"I consider myself a seasoned 3ds Max user, but I have always struggled with poly-modeling organic shapes inside 3ds Max. Todd Daniele explained several of the "missing links" for me. Without any hesitation I would highly recommend this book to anyone using 3ds Max that wants to immediately improve their modeling techniques." --Jeff Patton, Freelance Digital Artist
"While I personally feel like Todd may be giving a little bit too much away, his new book is the perfect companion for both intermediate and über-advanced modelers. Whether you're looking for a refresher on the basics or trying to take it to the next level, Todd's book is a must-read!" --Jesse Holmes, Freelance TD & VFX SupervisorFrom the Publisher:
Learn how to create professional models for advertising on TV and the web. Blending real-world experience and the technical aspects of poly-modeling, this book shows how to ultimately create content in a dynamic, efficient manner.
This collection of tips, tricks and techniques will give you the freedom to determine the edge flow and overall mass of your models through this free-form digital sculpting method.

Descripción Focal Press, 2008. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Polymodeling with Max Book Outline- Chapters 1. Introduction- What this book is all about, as well as a brief overview of the authors credentials 2. Modeling Types- We are going to cover all of the modeling options, as some will lend themselves later to the polymodeling process. Splines- Nurbs Patch Box Polymodeling: an intro to our preferred method of modeling - Features covered will include spline modeling, surface modifier basics. Creating a base mesh we can later apply polymodeling techniques to. -A brief discussion of the Nurbs modeling toolset and functions. -Patch modeling tools, usage and conversion to an editable poly mesh. We will build a basic mesh and convert so we can apply polymodeling techniques. -Basic Box modeling overview with a focus on the tools and techniques commonly used. Extrude, inset, bevel, chamfer tools will be introduced and demonstrated. As before we can use this mesh as a base for polymodeling techniques. -Polymodeling: an intro to our preferred method of modeling. A brief discussion on this technique, and the benefits of its use. 3. Polymodeling Basics-Techniques used to add detail to a model, various methods to move sub-object selections with precision. -Editable poly - Shift/Drag method will be introduced and demonstrated. Shift drag will be the basis of many of our model building exercises later on in the book. -edge and face constraints, usage and benefits. The constraint systems are a key element to our polymodeling workflow later on. -Inset, bevel, chamfer, bridge to create and form our model. -Sub-object Selection methods, conversion techniques to speed workflow. -edit poly modifier 4. Modifiers-Letting Max do the work for you------Information, as well as a demonstration of how allowing the application to do calculations can often result in a cleaner end product. -Bend Modifier, Taper, Spherify and other applicable object-space modifiers. A demonstration of how these modifiers will produce cleaner meshes. We will later model a detailed object in a flat state and use a modifier to give it a curved surface. 5. Derivative modeling and other techniques to speed up your polymodeling workflow--- We are going to cover the method of extracting part of a mesh to build another mesh, using repetitive geometry, and using the info from the last chapter to alter an existing model into something unique. -Detach element, detach polygons to create additional geometry from existing models. -edge constraints to shape and fine tune the new object -Shell Modifier to create depth and thickness to our models -Snap tools to align sub-object elements to existing meshes. 6. Theory and application--Not a very technical description, we are just going to discuss what works, and why it works, without getting involved in any information that may be confusing. -Edge loops, what they are and why they are good -Vertex proximity, how vertex placement influences the detailed areas of our models. -Sub-object placement-positioning and manipulation of all sub-object elements -mesh flow, directing a mesh flow through the use of polymodeling tools 7. You are in Control-Your mesh shouldn't dictate your final output- We are going to cover some common polymodeling mistakes, and the simple, and not so simple solutions to them. -Welding vertices to create smooth corners and transitions -Pinching and correction, steps to eliminate common mesh errors -mesh, loop and vertex density 8. Preparation-Tips to make your projects go smoother- Basic overview of references, applications, blueprints and other aspects that aid in the process. -Reference collection, and resources. Where to find refs, how to prepare them for optimal usage later on. -Setting up blueprints, mapping images to planes that are used as a guide for polymodeling. -Spline guides, we are going.
