This book and DVD package, part of Autodesk's Official Training Courseware, focuses on the new features in 3ds max 8 and how they fit into the overall workflow. Intermediate to advanced users upgrading to the new software version will need this information to get up to speed and back to work.
The book and training DVD are seamlessly integrated. On the DVD, an instructor leads the animated tutorials and visually demonstrates each technique in real time. The book clearly demonstrates each step and is a handy reference.
