To use FStorm Engine, you need to have a NVIDIA graphic card. Otherwise you can not use it. Be sure to check what graphic card you have before you take the course.
As you follow this tutorial series, you will learn to use FStorm, a very powerful and partially new render engine that is integrated with 3DS Max.
There are free versions available. But if you want, you can buy it for 20 Euro (€) monthly. However the free version will be enough for you.
At the end of the training, you will be able to create a 3d professional photo studio scene and get high quality, photo-realistic renderings of various models. This is an especially practical training course for anyone working with catalogues.
