In this series of lessons, we will explore some of the core rendering tools and features of 3ds Max that every rendering artist needs to be familiar with. This course is designed for users who are just getting started with rendering in 3ds Max, so we will not be focusing heavily on using lights, materials or recipes to give your render a specific look.

We will also learn how to resolve some rendering-related issues that you may encounter, and we will focus very heavily on helping you develop good habits and strong workflow practices that will be extremely beneficial to you as an emerging render artist.
