Basic Tutorial
show user profile  Paradice
Hello, I'm completley new to 3D Max and i've downloaded a few tutorials which seemed of quality but still i'm not sure what can give me the best walktrhrough for getting into the software. I'm looking for proffessional tutorials in order to get used to the program, the basics'd be out for creating Body's at best because later i don't really wanna go for Architecture e.t.c

it doesent matter what type of objects or tutorials you start with, the basic modeling disciplines are the same for any type of object. Even tho there are different paths from dragging that first box to a 10k poly cyborg ninja, you'll soon find that the best way often combines many techniques and its useful to get familiar with all of them.

Didn't you already ask this????

Several suggestions there.

[EDIT] Here is my suggestion.... again...

F1 on your keyboard. Will give you a beginners step by step on pretty much all of the basics. I always suggest them before you try any of the online tutorials. These will even teach you where to find the different commands so you're not scratching your head trying to find things.

Yes, my internet sucked so i accidently posted twice (and just can't delete the other post for some reason)

Well, I'm about to try some. Before that i thought i could immidiatly start with a recommended tutorial so i can avoid watching plenty, without much succes. I wanted to start with lynda's Max Essential Basic training. I've already seen those of the programm itself, but they are certainly not enough for me. I also got the 3D Max Bible, in order to up some ground information.
(So what else is there what could really help for starters ?)

I've been told numerous times the max bible is a rearranged help file.
You want to try recommended tutorials but ignore all recommendations and go buy a book nobody ever recommends.

If you finished all the tutorials that come with max, show us what you did, then go and try to make something by yourself, post the progress, get the advice

I of course informed myself about getting the Bible but its more of something i can check out a little and less something i'll use as a tutorial.

Anyway, the tutorials which came with the software a little to less if i wanna create good animations, characters e.t.c

I just thought that some good basic training tutorials which are recommendend can help me get faster into everything i need to learn. I'd be nice to get the best essential training for me.

The best essential training is to just open max and create something.
But suit yourself
