Read an Excerpt

Creating professional-quality graphics and animations requires a combination of artistic and technical talent but even before you can put these skills to work, you need a solid understanding of the digital 3D world. With the hands-on instruction provided here you will learn how to master the 3D world, and apply this understanding to the art of animation.
