Hello, im new over here, please read

Hello, my name is steven, im from venezuela, i had the account on cg for a long time, but for matters of time i was not able to start desing on 3D studio max, i'd like to do a scene, i have read few tutorials, but they explain but not that much.. I think the most dificult part is to make the image looks real, i got V-ray, anyways, i want to do this so badly, i want to be a very good desinger, but i need some help

Please, leave some comments, good tutorials, and if someone would like to tutor me, leave me a pm with the email ICQ or AIM

You have got a tall mountain to climb.
To begin with don't worry about the renderer complete the tutorials that accompany 3dsmax. Once you have a foudation in modelling, texturing, animation & lighting/rendering then you can look at vray specifics.

If you are after high quaility in depth vray tutorials then I would recommend

$70 but quaility does not come cheap.

Enjoy the journey.

Not to be rude, normaly a typical project goes somthing like this:-

1. Collect resources, so find photgraphs, blueprints, CAD, maybe even completed models.
2. 3D modelling, splines, nurbs, poly etc.
3. Lighting setup, Standard light rig/Radiosity/GI/photons/HDRI/etc
4. Texture the models/scene, uvw unwrapping/uvw mapping, creating textures, from photos, procedual shaders, shader networks etc.
5. Rendering, AI settings, photons, final gathering, test renders
6. Post Production, Photoshop/GIMP for animation After effects/Combustion etc.
7. Feedback from client usaly results in repeating the process over and over again.

So as you can see your not going to start and finish a project until you have a good foundation in all of the above.

As for tutorials these are some of the best and they should keep you busy for a very longtime:-


Modelling a Lotus Car

Hard work and determination my friend.
Just one last point if you always follow tutorials your never going to learn for yourself and develop your own style, learn by doing.

Anthonyy, u are not being rude, in fact i like ur help and everything else.. THanks all of u guys, hope someday i could rox

The only problem is that i can't buy dvds, i live in venezuela and we don't have any dollars to buy things from internet..

I agree with Anthonyy, but I must add that new versions of 3ds max have excluded excellent tutorials, such as camera tracking, normal bump maps and and another good ones so I recommend you download 3ds Max 8 help and suport files from Autodesk´site. Then you can look at What is New in subsequent versions.
