Introduction and Project Overview [Autogenerated] Hello and welcome to introduction to animation in three D. S. Max, presented by digital tutors. My name's DeLana when I'll be your instructor. Guiding you through the process of animating in max objective in this training is to understand the basics of animating within this software to grasp a solid foundation of its incredible animation tools, which must be attained before one can work at the utmost level, bringing in animated models and objects to life in an appealing wait. We'll start the training by covering everything from being mindful of animation in time settings to exploring the several ways Max allows us to set an edit. Key frames will cover a path animation and learn how to extract key frame data from procedural animation and optimize it, and even learned how to blend animation with other animations. Using time saving techniques, non linearly will cover. Max's robust animation layering system will dive into different track views like the F Curve editor and dope sheet for polishing motion, discuss techniques for seamlessly cycling animation and learn how to automate animation with expressions and wide parameters. We've prepared a ton of exciting information for you that I know will make the process of learning animation to Max and Enjoyable one. Would that let's say we go ahead and get started with an overview of Max's time controls.
