Take your 3D Modeling Skills to The Next Level
(PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. last week released its Character Modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max Tutorial, a training course focused on the tools and techniques of modeling 3D figures. Though it is based in Autodesk 3DS Max, the course content is not software specific and can be applied to any 3D modeling software environment.
3D modeling refers to the process of creating a mathematical representation of a three-dimensional surface or object, for instance most figures found in modern video games and animated video. Modeling is part of a workflow for creating 3D animation that also involves processes of rigging the movements of the character and finally animating the models.
InfiniteSkills' Character Modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max Video Tutorial teaches all the skills, concepts, and techniques necessary for creating life-like, highly detailed and anatomically complex figures that are ready to be rigged and animated.
Course author Brian Mennenoh has been working in 3D modeling for more than twenty years. After earning a degree in fine art and graphic design, he began applying his interest in art to digital animation. Now a faculty member at Milwaukee Technical College, his teaching focus is on 3D modeling, rigging, and texture art.
in the Character Modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max Video Training - DVD, Mennenoh focuses on the practical tools and processes common to all 3D modeling programs. The course is designed around the human form, with Mennenoh teaching students to model the details of human anatomy. For instance, some chapters cover areas like the chest and upper arm regions, or thigh, shoulder, and lower-back musculature. Other chapters cover high-detail areas of the jaws, eyes, nose, and hands.
After completing the project in the tutorial, students will have a final product that is ready to be passed on to a rigger and animator for production in a hypothetical video game.
Free demo videos and a full list of course contents can be found on the Character Modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max Training DVD - Tutorial training page on the company website.
InfiniteSkills offers the Character Modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max Tutorial either as a DVD or a direct download from the company website at a retail price of $99.95. InfiniteSkills tutorials are compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems. Shipping is available around the globe. Additionally, InfiniteSkills tutorials are supported by project files which correspond to examples in the videos.
