Here is another exciting 3ds max tutorial. The author, Jan Milka, will show you How to create cool looking 3d logo animations inside 3d studio max.
He will show you how to export the animation into a RPF format which will allow you to import a Max camera into the After Effects and create a depth map which will be needed for creating a nice depth of field. To save your time he is not showing the modeling, texturing or lighting process in this tutorial.
