3ds Max Design software is a great tool for generating high quality visuals, but today's audience expects more. This class introduces the art of storytelling as a means to create compelling experiences that communicate (and sell) design intent and meaning. In our increasingly competitive and visually-oriented society, sophisticated presentations are more important than ever before. Learn how to reconcile the persuasive goals of a presentation with the indulgent demands of the modern audience. Starting with an understanding of the language and repertoire of storytelling techniques, this class guides you through a basic knowledge of rendering and animation features to more complex workflows with characters and real-time ready assets within a narrative framework.
