Every year around December 7, when the sun reaches 255 degrees of ecliptic longitude, the Major (Grater) Snow starts. It is the 21st solar term among the twenty-four solar terms and the third solar term in winter. Major Snow is a solar term that reflects climate characteristics, and the starting of which indicates the arrival of colder weather and increased possibility of snow.

Major Snow

As the month of snow, it's just the perfect time to create some snow-related scenes! Let's take the poster above for example, and get to know how to quickly create scenes like this in 3ds Max!

We will also need a 3ds Max plug-in called CG Magic, which includes many features that helps to greatly accelerate the creation process.

Mountain generatore

To create the mountain shapes like the poster, you may use the Model – Mountain tool in the Outdoor section. Select the drawn closed spline (as the basic shape of the mountain), set the height and slope of the mountain you want in CG Magic panel, and click generate, then the mountain can be easily created.

Add road to mountain with Terrain fitting feature

In addition, you may also use the Terrain Re-wiring feature to adjust the mountain, or add elements like rivers and roads to the mountains with the Terrain Fitting feature.

To add plants to the mountain, the Array – Brush feature in Edit section is a good choice. You may check the video to learn how to use it.
