Learning 3D design alone
Software — 3ds Max, V-Ray, Fume FX, After Effects
These are 3 short videos I made while experimenting with 3D physics simulation in 3ds Max.
I learned a lot about other 3D design techniques like meterials, rendering, lighting, camera blocking. Pretty much everything you see in them was done from scratch, using only my wits and many, many backup files.
