Über diesen Titel


For artists and animators currently using either 3ds Max or Maya, this book outlines the scope of what each program can do and how they complement each other. These two programs dominate the 3D market and knowing how to use both programs allows you to increase your effectiveness as an artist. This tutorial-style book explains how to create the same model or animation using either program. Each chapter contains a project that is created by one artist in Maya and another artist in 3ds Max in a side-by-side comparison.

Mike has been enthralled with 3D since before it was available on consumer machines. Some of his first real experiences with 3D were in 1995 when he helped to develop the use of 3D at a company called Saffire. It was for a video game called Wayne Gretzky And The NHLPA Allstars for Super Nintendo. Mike built some of the first 3D characters used in the games industry in a program called Playmation which later became Animation Master. Shortly after that he stumbled upon a much more complicated and exciting application called 3D Studio for DOS. Becoming proficient in Max as a hobbyist he was able to help Saffire make the switch from Animation Master when the time came, and continued to provide support from 1999-2004. Mike recently left Saffire after 11 years and is currently employed at DAZ Productions, functioning as a Project Manager for Bryce and DAZ / Studio. Bryce is a well known 3D landscape/environment rendering package and DAZ / Studio is an original 3D program from DAZ that is very similar to E-Frontier's Poser. DAZ Productions is a leader in the 3D content industry.
