Anyone use lynda.com?Is it worth it? I have spare time and money and want to git good with 3dsmax.
Use the time to practice and the money for pizza.
>>509901I still have a lot to learn about 3ds max. I.e. maps textures and unwrapping are pretty much a mystery.
>>509902you just jave to un-wrap the boject and then later save the map as a jpeg or something
>>509895Lynda.com is one of the easiest places to find basic information about a piece of software. Use it to learn the basics (maps, textures and unwrapping all fit the bill) and then practice your ass off.You can try it for 10 days free right now. Do that first. You might not even need to pay after, if all you wanna learn is Max.
Pro tip: if you get a library card you can use it to access lynda for free.
>>509958Seriously!?How?That would be inconvenient but good to know
>>509963I am now worshiping you
Can i hijack this thread for a questions thread, instead of making a new thread? great. I have some objects in Maya on non integer rotations, and i froze transformations a while ago thinking they were at 15/30/45 degrees. Anybody know of a way to return them to an integer rot. value? >Pic related
>>509963i tried it did not workdo i need to create an account?
>>510002just looked into itonly some librarys have iti will buy a Charlotte mek card sub and still save money
>>509986Some people would rather not steal.
>>509974you can't if by "a while ago" you mean several history wipes.
>>509895after 4+ hours i got this from lynda.com
>>510058using free trial then getting library card to get lynda for "free"
>>510058What a waste of perfectly good time
>>510060Are you the same guy going around in all threads and raging at anything ?
OP get digital tutors if you gonna buy one of thous subscriptions. at least digital tutors teach you how to make decent stuff. lynda is a joke. if u have a lot of money, get gnomon or eat3d DvDs
>>509895It's good for low-mid level stuff
>>510070I hope they never fully integrate DT into the cancerous website of plurasight. Finding stuff over there is ass-backwards.
>>510072Why does everyone hate it?
>>510070Will try the eat3d vids when I start getting good thx
>>509986when is the registrations opened for its forums?
>>510074DT's website is so much more intuitive.Also, change.
>>510121Holy shitDigital toutors has so muchA little overwhelmingI will pay for themBut I will stick with Lynda.com for a few more days of free shit till I get my paycheck.
>>510175I am almost done with the lynda tutorials.They helped me learn a few usefull trouble shooting fixes And other basic things.I got what I expected.
Many local libraries offer Lynda.com access to their patrons, but not all. Check your local library and see if you can get it for free!
>>510541I checked closest is Charlotte Mecklenburg library i.e. not in my area code... long distance card cost money. But not nearly as much as paying for lynda
>>509902Wait until the 1st or 14th of a month and get a cgpeers
>>511047Thanks for reminding me, it's coming up.
