Product Description

From the Author

Great feedback from users!
The reader feedback on this book has been everything I could hope for. I set out to write the book that I wished were available when I started to learn MAX, to help me master the commands. Even seasoned users have been emailing me to tell me how helpful they have found the command references. I am so glad that this book has been helpful to so many people.

If you have even a basic understanding of Max, this is a great resource to have. It's not a learn how to use Max book, it is however simply the easiest and fastest way to find what panels you need to do the things you want to do in Max. I refer to this book more than any other Max book I have. I consider this book indispensible.

This book aims to be a reference for 3d studio max and nothing else. It achieves this aim by listing every single feature in detail in alphabetical order. This is great if you are looking at a button on screen and wondering what it does. It's less helpfull though in the (far more likely) scenario where you want to perform a specific function and are not sure where to find it or what it might be called.
In places it also has less than helpfull descriptions of some of 3d studio's functions along the lines of "bezier - performs bezier function". Doubtless the exact nature of the function is described in detail elsewhere in the manual - but where?
Some cross referencing might have been nice as well pointing the reader to similar functions as in a "see also" section. Any potential buyer should also note that this edition is specific to version 2.0 and not 2.5 (although the vast majority of it still applies)
It's not all bad news though. If you are using 3d studio seriously you need this book - but you will also probably need some others as well. If you are new to 3d studio you will need this book eventually - but get a beginers guide first.

Using Max manuals at school is a bummer - they're never at the lab or the library when you need em. Enter the Quick Reference Guide: anything you've ever wondered about is herein found. Every function is clearly explained, and helpful tutorials demonstrate the more complex routines. Laid out rather like a dictionary, entries describe how every menu, panel, icon, modifier, etc. works. This guide is absolutely vital to the successful understanding and usage of Max2's capabilities. Of all my Max2 books, this is the only one I can truly recommend.

This book was very concise, offering excellent reference to all the myriad details to be found in 3dsmax. Unfortunately, I was a first time user and could make almost no sense whatsoever of how to perform or incorporate many of these details. After purchasing an entry level manual however, (how to draw with 3dsmaxr2 in 14 days.) The wealth of information in this book made sense and was now of great value! This book is an excellent reference deserving to be added to your 3dsmax library.
