This video demonstrates the creation and modification of primitives. I’ll use several primitives to create a simple desk lamp and then apply modifiers to the primitives to better model the necessary shapes. Along the way, I’ll also demonstrate a few tricks to make modeling easier. Prepared and narrated by Chad Miller.
This video demonstrates one method for creating a Daylight System in 3ds Max. The Daylight System command is a simple tool for adding realistic lighting and shadows to a scene.
