3D Studio Max 3 Media Animation is an outstanding book for mid-level artists using Kinetix's powerful . I wish other books on character modeling and animation would be this clear and useful. Mr. John P. Chismar really sets new standard on tutorial book.

3D Studio Max 3 Media Animation is an outstanding book for mid-level artists using Kinetix's powerful animation software for motion graphics and animated logos. Many of the basic principles and techniques can be applied to other software packages as well. Full of step-by-step tutorials from examples that are glitzy, cutting-edge, and totally professional, this book describes in detail approaches to animated media logos from start to finish. Now I am waiting for more books by Mr. Chismar.

Most MAX users quickly discover that they must continuously participate in a learning process, in order to master and remain current with the program and its various upgrades, and one soon realizes that tutorials are an invaluable learning aid. However, one also quickly learns that, for every well-written tutorial you find (e.g. Jon Bell's wonderful books), you must wade through many others that are lacking in detail or content. Well, if you're looking for some really terrific lessons, which exemplify the art of tutorial writing, have I got a book for you! A few weeks ago, just before MAX 3 arrived, I found a collection of tutorials that I can honestly say are some of the best I've seen. They're contained in a book called "3D Studio MAX 3 Media Animation", written by John P. Chismar, and published by New Riders (ISBN 0-7357-0050-8) (Retail $49.99, but $39.99 at Amazon). This book will be of particular interest to those who are interested in learning the best ways to create and use animated logos and splash screens. However, even if you're not, there's still much more in the book that is of value to all users who want to utilize and master the new features of MAX 3 as well as those carried forward from previous versions. For example, for those who think that all there is to importing and using Adobe Illustrator files is to learn where the Import 'button' is located, you will quickly discover there's a lot more to learn. How many of us employ Motion capture in our animations or even know how useful a tool it is, even if we only have a mouse and a keyboard? Want to learn more about correctly lighting that new creation, or applying complex materials? The techniques covered are extensive, and are really too numerous to mention here. But I certainly must pass on some comments concerning the overall quality of these tutorials. In my opinion, the writing is exemplary, the tutorials are extremely well devised and laid out, instructions are clear, concise and detailed, and illustrations are plentiful. The author also offers additional information on why you should probably use one particular technique over another, or he suggests alternative approaches that will also work. All necessary files are supplied, including examples of alternative techniques, and all that I've used so far have worked flawlessly. In the past, the quality of the tutorials in some of the New Riders books has been questioned, but they've produced a winner with this one. And I know this testimonial may suggest that I have a stake in the profits or know the author personally, but I assure you that I do not. I just wanted to share my discovery with you, and say "well done, John". You've set the standard for others to follow. Buy this book; you'll enjoy it....................................Frank E.

Mr Chismar is to be congratulated - not only are his animations slick and pretty but his writing style is good, too. The book hit just the right level for me - it gave me ideas I could modify and use in my own animations (and lots of 'Oh - so *that's* how you do that' moments) and taught me new ways of thinking laterally... it really fired up my imagination. I was sorry when I got to the end - it's not that the book is lacking, but I'd love to see a sequel, showing more breakdowns and backgrounds to animations.
John, if you're ever in Britain, lemme know and I'll buy you a pint :)

3DS Max 3, a monster!. How do I go about learning and knowing everything ? Don't. Do the 4 completely cool, professional projects from scratch and you will build up a very healthy relationship with 3DS Max. Getting the project up and running is the major focus. The steps are very detailed, you cannot miss it. Little on "whys" and "what ifs" which is good, because, a lot of that clutters up "Inside 3D Studio Max volumes" and your head. The approach is what I like the best, "Do as the masters do it and the theory will come to you" rather than do all the theory and draw a blank before the storyboard. I love the book and I have only completed chapter 3 yesterday!
Note: Though Most of the things can be done in Max 2.0 and 2.5, the CD examples (at least till ch 3) are not loading in this versions.

Finally a book that merges great tutorial writing and impressive content. Going through this book, I was intrigued with every sentence. Not only did I want to read what Chismar had to say but I would learn things at random times. New techniques and tricks sprawl throughout this book, were at times I even felt a little guilty getting all this info for just a few bucks. Don't keep us waiting too long for the next one, John.

For me, there wasn't much new in this book but the way how well everything was explained made a big effect on me. The whole book is really about:"how to create and spin some logos with style". If you are doing some corporate or tv commercial animations, this is the book for you even if you are already talented 3D digital artist. This book shows clearly why 3D Studio Max R3 is so powerfull tool and how easy it is to make cool commercial animations. You really don't have to be a rocket scientist to learn Max. The tutorials are very well made and the output from tutorial is outstanding. It really shows to you how cool stuff you can do in very short time. Everything is explained well and there isn't any gaps in the turotials like some other books do have. I recommend this book for people who are studying some new media or graphical design.

Ok, enough said on this amazing book full with clear explanations and samples. Compared with other 3D Max books I bought (7-8 books so far) this is a well organized and planned book from the real master. I wish other books on character modeling and animation would be this clear and useful. Mr. John P. Chismar really sets new standard on tutorial book. Now I am waiting for more books by Mr. Chismar........hm...still waiting......waiting... Give me more~
This book literally launched my CG animation career. I later took a class in CG animation and modeling and the tutorials in this book were in that class. Its was an excellent class, since it helped you learn the book's content is covered in 3 weeks instead of 2-3 months of night time after work animation. But this book is $30 not $2k.
What a great book. It does assume you know the basics, so learn the basics first and then dive in head first.
