Dip in your toe 14. März 2012
Von J-J-J-Jinx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book assumes you are a 2D motion graphics artists looking to learn some 3D. That's not really me - while I've animated stuff in Flash, I've spent more time working in 3D. Not too much animating in 3D, though, more just creating static 3D models, so I thought this book would be interesting.
The book IS interesting, because it doesn't assume you know certain things already. I learned about a bunch of software and what it does, like Cinema 4D and Zbrush. I'd heard of Zbrush before, I'd even seen video of something being created in Zbrush but I was kind of "wth is that?"
I also learned some of the 3D features of Photoshop, which being an old Photoshop dinosaur I really had no idea even existed.
Really this book just dips its toe in here and dips its toe in there and I think it's main purpose is just to help you get pointed in the right direction. It's not going to turn a 2D motion graphics artist into a 3D one, but you know how half the battle of finding something with a search engine is knowing the name or how to describe what you're looking for? This book may be the knowledge you need to know what knowledge you need and where to research further.

3 D is here for the average computer artist! 22. März 2012
Von Clark Isaacs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is an excellent item for the computer artist who wants to delve into 3 D and do it on the 2 D computer screen with out special equipment. Our college computer lab was very enthusiastic to receive this book and begin working with it as we have the latest technology there. Many of the items are for those who are experienced, but when you put the DVD into your computer and see the samples, it all comes to life. I would highly recommend this as a start to the next step in improving computer usage.

An introductory tutorial by illustrated examples + DVD for novices 27. Januar 2012
Von Eugene Tenenbaum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The ISBN 0240815335 (3D Motion Graphics for 2D Artists) is the simplest possible introductory step-by-step tutorial by illustrated examples starting from the basics for anyone also not familiar with 3D. The illustrated examples are often full or partial screen snapshots of the software programs being explained. The title shares many similarities with the introductory part of the industry standard "Inside AutoCAD", and it is equally useful. It is perfect for novices and those not mathematically gifted. The explanations are simplest possible and crystal clear. There is not much to read, but to look at the illustrations in color. Almost all tutorial pages contain several illustrations. The DVD contains examples to practice on while following book instruction. It also contains video instruction teaching techniques from the book. The book - as all published by Focal Press - is very well done graphically and soft-bound. Every illustration is perfect. The quality of printing on semi-glossy paper is superb. The covers are coated, stain resistant, and strong.
This book gave me a few skills I didn't already have. 16. März 2012

This book should be marketed as a book for aspiring television and film animators, who already know some 2D, and specifically who have access to certain software (However, he does mention a free program and that you can get 30-day trials to complete the tutorials in the book). It sort of burst my bubble just a bit when the author claimed that Adobe After Effects is the premier choice software for 3D animation. I have Adobe CS5.5 Creative Design Suite for digital design classes. Flash (which used to be Macromedia software) is the animation program in MY suite; not After Effects. But, I paid attention just the same. I've worked with Illustrator and Photoshop, and after figuring out a few things the author omitted (like which folder on the companion CD was the location of each file that we worked with.), I finally managed to do the exercises for PS and Ill. They were cool, and I learned some new tricks. I also realized that, by doing a search, the PS program icon for CS5.5 on Mac Lion must be right-clicked, and you have to click the check box to open the software in 32-bit mode to get access to a whole lot of features; and for this book it was the filter, "Lighting Effects". So, of course, my finding out that CS5.5 on Lion is a problem to begin with (regardless of the green light from Apple and Adobe to install it) is not the author's fault. At least this book led the way for me to find out now instead of later.

The author starts out with basics of 2D, 2.5D, and 3D, as well as tips on getting into the business he is in. He has researched some 3D and animation software, pros and cons, prices, for the benefit of the reader, which is always a plus.

I have worked with 3D, 2D, and animation, so I thought by the title that this book was for me.

For the purposes of not taking way too much time to do this review, I chose to review it based on the two tutorials I did do, I opted not to get into any 30-day trials, and based on how I read the book in it's entirety.

Perhaps I should have read more about the book prior to ordering it. Maybe the title should read, "3D Motion Graphics with X and X software packages: For 2D Artists Conquering the third dimension". That would be fair.

I love the style of Art the author shares with the reader. I am really into tutorial books. I enjoyed the tutorials I did. The book covers many tools of his trade. It also covers his philosophy of his trade. I am glad I got the book. Well-written, sturdy, many screen shots, much wisdom. Just a tad vague and presumptuous.
A helping hand while you cross the bridge from 2D to 3D 3. März 2012
Von Jerry Saperstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book is intended for experienced 2D artists who want to add 3D skills to their repertoire. Author Byrne is very clear that "3D is a lot more difficult than 2D". Second, "some knowledge" of Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and Illustrator is assumed by the author. In reality, knowledge of these tools is essential since a good chunk of the book, about a third, deals exclusively with Adobe products. I would suggest that an intermediate knowledge of these products is necessary to get value from this book. As Byrne says: "[w]e are assuming that you are a knowledgeable 2D motion graphic artist. This book does assume a background with the Adobe CS suite, mainly Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator , and Adobe After Effects." And he means a solid background - rank beginners need not apply.

Bill Byrne knows his stuff. His writing style tends toward the pedestrian, but he does communicate his points in a straight-forward way.

He begins, unsurprisingly, with a short explanation about creating the illusion of depth and then a summary discussion of 3D tools, which is pretty good. One thing that will impress the uninitiated: 3D software is expensive. But there is always the open-source Blender.

Next come a hundred pages or so of using Adobe tools to create 3D effects. Considering the widespread ownership or access to the Adobe programs, this will be probably be the most valuable part of the book, together with a chapter on 3D type effects.

A lot of the book will not be helpful to the general reader, for example, a chapter devoted to Cinema 4D Mograph tools. My budget and interest are too limited to warrant purchasing this expensive tool and my time too limited to deal with its steep learning curve.

I've read another Bill Byrne book and he has continued an annoying "feature": short, boring filler interviews with people in the field. School age students might find these motivational. I don't.

There are lots of illustrations and the typography and layout re good.

Overall, I think this is a good tutorial for someone with intermediate 2D skills who wants to add basic 3D skills. Lots of step-by-step instructions.
