Review Text

  • By Gerbrand Uiterdijk on 8 November 2011

    Some Authors have the capacity to explain somewhat complicated things in such a way that any person interested in the subject will understand it.Katrin Eisman featering Photoshop is such a talented Author.As for Maya 3D Erik Keller is a great example of being a gifted Author too.To get the grips on and mastering Maya 3D in depth takes years and years.Erik Keller has the ability to teach you the foundations and the more complexadvanced features of Maya 3D in a understandable manner.Nearly every aspect of the program is being discussed like: NURBS Modeling,Polygon Modeling, Mental Ray Lighting and Shading Techniques,Texture and Displacement Mapping, Maya Fluids, nParticles, Mel Scripting and so on.Some items are discussed more in depth than others.Anyhow this is the only book covering Maya 3D on the market to give youa detailed and profound understanding of the program.Both Intermediate Level and Advanced Skilled Users will be able to take advantageof this Great Book.
