Chapter 1. Getting Started > Touring the Interface

Touring the Interface

3ds max 4 is a very powerful program that includes tens of thousand commands. To save desktop real estate, many commands are initially hidden from view. Consequently, it can take a while to learn where they are located. This section takes you on a tour of what you typically see as you work with the program.

The 3ds max 4 interface is visually organized by function. Commands are layered in menus, toolbars, tab panels, modules, and dialog boxes to maximize the screen real estate without compromising workspace. Graphical icons and right-click menus supply handy shortcuts to the most commonly used commands.
