This review is from: Learning Maya 6: Maya Unlimited Features (Paperback)
although you do require a version of maya unlimited, this book gives you everything you need to know about its features.
Covering the aspects of fluids, cloth, fur and hair which are generally identifed as the hardest and most difficult areas of study in a 3D Application.
Written specifically for Maya 6 Unlimited it will talk you through the aspects on using these features in your projects through a series of tutorials from simple to complex, giving you a broad understanding of the concepts used when applying these techniques.
This book is a great companion to ones education and can also be used as a reference book, its provides insightful information on the issues required and how to do it.
This book does however require you to have some intermediate knowledge of the application as well as lot of patience.
Its an official maya book, and there are few out there that covers how to create cloth, how to do hair and fur as well as advanced fluid effects. Definatly one worth buying!
