CGI - The Future is Now 9 Dec. 2004
By Jay Hochheiser - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Peter Weishar's latest work is a masterful and comprehensive discourse on the current state of 3d animation. This revolutionary art form has already established itself as a fundamental tool of the film industry, and its potential is scarcely imaginable. Prof. Weishar's writing is accessible to the lay person with accompanying wonderful images. A great addition to the coffee table!

Only pictures 18 Aug. 2007
By Alexandre Lima - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought that I would find at least little texts about the work done in each film or picture, but the books only shows images and more images from famous animation films and other films that used CGI. If you'd like to see many photos then buy it, otherwise choose a book with more things to say.
Just a fine book 3 Feb. 2008
By Intars - Published on
This isn't deep-covering book and sometimes I even felt that more info could be. It's minuses from my point of view is that it very rarely mentions software used in production of images and 3D stuff(Maya and Photoshop mentioned). I myself know around what kind of software things are going commonly but many 3D beginners who could look for inspiration of this book may suffer. Yet still - it is good book, nice choice of pictures and one thing also must be mentioned - Weishar himself mentions in the book that he even didn't intended to make best of best and that is not he claims his book is! Careful reading is a good point
Still, those who seek the book with good quality pictures - this is good choice.
