Detailed but under-illustrated Sept. 17 2007
By Haydn Allbutt - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent and highly detailed reference for the program 3ds Max 9. As near as I can tell it mentioned every button and command that 3ds Max has available. My main criticism is that it is highly under-illustrated. While every function and button is mentioned, as a beginner to 3ds Max, I found that I often could not find the command being referred to in the text, whereas a screen shot would have quickly, and clearly shown what I should look for. In addition, since 3ds Max is such a sophisticated and detailed program which is great, it is often not readily apparent how all the various settings and parameters that can be entered for a given effect should be used. This book mentions most, if not all of the parameters, but examples as to how they are used in an actual project would have been good. There are short tutorials on the main features of the program, but these are generally restricted to singe effects. This book is probably for a more advanced user who is familiar with all the commands and knows how to use them to create a 3d scene, but would like a more detailed explanation of various functions in 3ds Max. Definitely well written though, and the DVD with the material and software described in the examples is great.

Amazing book for 3ds max learning and reference. Feb. 23 2007
By Dija - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just start reading 3ds max bible book. I never read any of Kelly Murdock's books, but I've found the way he presents and explain every feature of 3ds max very good and being as non technical as possible! It isn't boring to read and fun sometimes. I'll consider buying the author's books from now on!

Awesome read May 25 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book helped me a lot to become a much better 3d artist/animator. It is a absolute necessity for any budding 3DCG artists. The 3ds max 9 bible contains information for both beginners and advanced users who may use it as a reference.

Although I now have accquired the skills that is taught in this book I still use it as a reference when I'm stuck.

I'm a 13 year old male living in Perth, Australia.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has just about EVERYTHING. If you are like me and don't have the time to take another class on the subject and/or just want something for both referencing and detailed info this is it. I've bought several other books for 3D modeling but this is the only one I still use.

Perfect for those who know what they're doing to polish up on techniques and improvements to previous versions as well as complete beginners. The tutorials and images in the book give the reader step by step instructions.

All in all if you are serious enough to invest in 3ds Max 9 in the first place then this book is exactly what you need. Most of the others just help with conceptual work, not particularly useful if you already know what you want to do, this book WILL help you.
