Autodesk 3ds Max  Tutorial - Easiest and fun way to develop 3d Animated Character in 3ds Max and be expert in character animation and 3d character design without plugin & scripting in max 3ds. Learn 3D Modelling in 3ds max for beginners where modeling process is defined for amateurs to make it easy to comprehend. Autodesk 3ds max is the best Autodesk software for 3d modelling and is also an all purpose 3d application. When we watch 3d tutorials for beginners then this 3ds max tutorial becomes the bench mark for the 3ds max students.

You might find 3d character creator online but making your own 3d model and preparing it for animation in Character animation tool kit is a amazing experience to make your own customized character.

Please suggest what kind of updates you want in this course so we can update it as per your requirements to make the course even more anticipating and interesting, I hope you will love the current updates. And you will find this more easier.

In this Part-I you will go through the complete 3d Modeling and Rigging Guide for beginners. This on is 3ds Max Tutorials with ease.

In this course I am going to cover all the steps from Sketch to 3d modelling, UV Unwrapping, Texturing, Rigging, Skinning, Facial Expression And Facial Controls to Animate them, and  Procedural Animation readily available in 3ds max ‘Character Animation Toolkit’, Learn 3ds Max + V-Ray. Character Animation had never been that easy. The best part to clear your curiosity the how to make animated short film or any making animated movie for school, collage or university project. You will clearly get know that how Disney makes animated films and how Pixar makes animated film and you will be able to dream for becoming and indie director of animated film. You will find 3d Character Animation is more easier than 2d animation because this process will give you complete control on the character.

If you want to produce an animated film with character animation, documentary in 3ds max or intending to make animated Advertisement this will be a great help to start with, more over architectural visualisation because there is an easy short cut tutorial in the Part-II where you can lean V-Ray too which is also a genre that can turn into high value and 3ds Max has the topnotch quality when V-ray is used for rendering 3d animation.

At the completion of the course in 3ds Max you will be able to develop your very own tailored 3d Animated Characters in 3ds max for your clients, university or school projects, enhance your portfolio, get more views on Youtube making engaging content. 3dsmax character animation toolkit is the best solution ever built to make the character animation process intuitive and easy thank blender 2.9 and Maya 202.

3ds max is a very comprehensive application to learn character animation, that I believe is even more mature than other 3d tools because 3ds max has simple and intuitive approach to manage the project and assets to produce high quality content with very least botheration, moreover 3ds max is used in almost all the genre of design, animation and product i;e in motion graphics, game industry, visual art, graphic design, character animation, tv commercials, promotional content, public service messages, architectural visualization and much more. the tutorial in max 3ds will help you create best content.

While working on 3ds max for character animation, it is so fun to work when you know the right hot keys and we have incorporated all the short cut keys in the videos popping up on the screen while we use those keys in 3ds max on the key board, without distracting the 3ds max interface and main 3ds max UI elements.

Watch the course till end and enjoy the beauty, simplicity and strength of 3ds max and V-Ray. 3d Character Animation is so satisfying job so you will love the get hand on to learn Character Animation and be able to animate your own short film. Making Animated film sounds intimidating but as a matter of fact if you follow along you will get know that making animated film is actually not an impossible process for an individual to go for.

3ds max offers easy solution for Character Rigging and we manage to give provide you easy to understand 3dsmax 3d character animation course in which you will have a proper comprehension about 3d Character Modelling, Rigging, Skinning, UVW unwrap, Character Animation and tips and trick to make your workflow even batter and what can be even batter if its all done in Autodesk software.

Being the pioneer in 3d technology 3ds max has developed a mature and easy learning curve that will not consume much of your time and you will be able to understand in depth knowledge with least effort  but with great results. When we just want to know about Character Animation there is stuff which makes the process complicated but as a matter of fact 3ds max has changes the Character Animation para dime and made the animation process easy and fast and though there is a reputation of Autodesk Maya for character animation and Blender is also evolving but 3ds max has taken the character animation to the next level.

3d animation is not a tedious process if done with proper comprehension and sound knowledge that how it should be done, it might take some time to master but the character animation will become norm and you will not hesitate to animate any 3d character animation and you will do 3d animation with ease and comfort.

Lets buckle up and get ready to start your own character animation project and produce the next blockbuster and express your skills in 3d animation, shine in the filed of 3d & Animation.

All the best.

Topology is the layout of a model, it defines how the vertices and edges are situated to make the mesh surface. Good topology is important if you want smooth frame rates (real time) and good deformation in both realtime animation and pre-rendered output.

Face Topology and Edge Loops

Modeling Human Head
Modeling 3d Human head is considered one of the complicated things to do may be because of the fact that the structure and form of a human face is so familiar to everyone that even a small fault in the 3D model is easy to notice.

I have tried to make the process as simple as possible in the video tutorial. This is the basic head modeling using editpoly and playing with polygons, after the finished head we apply turbosmooth to see the final resolution of the mesh. Tubosmooth add more subdivisions and make s the mesh high resolution making the surface smooth and beautiful.

For realistic head modelling there is a amazing article in the external resources below, though our process is way more simpler and for the most simplistic character but going through these techniques will give you firm idea to follow the edge flow, topology as well as anatomy where required.

Modeling Limbs (Arms, Leg, tail etc) of the Character

Hair modelling and animation has long been a major obstacle in computer graphics and most recent techniques often leave animators and modellers with little control over the final shape of the character’s hairdo. Similarly, when simulating the dynamic properties of hair, control is taken away from the animator and handed over to a set of physics equations. Cartoon hair is often long and flowing and does not always obey the laws of physics. This lack of control inhibits the whole style of the animation and constrains animators’ artistic expressions for characters.

As it would be impractical to animate every strand of hair on a character’s head, or even clumps of hair, the solution proposed was to use a NURBS volume to define the shape and motion of the hair. This would give the modellers and animators control over the final overall shape of the hairstyle without them having to worry about each individual strand of hair.

Whereas the Disney system attempts to fill the volume with realistic looking hair, this paper presents a system that fills it with clumps of hair geometry and renders it non-photo realistically. This will not only drastically reduce rendering time but also give a stylised look to the hair that can be adjusted by a set of design utilities and the shading parameters built in our system.

Making realistic clothes in 3d is one of the most challenging tasks since the innovation of CG animation. Clothing is an extremely important aspect of 3D character development, it can transform the models and tell a story behind the character's personality. In this tutorial making 3d clothes is easier as you can see we have used the simplistic approach to get our required results. It our creative imagination with the right planning to create simple clothes in just a few minutes.
