Animation and 3D Modeling on the Mac introduced novice animators to basic principles of creating 3D objects and using them within animated scenes. The same authors go to the next step, in Animation Tips and Tricks for Windows and Macintosh, leading the user to more advanced animation techniques and expanding coverage to include Windows programs. A CD-ROM containing software demos and sample files is part of the new package.Most effects and pizazz in animation are derived from creativity in using the tools at hand, not from expensive software packages. Animation Tips and Tricks for Windows and Macintosh shows graphic artists how they can produce professional-looking animations using programs they already own. The book's step-by-step procedures cover techniques for working in Photoshop, Kai's Power Tools, Poser, Extreme 3D, and Infini-D, as well as high-end software such as Electric Image, 3D Studio Max, LightWave, Premiere, After Effects, and Strata Studio Pro.
