Could I Create this Content With MAX?

Hi Everyone,

I really want to recreate this effect;

At 0.03 seconds you can see how the video is laid out, it shows a front, back and side view.

Could i create something in Max and the set it out so it would work in this format?

Any input is appreciated!

The patch shows one render context, where the 3d-model is in the center of the scene (position 0 0 0) and where four cameras ( are around it, all pointing towards the center (where the Seymour is located). instead of one (or more) 3d-model(s) one could use any 3d-scene / objects, don’t has to be 3d-model-animations generated with 3d-Software could also be objects, phys-objects or whatever.
the object have all the viewport attribute enabled (that means that they do not occupy the whole jit.window, but only a part of it), if you want to learn more about this feature there are some example patches in the max examples folder (camera or
