3D/AVTM is an integrated plug-in set that creates a video studio
inside of 3D Studio MAXTM. 3D/AV allows artists to merge broad-
cast quality, full-motion digital video and audio with 3D anima-
Integrated with Truevision Targa DVR series cards (Targa 2000SDX/
RTX/DTX, Targa 2000 and Targa 1000), 3D/AV provides a com-
plete solution for cost-effective video-graphics production on the
3D/AV supports the capture of video and CD quality audio di-
rectly to the computer hard drive. Digitized AV movies are com-
patible with MAX and can be immediately integrated into 3D
3D/AV delivers real-time performance while maintaining perfect
synchronization of video, audio and 3D elements throughout the
production process. 3D/AV makes it easy and affordable to create
3D animation using motion texture maps, video rotoscopes and
3D/AV software creates a virtual digital disk recorder inside your
computer using standard fast hard drives and the NT file system.
The AV/Digital Disk is synchronized to MAX’s viewport enabling
the design of sophisticated video effects.
3D/AV accelerates the digital compositing of video and 3D graphics
and is used to create full resolution video motion tests for anima-
tion preview. Final 3D rendering is displyaed in NTSC or PAL for-
mats in the correct aspect ratio, color and brightness for profes-
sional video production.
The AV Digital Disk plays finished animations in real-time, for pre-
viewing and recording broadcast quality animation to video. Pro-
fessional RS-422 VTRs are remotely controlled for frame accurate
capture and layoff to videotape.
3D/AV enhances production workflow and provides flexibility for
animators working on the desktop to create broadcast 3D anima-
tion and digital effects.
