Environment
DreamScape

DreamScape provides users with cutting edge tools for creating realistic landscapes, seascapes, skies, outdoor lighting and more. This incredible tool is actually a tightly integrated suite of modeling and animation tools for building complete environments including mountainous landscapes, realistic skies and bodies of water. In contrast to other terrain creation tools for 3ds max, DreamScape`s Terra module uses new rendering technologies that occupies much less of your computer memory, making it possible to render exceptionally large, detailed terrains even on a modest host system.

Maya Power Translators
Maya Power Translators From the award winning advanced geometry team that redefined CAD translation for Autodesk 3ds Max, comes the next generation of CAD data translation for Autodesk Maya, Maya Power Translators.
If you're one of the increasing number of designers and artists that are looking for a better way to get mechanical CAD design data into Maya, then your wait is over. nPower Software's Maya Power Translators give you the power to import IGES, STEP, SAT, Rhino models directly into Maya. Forget the Poly translated mesh importers of the past. nPower Software's advanced Maya Geometry pipeline supports the original CAD model's precision NURBS-based surface and solids geometry and topology allowing you to re-tessellate your mesh to whatever resolution you want on the fly.
Power Translator
Power Translator Power Translators imports into a precise format used by most CAD systems called a Boundary Representation. This format contains both topological or connectivity information and geometric information. The geometric information is typical a precise definition of a higher order surface (plane, cylinder, cone, torus, spline, etc.) Power Translators can represent data used by most CAD systems without resorting to polygonal approximations. Power Translators creates a mesh from this precise geometry at render time using view dependent meshing algorithms.
Power Translator Pro
Power Translator Pro Power Translators Professional significantly reduces the time it takes to import large models and assemblies into 3ds Max. What used to take days or weeks can now be accomplished in a matter of hours. Working with large models and assemblies inside of 3DS MAX can be significantly faster if you have a dual core and/or multi-processor box. Because sometimes the native CAD data needs a little or even a lot of help, Power Translators Professional also includes the full Power NURBS toolset, which contains a complete set of geometry cleanup and reconstruction tools.
Power Translator Universal
Power Translator Universal Power Translators Universal reads native Catia, UG, and Pro/E files and creates a "Power NURBS" object to represent the precise geometry defined in these advanced CAD files.  It can then create a mesh at render time to a specified user defined tolerance relative to the size of the object in the image.  For example, a tolerance of 1/2 Pixel will produce an extremely high quality image with very smooth edges that do not have polygonal artifacts.  The "Power NURBS" object introduced by Power Translators Universal can have materials applied at the sub-object level and supports most MAX Mesh modifiers (twist, UVMap, etc.). Power Translators Universal could easily pay for itself on a single project in time savings alone.
 
Power Rhino2Max
Power Rhino2Max Power Rhino2Max reads native Rhino files and creates a "BrepObject" to represent the precise geometry defined in these files.  It can then create a mesh at render time to a specified user defined tolerance relative to the size of the object in the image.  For example, a tolerance of 1/2 Pixel will produce an extremely high quality image with very smooth edges that do not have polygonal artifacts.  The "BrepObject" introduced by Power Rhino2Max can have materials applied at the sub-object level and is able to utilize most MAX Mesh modifiers (twist, UVMap, etc.).  Power Rhino2Max is a subset of the Power Translators product.

Modeling
Power NURBS

Power NURBS is a unique and exciting new product for 3ds Max / Viz.  If you are a designer or artist that has been searching for a tool that will unbridle your creativity, Power NURBS is an amazing and revolutionary product for 3D modeling. If you want to focus your creativity on your design (instead of esoteric commands), and model in an intuitive and powerfully creative fashion, you should try out Power NURBS.


AfterBurn

AfterBurn 4.0 is the de facto standard when it comes to creating volumetric particle effects for 3ds max and will unleash your imagination in ways you never imagined. AfterBurn's pedigree is unquestionable: it has been production-proven in many amazing cinematic events such as Armageddon, Dracula 2000, Coronado and various IMAX films. It has also been an essential tool for a number of hit computer games such as Warcraft 3, Starcraft, Diablo 2, Final Fantasy X, Sin, Mechwarrior 3, and many others. So it's no wonder that AfterBurn 4.0 is chosen by graphics professionals when they need superior output and solid technology.
