RE: New 3D training coming in late July
"Modeling with MODO, Volume Five - Problem Solving" will be available on Monday, July 29th.
Those of you who have already pre-ordered it will be receiving an email by late Sunday night or early Monday morning, with the info you need to directly download it. For those of you who haven't already seen it, the preview page is at [link]http://www.mikejamesmedia.com/mwm_05.html[/link]
Total content is about 1.58 Gigabtes, with a little over two hours of dedicated video, combined with many pages of information, sample renders, shorter embedded videos, etc.. (Like my other tutorials, it's set up like a web site, so you can review any part at any time.)
I've also included several files. Those include a small library of "everyday" materials that render fast, a file illustrating another workaround for certain boolean operations, a rigged file showing my vehicle lighting system in action, and another file showing a rigged exhaust effect system, which doesn't require volumetrics.) All these things work equally well in MODO 601 or 701. (and most will work on earlier versions as well)
Special thanks again to those who already pre-ordered this set. I hope you all have fun with it.
