Who Should Attend
Students wishing to earn this program in order to learn how to create 3D geometric objects, perspectives, basic image manipulation and rendering.

Purpose
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Find their way around the 3D Studio Max workspace environment
- Create 3D geometric objects from different perspectives
- Manipulate objects they create by scaling, rotating, and copying them
- Reshape their objects by applying modifiers
- Create other powerful building-block objects, such as lines and 2D shapes
- Know how lights and cameras and enhance their scenes
- Animate the objects they create and render them to still or animated images
