Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Upgrading to 3ds max 7? Want to master its new features and integrate it seamlessly into your production workflow? Get this book. Discreet’s experts focus specifically on new features and workflow. Even better, plop in the accompanying DVD, and watch them put all this good stuff to work.

You’ll start by using 3ds max 7’s new features to model a knight’s cape and pendant; then explore new UVW Unwrap tools and a creative new way to use Reactor Cloth. You’ll discover improvements in character rigging; then, use 3ds max 7’s new tools for creating mesh objects. Finally, you’ll move on to assembly, lighting, rendering (using both mental ray and scanline), and compositing.

The book’s full of pictures and step-by-step instructions. Best of all, it won’t take long to absorb, so you can start getting results...and billing clients. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only
