Hello everyone, hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to an even better weekend. Here is our selection of the best tutorials for this week. We hope you enjoy them.
- Our favorite tutorial for the week is this video tutorial that explains in detail the art of Painting with Lasers in CS5. The video is very well edited, easy to follow and the results are excellent. We encourage you to follow this tutorial if you are interested in painting or in changing the textures of your photographs with CS5.
Realistic Architectural Visualization with 3ds Max and mental ray, Second Edition by Roger Cusson and Jamie Cardoso is a highly recommended book for experienced users in modeling. The book jumps straight into the practicality of the subject so you must have experience in this field if you want to get out the most from it.
It is a perfect recommendation for architects and architecture students. Its shows you step by step and in a very clear manner how to render architectural scenes using mental ray in 3ds Max. Programs in general are quite difficult to get a hang of and there always seems to be a point of frustration with all books, this particular book tries to tackle these feelings by using a lot of images and all sorts of marks that will help you follow through the examples with success and a smile, or at least without a frown.
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!
