Hard Surface Modeling Techniques
I don't buy a lot of DVD's and I am between and newbie and intermediate ZB user.
-I think this a great video to have if you want to learn HSM. Mike does a good job of explaining how to get from A to Z with this design.
-The first couple of chapters go over how to set up your UI to be efficient. He goes over many of the tools that I did not know much about.
-He also walks you through how to make stamps and brushes. This info PLUS learning about how to use some of the trim and shape building tools are worth the price alone! (again, coming from an new/intermediate user)
-Please note that this DVD is a how to make your own mech. He does not go into how to DESIGN a mech. The design part is up to you.
- Lastly, he renders in Max, which I don't use. He does include the texture maps though.
- If you are thinking about getting this DVD, get it! Think about how much a class tuition would be at a university? Hope this helps someone else thinking about this DVD.
