You Need this book!
on 1 August 2006
If you use 3DSMAX there is no reason why you shouldn't own this book! It will astronomically increase your understanding of procedural texturing using many multiple nested maps, Particle flow, legacy particles and other fancy trickery i never knew existed until buying this book.
I have worked through the first 4-5 tutorial and can honeslty say that my own knowledge has grown exponentially (I am a 3D art hobbyist 2yrs exp) and now i find myself attempting things and problem solving in a whole new way after working through only 1/10th of the books content.
Awesome colour images every step of the way and tons of reference images / movie files are also supplied on the DVD as well as the best video tutorial i've ever seen! (a teapot entering a planets atmosphere and violently burning as it heats up!)
Congrats to Pete draper on creating, in my opinion, the best 3D learning resource out there.
