Written to version 4.5, this extraordinarily versatile handbook with companion CD-ROM introduces novices to mission-critical form?Z concepts while serving as a self-paced training manual and compact desktop reference for more experienced users. Central to the book is a powerful collection of step-by-step tutorials ? from easy "5-Minute Models" to more advanced exercises ? enabling readers, regardless of prior experience, to generate meaningful, fun 3D models in minutes! This edition now features a greater number of examples based on techniques used by professional game and Web designers who are turning increasingly to form?Z to solve today's modeling, rendering, and animation challenges. The book is also ideal for architects, engineers, and industrial designers who need a fast track to mastery of new scripting capabilities. Helpful appendices are also included to guide 3D enthusiasts of all abilities through the ins and outs of form?Z hardware platforms and file formats, as well as the use of keyboard shortcuts to enhance productivity as they advance their skills.
