3DS Max 9 Essential Training: Bones

Perkins shows you how to create a Bones System and how to animate an arm By Chad Perkins

Covering the fundamentals of rendering, animation, and modeling, instructor Chad Perkins demonstrates how to push the limits of 3ds Max 9 for stunning effects. Chad starts with the application's basics, then goes on to discuss many of the key features of 3ds Max 9, as well as important principles of animation. He teaches users about creating and editing mesh, modifiers, architectural modeling, texture mapping, keyframe animation, rigging, basic kinematics, and much more. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.

In this video, instructor Chad Perkins covers Bones and in the clip, he shows you how to make and rig and animate an arm, bowling. Once you apply a Bones system to your objects, you want enough mesh so when your object deforms, everything looks smooth under the Bones. Perkins then shows you how to create Bones using the Bones Systems. The cool thing about Bones, he says, is everything is linked together in a natural way.
