Chapter 1. Getting Started > Setting up 3ds max 4

Setting up 3ds max 4

When you first start up 3ds max, you will be prompted to choose a display driver and authorize the program with a code that you obtain from Autodesk. If you do not authorize the program, it will run for only 30 days.

To configure the display driver:

1.
Open 3ds max 4 by double-clicking the icon it installed on your desktop. You can also choose Start > Programs > discreet > 3dsmax4 > 3dsmax4.

2.
In the 3ds max Driver Setup dialog box, choose a display driver.

Unless you have a GLINT, OpenGL, or other hardware accelerator card, stick with the default Heidi driver Software Z-Buffer. You can always change it later in Customize > Preferences > Viewports.

3.
Click OK.
