Mastering 3D Animation
Allworth Press, 2000 - Computers - 333 pages
Illustrations and step-by-step instructions show animators at all levels how to create professional, studio quality 3D models and animations in this guide. It covers the fundamentals of NURBS and polygon modelling and animation, animating with deformation tools, special effects, modelling human features and figures, lighting, surfacing, expressing emotion with facial animation, animating action, composition and cinematography. Instructions and exercises are provided in a non-software and non-platform specific format to encourage readers to experiment with their own technology. The book includes hundreds of illustrations along with models and there are sample animations on the accompanying CD-ROM.
