This excellent guide to 3D Studio MAX covers everything that new, intermediate, and advanced users need to master the high-end 3-D modeling and animation package from Kinetix. Introductory chapters present the central concepts of the package--such as object-oriented behavior, parametric objects, modifiers, space warps, material mapping, and plug-ins--and help you learn how to work in 3-D space. The authors also provide design theory on color, light, composition, perspective, animation, storyboards, and project planning. Next, offering both explanations of features and lots of hands-on instruction, the authors cover modeling, working with materials and maps, lighting, using camera angles, creating animations, rendering, and compositing. The projects in the book range from simple objects to complete scenes. A companion CD-ROM offers 3D Studio MAX files, plug-ins, models, textures, audio clips, and images that you use as you work through the book's projects. When you're ready to move on to more projects, check out Volume II: Advanced Modeling and Materials and Volume III: Animation.
