Now, for example, when creating a line, snapping to grid points ensures that the vertices are plotted exactly on the intersections of the home grid. In past versions of 3ds max, you would have had to set the Grid to an appropriate spacing first. 34 Part I: What's New Part I: What's New 35 Snaps previewing is another big assist for accurate object placement. In the past, if you placed the cursor next to a grid point and clicked the mouse, the object would snap, but not always where you expected, and you'd have to go back and move it again.

Let's digress for a moment and consider why you would want to use Normal mapping with Projection. The basic aim is to project a complex high-resolution object to a simple angular low-resolution object. As you know, simple objects with fewer polygons calculate faster and are more efficient for dynamic simulations, scene management, and ultimately rendering. In particular, real-time game engines perform best with models that are lower in polygon count. But the low-polygon object must look as close as possible like its high-poly counterpart; its Bump map must display the same curvatures.

Paint Selection Region makes selecting objects and sub-objects quicker, Object Display Culling speeds up the viewport redraw, Array Preview is now more intuitive, the new Alignment tools are faster and more robust, and Snapping is more predictable. You'll quickly master these new features as you progress through the chapters to come. Have fun! Chapter 2. what's new in modeling By Daniel Manahan Modeling in 3ds max 7, one of the program's core strengths, has been improved through the addition of new modifiers and significant new functions within the Editable Poly modifier.
