Overview

This book/CD-ROM package introduces you to HOOPS, a 3D graphics library from Autodesk. The book shows how you can build professional-quality 3D graphics into your new or existing software applications, even if you know little about computer graphics. The package, combining a highly regarded software product and a detailed tutorial on how to use it, offers an extraordinary value. For many software developers, it will provide a quick and efficient way to gain hands-on experience with graphics programming; for more experienced programmers, it will put a superior tool into your hands.
