3D Studio Max is the primary tool of professional 3D graphic artists and animators working in Windows 95 and Windows NT. (Official installed base is around 65,000; if you count pirated copies, the number is closer to 200,000) Art created in 3D Studio Max is everywhere -- on TV, in movies, in print advertising, in games and interactive media, and, of course, on the Web. Demand for training classes in the program at art colleges has been soaring recently, so the need is great for a concise, graphically oriented textbook -- in short, a Visual Quickstart Guide
