One of the biggest problems I have seen with people trying to create Low Poly animations is that they don’t understand the theory behind it and it just fails. This tutorial, although meant for Cinema 4D, explains a lot of the ideas and concepts behind creating a Low Poly animation. If you don’t know where to start, watch this even if you are making it in 3ds max. The theory is the same.
One of our mentors, Karen Chang, created a low poly landscape in 3ds Max for 3D Modeling Landscape. If you need help, she would be the one to approach.
