The Sound track lets you add audio to your animations by either of two options: Default Sound (Sound Options dialog) and ProSound. To assign the sound option, use Preferences Animation Sound Plug-In. To access the sound settings, open Track View, click and then right-click the Sound track, and choose Properties.

While Default Sound is easier to use, ProSound is far more powerful and offers more options.

  • ProSound

    ProSound is a real-time, multitrack audio solution for 3ds Max that includes full support for and integration with Track View. For best results, use Track View in Dope Sheet mode.

  • Default Sound

    When using the Default Sound plug-in, the Sound track in the Track View Controller window provides two sound options: You can use the metronome to generate a series of beeps, or load a sound file to play back.
