Have you watched the part 1 of our animation tutorial? In this tutorial, we take you through a slightly more complex animation which requires making copies of key-frames, and understanding timing. If you wish to learn more, you can sign up to one of our courses. We run classes for kids and professionals. Professionals (such as industry experts, university students & adults) can get in touch to enquire about private one to one training.
We also teach kids the same tools & techniques during our games design, 3D animation and code club. These classes run during term time, as well as on our school holiday camps!
When a 3D model has been fully modelled, it is best for it to be unwrapped to prepare the model for the texturing stage. In the video below, we unwrap a teapot to show you some of the available unwrapping techniques used in Autodesk 3Ds Max. The same tool we teach to our students during our term time and school holiday camps for our computer 3D games design courses and code club.
Have you ever wondered how animations are made? You're not alone! We have provided tutorials and training to hundreds of kids & professionals on 3D Animation.
Our school holiday camps teach kids how to make 3D animations, using Autodesk's 3Ds Max.
Watch the video below as we teach a basic bouncing ball animation!
In this 3Ds Max lighting tutorial, we teach you how to use the daylight system to replicate the sun. This method uses the Mental Ray render engine. It allows the user to create photo-realistic images and renders.
Watch the tutorial below to see the tools & techniques we teach our students!
When a 3D modeller is done modelling and texturing their assets, it's very important to make them look good during the lighting and rendering stage.
In the video below you'll learn the "Skylight" technique in Autodek's 3Ds Max.
We teach this technique to kids and adults during our classes and courses.
When it comes to creating games, 3D models and animation, it's important to be able to edit objects to any shape or form you desire.
The most important editing (modelling) tools in Autodesk's 3Ds Max is the "Editable poly" tool.
We teach this tool during our classes & courses for kids and professionals.
We've noticed kids enjoy using this tool a lot during our games design and coding classes.
Watch the video below to learn how the Editable poly tool in 3Ds Max works!
When you want to learn any application, it is crucial to understand the user interface well. We emphasise this in our code club, and during our 3D games design and 3D animation classes, both for kids and professionals.
The video below talks about the tabs/panels of 3Ds Max, a power 3D modelling and animation tool developed by Autodesk. 3Ds Max is one of our most commonly used tools when we teach games design and animation to kids, in particular during term time and school holiday camps.
The most important tools in any 3D application, whether in a 3D modelling software such as 3Ds Max, or a game engine such as Unreal Engine 4, are the transformation tools.
Transformation is the combination of movement, rotation and scale. Watch the video below to understand how you can use the transformation tools within 3Ds Max. These tools are constantly used in our courses for kids (at the after school club), as well as professionals wanting to learn 3Ds Max.
In our coding camp, 3D games design and 3D animation courses, we used 3Ds Max for modelling and animating assets. When using any 3D modelling and animation too, it is crucial to understand the different viewpoints, as well the differences between perspective and orthographic. Watch the video video below to learn more!
When it comes to creating video games, one of the most important aspects is to create 3D objects. There are many different tools which allow the creation of 3D objects. Autodesk is one of the biggest companies in the world who create 3D applications. At software Academy, we use Autodesk's 3Ds Max (or 3D Studio Max) during our term time, and school holiday camps, as well as our professional courses. It's a great tool to create 3D models, characters & 3D Animations. We also use it as part of our code club to teach kids how 3D modelling works.
When using a 3D tool, navigation is key. Watch the video below as Ali explains how navigation works in Autodesk's 3Ds Max.

Term time classes for kids
We use 3Ds Max in our term time after school program to teach kids how to make video games and 3D animations. It's also used as part of our code club.
school Holiday camps
During our school holiday camps, we use 3Ds Max to create 3D assets and Animations. Why not check our our holiday camps page to see what kids can learn on their next school holiday?!
3ds max for professionals
We also teach a number of Autodesk applications, including 3Ds Max to professionals.
