Overview

3D design and effects are everywhere. From the Web to print graphics, from type design and advertising to games and corporate presentations. However, you don't necessarily have to be a 3D graphics whiz or use the latest high-end 3D software packages to create stunning 3D artwork. In fact a basic 3D program (e.g. Corel's Bryce 3D) or a 2D painting and image manipulation package like Adobe Photoshop is all you really need.

3D Wizardry shows you how to make the most of the software you already have by demonstrating tricks and tips, techniques and methods that you can easily employ to create great 3D effects for your artwork. These techniques range from classic 'pro' effects such as reflections, drop shadows and channel operations to quick and easy tricks using the latest technology on humble desktop computers.
