Autodesk 3ds Max 2017.1 adds Blended Box Mapping and more

The 3D software for modeling, animation, and rendering that allows you to create massive worlds in games and stunning scenes for design visualization.

What’s new in Autodesk 3ds Max 2017.1?

Blended Box Mapping

The Blended Box map allows you to project maps onto objects in a much simpler way than the traditional method requiring complex UV mapping. It is ideal for situations where you want to apply a box map across one more objects to map them from all sides, such as applying details like dirt or grime. Working similarly to box mapping, Blended Box map projects images from three 90° directions. You can project one, three, or 6 different maps for every side of the projection box. A key difference between the two mapping types is blending. Traditional box or cube mapping creates hard seams between the different UV projections, where Blended Box map gives you the ability to blend between the maps for a more seamless result.

Data Channel Modifier in Autodesk 3ds Max 2017.1

The Data Channel modifier is a new tool for automating complex modeling operations. By piping mesh data through a series of controls known as operators, you can achieve a huge variety of effects that dynamically update as you make changes.

The Data Channel modifier can be useful for automating such tricky operations as blending materials based on different states, creating deformations based on an output, or dynamically copying data between channels for storage. In addition, data can be visualized directly in the viewport as gradients of color.

Sometimes it’s easier to show than try to explain, so here are some examples of how you could use the data channel modifier.
