Discover the possibilities of the Open Shading Language (OSL) in the creation of textures and materials within 3D Studio Max.

In this introductory tutorial, we will explore practical exercises from the very basics, addressing common challenges in the ArchViz space. Through these practices, you will become familiar with the capabilities of OSL, allowing you to expand control over your textures and materials compared to conventional MAX tools.

We also invite you to delve deeper into this methodology through the Autodesk OSL Tutorials.
