Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2016 software offers new features for customization, better collaboration and ease of use. Users can extend 3ds Max with Max Creation Graph, a new node-based programming system. Non-destructive animation worfklows in XRef make collaboration throughout the production pipeline easier.

Autodesk® Maya® 2016 software delivers new features, performance improvements, and artist-friendly tools that greatly enhance the entire Maya experience.

A new native sculpting toolset brings improved brush based modeling tools to Maya, allowing modelers to quickly modify forms and shapes. Additionally, artists can achieve even more realistic VFX results using Bifrost with the addition of foam, surface tension, viscosity, and adaptive aerodynamics.
