View Full Version : Now what??

11 November 2002, 03:20 PM
Hi folks,
I just got my Discovery CD. No manual (which I didn't expect so this is not a complaint). So now how do I begin, besides poking around a bit and getting confused?

This is a brand new journey for me and I want to get started on the right foot. So what books, tutorials and training CD's would you all recommend?

I am almost a total newbie to 3D. I am currently using A:M. Thanks for any help you veterans could offer.
