5.0 out of 5 stars
Amazed by Inside Maya 5.0, Dec 21 2003
As the artist who created the cover for this book, I was sent a preview copy, so I have had a chance to read it cover to cover. I have been working with Maya since the first beta (and named a "Maya Master" by Alias at this years Siggraph) and thought that I had a pretty good grasp on what this program can do and how to go about doing it. I was wrong. There were many times while reading this title that I said, "Wow, I didn't know you could do it that way", or "Maya can do that?!"
I wish that I had this book when I was first attempting to do my short films, it would have saved me a lot of time. It covers everything that you would need to know in order to successfully bring your ideas to reality. This book is definitely not for beginners, it is for the artist that is looking for the knowledge that will get them to that next level....
