Nuno Silva - Realistic Car Animation That Works With Every Renderer

In this short video tutorial, you can learn how to make a realistic car animation that works in every 3D renderer!

This animation is done in 3ds Max using the Craft Director Studio plugin as well as Lumion 2023 rendering software. Lumion Render is fully compatible with most 3D modeling software, including Revit, SketchUp, ArchiCAD, 3ds Max, Rhino, AutoCAD, Vectorworks, and many others.

With the Craft Director Studio animation plugin, you can simply create a model and start “driving” cars, vehicles, and airplanes through 3D environments. You can also adjust variables like suspension and add camera effects to achieve the exact look and feel you desire. It's available for Autodesk's products, 3ds Max and Maya on Windows 64-bit or Linux 64-bit.

Visit the Craft Animations' YouTube channel, and explore a bunch of video tutorials for several software and things you want to animate.

Special thanks to Gui Felix for mentioning the 3ds Max plugin.
