Autodesk 3ds Max is the application of choice for professional animators working in game design and film effects because of its amazing set of character animation tools. But while the results these professionals achieve can be stunningly complex, animating characters with 3ds Max doesn't have to be hard. Its powerful Biped module, with pre-linked and realistically constrained skeletons and its suite of motion tools, dramatically speeds up the animation process. The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will have you animating your own characters in just a few hours.See BIP files ENV, 51 included with 3ds Max, 271 MFE, 252, 256a258, 263 MIX, 183 motion, 169a171 XAF, 169 filters, 68, 180 Filters button ...
