Introducing Maya 6: 3D for Beginners

by Dariush Derakhshani

Brought to you from Maya Press, a publishing partnership between Sybex and Alias, this intro book is fully updated for the newest release of Maya. Here is the ideal initiation to 3D and Maya--an accessible and affordable tutorial that offers you a practical approach to learning Maya's core features. The full-color insert illustrates real examples created by Maya professionals. The CD includes 3D rendering and animation project demos, plug-ins, links to animation resources, and your own copy of Maya Personal Learning Edition software.

Author Dariush Derakhshani says:
     "Learning 3D software like Maya is a difficult task, so Introducing Maya 6: 3D for Beginners is written to be a _primer_ for anyone young and old to begin learning 3D and Maya. Using explanations as well as examples and tutorials, this book is written to be a launching pad to explore Maya from. All the major facets of Maya are introduced and explored to give the reader a headstart; as a beginning point to help build a solid foundation to move on from. It is best used as the first step of learning tools, and as such is perfect for 3D teachers to build a course outline around. I hope you will consider this book as a good place to *start* learning--or teaching--Maya and 3D."

Animation Magazine says:
      "If you're just beginning to dive into the world of 3D, this is the book for you."
