Tzadi beleive it or not I just completed all the minor adjustments requested me by Alex,
based on the suggestions of an advanced Maya and Mental Ray graduate from Gnomon.
Which tested throughout all the assets and docs included with the Tutorial...
After these last edits and additions now the Guide reached the (1011) pages mark...!
I also added a few extensive quotes from the Gnomon Master Classes 2011 Q&A session...
I will zip up the new assets and upload them on my web as soon as for Alex to download them.
In his last note he told me that after these minor adjustments, he will be ready to publish it...

Now it really depends on Gnomon since that the job is done and even if it costed me a lot
of time and efforts, I'm very satisfied with the result...!

I have enclosed a pic of the printed version done by the Gnomon graduate and note that at the time
the picture was taken almost 2 months ago, the Tutorial was not as huge as it is now...!



Ciao.
Alex

Yikes!!

That is huge!! (that's what she said )

It will be one hell of a guide.

Looking forward to it. Hope it is not going to be too expensive.

Best,

Rich

Hi withego.

Thanks for the effort that you are putting in this project. This will be the best and only good guide for Maya. As I say, anyone can do nice renders using 3ds and Vray, but not everyone can do the same in Maya and mental Ray. I will be the first buying it.

Do you have any idea when we have this guide available?

Thanks

You are welcome cyrus... no idea yet, waiting for a reply from Alex and yep hopefully this Guide will became a valuable learning resource used in conjunction to the Maya online docs, but only time will tell...!

Hi Rich nice to see ya back here... btw as I told you already during the Master Classes, I quoted you in the Guide...

It will be not be too expensive since that the main scope of this Tutorial is to help as much as possible, all the green users out there...

To avoid long years spent learning and debugging, the Maya and Mental Ray 3D applications…!

Thanks Justin and talking about hard-core... to find the strength to go through all the assets once again to make the "minor" adjustments requested me by Alex, or should I call them "major" since that editing a complex piece of machinery like this where everything is so interconnected, it was really hard indeed...

I had to listen continuously to the "monster" riffs of one of the most underrated artist nowadays... Wes Borland the "Unicorn" of LB...

Not to get off topic...but Three Dollar Bill Ya'll was epic when it came out! Haven't thought about them in forever...I'll have to dig that cd back out. By the looks of that manual...I'll need my whole itunes library to make it through that thing!
