If you are looking at getting into the world of 3D Graphics, then 3ds max is one of the best 3D rendering programs available. It is popularly used in creating three-dimensional models, images, animations, movie effects, architectural visualization, as well as creating 3D content in video games.

Types of Licensing Available

Since every user has his or her own needs and purposes for using 3ds Max, Autodesk offers a few different licensing options. Each license has its own compatibility features and capabilities based on the type of work it will be used for. The four types of licensing include:

1) Free 3ds Max Trial (30 Day Licence)

Before deciding to purchase, you may want to check the latest 30 day trial version. Autodesk releases a new trial every year. So If this is your first time, it might be useful to check out the software and go through the free tutorials. There are plenty of introductory tutorials covering all areas of 3ds Max like animation, rendering, materials, etc. And 30 days gives you plenty of time check out the tutorials your interested in. Here is the trial.

2) Free Student Version

This package is offered free of charge for Students. It is specifically marked as “for Educational purposes only.” It is similar to the commercial version but has fewer functions and is meant to be used by students and people in Education. It cannot be used for creation of assets for either commercial or non-commercial purposes. The student license lasts for three years after which users will have the option to renew the license or upgrade to a more functional version. Here is the Student page where you can get started

3) Commercial Purchase

If you are looking for the best of the best, the commercial version of Autodesk 3ds Max is the solution. It has all the unlocked features, bears no watermark and the commercial licenses are easy to purchase. This version can be used to create assets for non-commercial and commercial distribution. When purchasing a commercial license online, you will need to check the different resources available as you may be eligible for discounts.

Commercial Purchasing Options

Autodesk offers a few convenient and flexible ways to purchase licences. Visiting Autodesk’s product website or talking to a verified and knowledgeable reseller will shed more light on which purchase may be best suited for your needs.
