3ds Max 2012 Subscription Advantage Pack

Furthering the Rendering Revolution, the Autodesk® Subscription Advantage Pack for Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2012 software delivers new solutions that help artists create and refine the look they require faster and more easily than ever before.

With the completely new State Sets render pass system, ActiveShade interactive rendering for the iray® renderer from mental images®, and standard-setting 2D/3D integration with Adobe® After Effects® and Adobe® Photoshop® software, the Subscription Advantage Pack for 3ds Max 2012 brings new efficiencies to everyday rendering, compositing, and motion graphics workflows. In addition, new .NET exposure of the 3ds Max SDK (software development kit) enables developers to more effectively extend and customize 3ds Max.

NoteThe Autodesk® Subscription Advantage Pack is only available to Subscription users and is not available to anyone else nor is it part of the base install of 3ds Max 2012. Subscription users can download this component from the Autodesk Subscription Center. This updated version of the 3ds Max 2012 help replaces the original online help. The only change is the addition of this chapter, which covers the new features in the Subscription Advantage Pack. If you're not a subscriber, feel free to peruse this chapter, or you can skip to the original start page or to any other page via the Contents panel on the left side.
