A significant portion of your work as a 3D artist will involve sketching and drawing throughout the design process. Not only will these visual explorations help convey your ideas to others, but they will help you see problems within a design and help you refine your ideas. 3D computer modeling and animation take design visualization beyond hand-drawn sketches and foam-core models by allowing you to create a complete replica of your design and study it from any point of view in any lighting condition. With Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2013, you can apply color, texture, lighting, and other effects to see how variations of these elements affect your design. You can get a realistic look at your design to help you make better decisions as you progress through the design process. Mastering Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 is intended to help an extremely broad audience ranging from those interested in creating content for films, television, and games to architects, designers, and visualization artists to present their designs through 3D models, rendered still images, and animations. This book focuses on the use of 3ds Max 2013 as a modeling and presentation tool. Because Mastering Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 is focused on such varied issues, you will not find comprehensive information about character animation or advanced special effects. You also will not find descriptions of every single tool or function available in 3ds Max 2013, since the software is extremely robust and the length of this book, after all, is limited. In this book you will find step-by-step tutorials covering the primary functions of the software that you will use in the process of modeling, texturing, lighting, and animating projects. These tutorials are based on years of experience using 3ds Max on real projects with real requirements and deadlines. By completing the tutorials, you will learn how to construct complex geometric forms and how to apply realistic textures and lighting to study a design. You will also learn how to create effects to help emphasize parts of your projects for presentations. Mastering Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 is also an Official Training Guide for Autodesk’s 3ds Max 2013 certification exam.
