3ds Max 8 Bible Reviews
When I struggled with Max I was looking for a book that would help me learn. After reading this book I knew the ends and out of Max. It made me extremley proficient in the jargon and aware of all the buttons on the interface. It also gave me techniques to use which I chopped and used in other projects. Its a huge book but if you invest the time and money and are truley serious about Max then it would definately benefit you to have this book. THIS BOOK SAVED MY LIFE
A nice book especially made for intermediate level persons like me, It is great as it makes you read and work on the model well so you will learn it.
Quick shipment and in excellent condition. Manual provides good reference, but wouldn't recommend to beginner.
I used to own a version of this Bible for 3D Studio 4x for DOS, and was very satisfied with the multitude of information it shared about the 3D software. The new version even comes with a set of tutorials on DVD-ROM and even a backup copy of the entire Bible. I haven't perused through much of the book, but I doubt I'll be disappointed by what it will teach me about 3D Studio MAX 8.
this book would have been better served to cater to either the professional or the beginner instead of trying to pass out material for both. This book have done with more step by step walk throughs as well.
I couldn't express it better: a must have for everyone seriously involved in 3DS Max 8. If you have a question or a problem, Murdock will show you the way. No one can teach you the use of 3DS Max on paper but this book is a magnificent help anyway. Worth it's money.
I'm new to 3ds Max 8, so I bought this book to try and help me learn the program~ This book very well written and goes through all the tools and workings of 3ds max 8 plus some of the more popular plug-ins (afterburn etc.) I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know the ins and outs of 3ds Max, it's great:-)
