Videos are out for several future 3ds Max features, including a Soft Selection Manipulator Caddy for users to adjust their soft selection falloff and size; improved 3d painting and surface layer adjustments; and 3d object painting. The third video showcases improvements in painting with multiple 3d object types, scattering size and placement of 3d objects in along surfaces and within the viewport. Great for 3d gardening or randomizing placement of repeated objects. You can even easily paint objects with the copied animation keys intact for each.
warning there is no sound for these vids….
