Learning


#1

Hey, I am kinda new to this, and am not the oldest in this group. I want to start to work with 3ds max, but I don’t know much about it. The best I can make is a box. Can you guys point me in the right direction with some tuts that might be helpful and mabey some stuff I should be looking at first?

Thanks!! Am i gonna need to know other stuff, I hear people talking about using photoshop.Do I need to learn that stuff 2?

Yeah but don’t overload yourself. There is a photoshop forum also, but one step at a time ok? It’s easy to get discouraged if you try and learn everything at once. First step is to make a good model, try that first. :slight_smile:

Head to the Max tips and tricks section of this forum, that will get you well on your way.

I have no idea why u gave me a link for Beveling Edges. I guess my boxes will look a whole lot cooler now. I think i am gonna take this real slow. Might not get into makin anything until I got a good look at everything involved. I was told to really get drawing done first. If I know how to use a pencil, it will be easier working with this stuff is what i was told. Ill just mess around with it in my spare time, nothing big. Thanks for your
“GUIDE LINES” I try not to be the normal n00b(they get flamed to much), but just a fiew question here and there will get me on my way… Thanks Again

Those are some great references there. I am an absolute beginner with 3D work, but have always admired it. I happened to stumble across this board and totally dig it. I hope to be able to learn a lot from here and contribute once I know what the heck I am doing :p.

Thanks again for the excellent resources there!
