Text tool (enhanced)

Add data-driven information to your scenes. Edit paragraphs, words or individual letters.

3ds Max also retains information such as font theme, font style and glyphs when you copy text from Microsoft Word documents, easing your 2D-to-3D workflow.

You can now apply textures, animations and effects to text as an object that automatically updates if you change the content of the text. In addition, when you search for a font, the font style is displayed.

A powerful preset system includes bevel and animation presets. Add presets to your Favourites lists or share them with other users.

Custom value strings help you to display custom information text, such as the radius of a sphere or the speed of a vehicle in your scene.
