Autodesk 3ds Max, formerly 3D Studio Max, is 3D computer graphics software for making 3D animations, models, and images. It was developed and produced by Autodesk Media and Entertainment. The tool is frequently used by video game developers and modders, as well as for visual effects and architectural visualizations.
The original version of Max was developed by the Yost Group for DOS and published by Autodesk. Later versions of Max after Release 4 were written for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows.
