The Media and Entertainment Collection lets animators, modelers, and visual effects artists access the tools they need to create compelling effects, believable 3D characters, and massive digital worlds. Move assets quickly between creative tools with one-click workflows. This collection includes Maya, 3ds Max, and a number of other Autodesk creative applications.
Bring your imagination to life with Maya 3D animation, modeling, simulation, and rendering software. Maya helps artists tell their story with one fast, creative toolset. Use the integrated Arnold renderer to help solve your most complex rendering problems. Quickly create complex, beautiful procedural effects with instanced objects. Make high-level animation edits with a nondestructive, clip-based, nonlinear editor.
If you can dream it, you can build it in 3ds Max, the 3D software for modeling, animation, and rendering that allows you to create massive worlds in games and stunning scenes for design visualization. With tools to help shape and define, 3ds Max is modeling software for artists looking to create a range of environments and detailed characters. 3ds Max works with most major renderers, such as V-Ray, Iray, and mental ray, to create high-end scenes and striking visuals for design visualization and more. 3ds Max is used by top-tier animation and design firms to create imaginative characters and realistic scenes in games and architecture. For flexible interoperability, 3ds Max works with Autodesk Revit, Inventor, Fusion 360, and Stingray, as well as SketchUp, Unity, Unreal, and more.
Other Autodesk software components in this Collection include Motion Builder, Mudbox, Character Generator, Rendering in A360, ReCap 360 Pro, and 25GB of cloud storage.
