Twenty years ago, Autodesk introduced 3ds Max software (then known as 3D Studio DOS), the first-ever, affordable 3D modeling, rendering, and animation system for the PC. Autodesk kicked off 20th anniversary celebrations for 3ds Max at SIGGRAPH.
At SIGGRAPH, Autodesk gave out 3ds Max anniversary t-shirts to attendees wearing old 3ds Max apparel. On Wednesday, July 28, at the Autodesk booth (South Hall, #500), top 3ds Max artists from various industries will share their expertise in a special 3ds Max Anniversary Tips & Tricks Extravaganza. Autodesk is also sponsoring the SIGGRAPH Blur Party to celebrate with the talented artists who use 3ds Max every day to create incredible 3D art. Further, the company is launching a 3ds Max anniversary microsite on the AREA, including an interactive historical timeline, an image gallery showcasing 3ds Max art by users from around the world, a trivia game, and a forum where users can post a wish for 3ds Max. Content on the site will be updated regularly and will soon include downloadable 3ds Max screensavers.
