View Full Version : Im thinking of trying out 3dmax
07-09-2010, 12:47 PM
been toying with idea of trying 3dmax, though i dont hold out much hope for myself, almost cryed while tyring to figure out maya ( though i did learn i know far more swear word than i first thought). Though if id seen Greg's turtorial when i was trying it out i prob wouldnt have been so stressed out hehe
I was wonder if there any tutorials out there similar to maya tutorial. I really want to see if i can use 3dmax to enhance my 2d technique, more the background and 'camera' movement side of things.
Is this possible? my do i feel like a baby taking first steps towards animation hehe

I say go back to Maya and I'll help you with anything, video tutorials upon request. I had to use max at my last job but its so rugged for animation :( you will nevr be truly happy with max.

Thank you :) thought u may regret the offer hehe, Though i did once make a ball bounce:rotfl in maya. I think i just thought of 3dmax as it seemd the easyest option out of 3 prgrammes i was considering

here goes hehe
I'd like to be able to do something more with my background shots, I want to be able to put differing 'camera' angles such as swooping down over something or tracking camera inwards outwards etc with a smoother effect than with flash or after effects.
I just really want to bring backgrounds more to life and give more depth without (and hope i dont sound lazy) doing it the long old fshioned way of drawing every bit of 'camera' movement frame by frame.
hope that made sense:)

Sure did make sense :), do you want to use 2D background in maya or are you interested in 3D backgrounds?

ideally is like to combine bit of both. But which ever you think would be better for starting out with:)
