Recreate the characteristics of nature with the new Organic Noise OSL map which modulates and filters OSL noises to create highly natural noise patterns. Programmed with several ready-to-use presents, the Organic Noise map allows you to quickly set up a variety of caustic, artistic and abstract noises that simulate the complexities of nature.

UVW Randomizer 2D and UVW Randomizer 3D OSL

Simulate unique aspects of nature with the 2D & 3D UVW Randomizer. This feature randomizes the Scale, Offset, and Rotation of UVW coordinates assigned to a map, creating spontaneous patterns that imitate nature. These can be driven by a seed for per-object randomness for each effect.

Autodesk Translation Framework (ATF)

3ds Max 2023.3 Update UVW Randomizer 2D and UVW Randomizer 3D OSL

Seamlessly transfer data and files within projects with support for Catia V5-6R2022 and Alias 2023 models in the Autodesk Translation Framework (ATF) importer. To increase convenience in shared workflows, Catia V5-6R2022 and Alias 2023 models can also be imported to 3ds Max through the ATF importer.


This update comes with the latest Substance 2.4.9 build with support for versions 8 and 9 of the Corona Renderer.

Improved Performance

Enhance your modeling and animation workflows with improved polygon mesh to triangle conversion performance in 3ds Max. Whether you’re performing conversions in the modifier stack or sending scene data to offline renderers like Arnold – experience significant speed enhancements that empower you to work faster.


This update includes MaxtoA which brings you a smoother artist experience, addressing issues with Physical Materials, Volume materials, and more.
