3Ds 5 MAX

Recommended Posts

1. Wrong forum
2. It is/was one of the industry standard modelling packages. So yes.
3. It''s expensive though, so if you want a cheaper alternatives look into blender or Milkshape 3D. There''s also a free version of Max called gmax, although you''ll have trouble saving your work in a usable format.

1)I''ll have mercy and assume you aren''t going to say that you have a license.
2)In that case, it''s too expensive for what you need, spend ~100 on Visual C++ and a bit more to get a more entry-level modeller such as the aforementioned Milkshape, Blender, or Game Space. You may also want to save a bit of cash to purchase a license of Photoshop, the standard 2d image manipulation program.

3ds max is a 3d package, it renders 2d images, exports 3d models, and animation etc.. You can''t make a game with Max alone..

Oh, and also unless you want a 3d chess game, don''t get it..


Hey man could you please elaborate on your point, i have already invested so much on the idea that i don''t think i can turn back, finance is not a problem to me.

Hmm... I''m not sure which point you needed elaborating, but anyway:

3DSMax is a modelling program. It is useful for creating 3D models, animations, as well as 2D renders. You could use it to model your chess pieces, but you''d still need to write the rest of the game in some kind of programming language - 3DSMax will only give you the models. (I''d kind of assumed you knew this when I wrote my first post)

Although you could model your chess pieces in 3DSMax, and then render them for use in a 2D game, this is probably overkill depending on the graphical requirements of your game. There are much cheaper and easier ways of getting 2D images of chess pieces.
