    Hello there
    Just wanted to start a thread where all 3d users can communicate and share their knowledge with each other

    P.S.:- I would like if administrators start a new section for 3d

    3Ds MAX

    Hi mad_gundam,
    I am a casual 3D Studio MAX user and i like ur idea. I have also worked on Maya and Blender. But some tips from professionals are welcome. I m very weak in Lightning and Mesh Editing. Can any body flash a light?

    well modelling is first of all very important as it is what u see on frame
    lighting is another imp thing as it sets the mood of scene
    i prefer poly modelling for doing just anything and in lightning well i am also a noob :) anyone try out www.3dtotal.com there are loads of tuts on lighting and modelling for max & maya

    I've worked with almost all the 3D apps out there, everything from AC3D to Softimage and I gotta say that 3ds max is the best, but just like every other tool, it has its limitations. Subdivision surfaces need to be polished a little more, and well, Maya rules in that.

    Lighting doesn't play an important role for me because I'm into real-time stuff, so the engine takes care of all lighting and shading computations.

    Nice to know that there are other people here who're interested in 3D. Like you suggested, a 3D forum would be neat idea.

    Really Really Kool ............

    Man this is really cool guys and gals (if there are any) ! i have just started learning Maya about one month ago. Still doing Modelling only (ho hum) :( Finished with Polygons and Subdivs ... Now Nurbs (save meeeeeee :shock: ) Coz i always wanted to go into 3D but as all of you know not much to learn in India 'cept from Arena but here in Baroda, have found a cool place " Digital Workstation" for all graphic thingies includin Maya, 3D Max etc etc. Really personalized attention. No books just Plain OLD PRACTICE PRACTICE and more PRACTICE. So will keep you all posted on whats up here and look forward too more discussions. Now i feel like i am a part of somethin. :p :D And lets create the CHAT ROOM and also a USENET group. Plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
