In this video you will learn how to create simple crowd simulation with AI Implant plugin in 3ds max 7. This ia very quickstart tutor and only demo you 10 number of boxs wondering around on a terrain. AI implant is a very powerful crowd simulation plugin for 3ds max, unlike massive software which only can work on Linux platform, AI implant can work on Windows.


Video Tutorial (Runing time about 11 mins)



Quickstart quide:

Create terrain
1. create a plane with 8X8 segments

2. With the plan selected ,go to AI Implant/Terrain/Set Surface Terrain (Top right menu)

3. Rescale the plan till it roughly match the AI terrain

4. Apply a noise modifier to the plane (scale about 1200, strengh about 450, check fractal)

Character set up
5. create a box

6. With the box selected, go to AI Implant/character/Make character
check the "Align with terrain" option

7. With the box selected, go to AI Implant/solver/edit group01--->create a group

8. Go to AI Implant/behavior/Wonder around--->set probability to about 0.25

7. GO to AI Implant/utility/Duplicate--->set number to ten, play around with scattering parameters

Simulation
8. In the 3ds max animation menu: uncheck the "Realtime" and "loop" options

9. select the AISolver 01 and check "use catche"

10. Playback the animation once, now it is realy to render. Done.

P.S:Tutorial for "Making of complex crowd scene (battle) by using AI Implant" coming soon...
