also has some changes but not that critical like 3ds Max & 3ds Max Design 2013. Anyways back to 3ds Max Design 2013. The viewport has some Amazing new features and changes to! Like Tabbed Layouts, Clay Render, Depth Of Field (DOF) with NVIDIA metal ray / iray and of course more! But I personally thing those are my high priority changes!

The Left Screenshot: I was trying to get a DOF in a Render few days ago but always messed up like a way to much blur!
3ds Max & 3ds Max Design 2013 includes a new amazing feature that previews the DOF in the Nitrous Viewport!
This is a great time saver for me and I think the old 3ds Max & 3ds Max Design 2012 users also missed this feature!

The Right Screenshot: A cool new feature is Clay Option in the Shading Menu! Changes the model into a Clay look like in Zbrush. Not a very critical change but it can beĀ usefulĀ in near future or just for showcasing your model.

Tabbed Layouts are just easy to quickly switch the Viewport layouts. Like if you need to Render a scene you can chose your saved Tabbed Viewport Preset. You can create a lot of presets including rigging, animating and material editors in the Tabbed Presets.
