3DS MAX Help spot

When I was starting out in Animation 4 years ago, I always wished there was a thread where I could ask any question rather than posting a whole new thread. Now that I’m a senior and been the lead animator on two Championship finalist animations, I figured I’d set up this help spot. So, if you have questions about 3DS MAX, ask them here and if I don’t know the answer, then it’s one more thing I need to learn and if I can’t figure it out, there are plenty of other people around these boards who can help too. :slight_smile:

Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk 3ds Max Design software provide powerful, integrated 3D modeling, animation, and rendering tools that enable artists and designers to focus more energy on creative, rather than technical challenges.

Hmm. Does anyone have any good resources or advice regarding rigging models?

My team has created some very nice models for this years safety animation, but our head character-modeler is tearing his hair out trying to figure out a good way to rig.

Area.autodesk.com has a bunch of good stuff as well as videos showing some great tips :slight_smile: http://area.autodesk.com/channels/3dsmaxhowtos

Hope that helps! :smiley:

Is there a way to make a 2D sketch like you do for Autodesk Inventor and then project it to make a 3D figure?
