Ojai, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2007
lynda.com, the company specializing in self-paced career and computer training in digital media and design, today introduced 3ds Max 9 Essential Training.
Covering the fundamentals of rendering, animation, and modeling, instructor Chad Perkins demonstrates how to push the limits of 3ds Max 9 for stunning effects. Chad starts with the application's basics, then goes on to discuss many of the key features of 3ds Max 9, as well as important principles of animation. He teaches users about creating and editing mesh, modifiers, architectural modeling, texture mapping, keyframe animation, rigging, basic kinematics, and much more. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"3ds Max 9 has a huge following. As a professional animation tool, it rivals far more expensive and difficult-to-learn 3D applications. Our training allows users to learn its features quickly and efficiently," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Gamedev.net gave this latest version of 3ds Max 9 an enthusiastic score of five out of five, stating it has one of the strongest feature sets in the industry. This new version, they say, is "faster and more stable, [and] the result is awesome." 3ds Max 9 Essential Training shows both new and experienced users how to fully take advantage of these features.
