New DVD Release! Character Skinning - Skinning A Low-Res Character For Animation

Eat 3D Blog
Product Information:
In this DVD, JP Self takes you through the process of skinning an animation-ready character from head-to-toe. He goes over how to fit the biped to the mesh, using the weight tool to adjust the folds in those tricky areas (such as the hands, shoulders, and pelvis), mirroring the vertices from one half of the character to the other in order to achieve that professional outcome, and even resizing the character after the skinning is complete.

New DVD Release! Low-Res Character Production - Constructing A Character For Next-Gen Games

Eat 3D Blog
Product Information:
In this DVD instructor Adam Schuman walks you through the entire process of constructing a low resolution character worthy of any "next-generation" game. Follow him as he shows you his techniques in exporting the high-res model from ZBrush, reconstructing the low-res meshes, creating the UV's for all of the meshes, baking out all of the maps (3ds Max and xNormal), creating all of the textures, using real-time viewport shaders, and rendering out the final for your portfolio.

3ds Max 101 Video Review by NYC User Group

Eat 3D Blog

Great review by the guys at the NYC 3ds Max User Group.

I have no problem recommending this training product to anyone who wants to get familiar with Max. It’s impossible to cover every feature in Max in one product but in ‘Autodesk 3ds Max 101’ with Eric Maslowski at the helm we get a great grounding as well as a look at some of the more advanced features in this program.
