Autodesk Inc. announced plans to support Sony Computer Entertainment Inc's next generation computer entertainment system, PlayStation 3, unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) last week. According to the company, the Media and Entertainment division of Autodesk has long had a technology dialog with SCEI, and the game developers who create the entertainment titles with its 3ds Max professional 3D animation software for its PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable platforms. Autodesk also announced intentions to support 3ds Max title developers who may rely on the Collada format to streamline the complexities of next generation game title development. With the overwhelming computing power announced in PlayStation 3 -- from Cell processing, advanced graphics capabilities of RSX which is jointly developed by NVIDIA and SCEI, and support for high-resolution 1080p -- demand for HD game titles is expected to rise. 3ds Max software is a 3D animation software solution for the digital entertainment industry -- and the company hopes to meet the needs for title developers as they create HD game titles for the current and next-generation PlayStation platforms.
