I’ve decided to finally start making tutorials for 3ds Max. These tutorials are not aimed at animators per say, they are aimed towards engineering students who want to know how to make some awesome imagery using max. In order to keep this manageable the series will be broken up into a few one hour videos each covering some part of Max. The first of which will get you cranking out bad-a renders inside of sixty minutes.
Please understand that I will be giving out some of my best lighting and modeling techniques learned over the last six years through countless hours of professional training services and an endless amount of experimentation. This is a passion for me and something I consider myself to be extremely talented at. The bottom line is, if you want to learn from one of the best - here’s your chance. I’ll make this fast, fun and rewarding. It really isn’t that hard once you have the basics down.
Small disclaimer, you’re going to need a pretty nice computer, a mouse with a scroll wheel and a copy of 3ds max in order to follow along. If you’re a student, you can get a copy of max for free from the Autodesk Educational Community.

Tutorial #1 - Besting the VRC animation inside of 60 minutes
In this tutorial we meet max, import some CAD and learn
the basics of making renders look really, really good!
I’m open for future video suggestions also feel free to ask questions here, I’ll do my best to answer them. Feedback is also appreciated.
