Introduction

Since my introduction to 3D software sometime in the last century, technology and practices have changed quite a bit. The calibre of CG has evolved dramatically across film, television and video games, moving ever closer towards photo realism. The arrival of new software, upgrades and overhauled interfaces mean that each year we are faced with a continually changing environment in which to meet our artistic endeavours.

Having worked across both 2D and 3D, I have had the experience of using software affiliated with both disciplines, but it is perhaps Photoshop that has remained the stable backbone of much of what I do. Despite the traditional upgrade each year, the interface and toolsets remain much as they did when I first used it. This sense of familiarity is always a welcome break from the elaborate tools and modifier panels typical in 3D packages and although being very sophisticated, Photoshop remains remarkably intuitive and concise. It is perhaps for this reason that it has become so widely used as both a painting package and as a texturing tool. Almost every games company and post-production studio will utilize Photoshop to some degree and as someone who once worked as a texture artist, this was my principal software. When I was asked to write this introduction, I began to consider the extent of its value within a 3D pipeline and how it has always occupied a supporting role.

From matte painting through to texturing environments, characters and props, Photoshop has proved an invaluable part of how we view CG in all fields. It has also been adopted by many as a post-production tool and a way of compositing and refining renders. There was a time when many 3D artists would rarely venture into Photoshop to finish or enhance their renders, and special effects were added in video post etc. To do otherwise was almost looked upon as cheating.

Nowadays the story is somewhat different, with almost everyone tweaking and compositing passes in Photoshop to some degree. There are instances where some artists will export flat shaded geometry and reserve the entire texturing process for Photoshop, as Aleksandar Jovanovic demonstrates later in this book with his Alchemist’s Chamber. In The Breakdown Gallery chapter we also get a glimpse of this in Neil Maccormack’s contributing image, which has been partially textured this way but also incorporates atmospheric effects, lighting and smoke. Of course these practices are severely restricted where animation is concerned, but in the case of production art, concept art and stills, it has proved an economical and effective way of achieving the desired results.

With the ever-growing complexity and scope of CG within the film industry, and the expansion of the games sector, artists are being put under increasing pressure to meet deadlines and complete work. Techniques used to save time and assist in this process are a welcome addition to anyone’s repertoire and Photoshop is a tool that comfortably fulfils such a role.

Throughout these pages we shall be shown an array of techniques used to aid 3D practices and streamline an artist’s workflow. From using custom brushes to develop a tangible design through to post-production, each author will share their experience and knowledge, revealing their industry-proven methods.

Ein hervorragend gemachtes Buch! Gerade für "Hobbykünstler" ohne einschlägige Ausbildung bietet das Buch eine Fülle an hilfreichen Ideen und Techniken, die allesamt detailliert beschrieben und nachvollziehbar sind. Auf diese Art ist es mit ein wenig Geduld und Übung auf jeden Fall möglich, seinen "Skill" zu erhöhen.

Was mir besonders gefällt:

+ Große Prints und detaillierte Schritt-für-Schritt Anweisungen
+ viele Beispiele
+ absolut nachvollziehbar und machbar auch für Hobbykünster
+ hervorragende Qualität

A fair tour of Photoshop's many usages for a 3D artist 1. Oktober 2011
Von Marque Pierre Sondergaard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoyed this recent overview of Photoshop's many excellent tools in different stages of a VFX or games pipeline.

I found the tutorials legible and interesting; You could tell that they were written by seasoned professionals and grounded in production experience.

I had 2 minor gripes with this book:

As a texture artist, I would like to have seen more chapters/projects focusing on proper texturing - not 3D paintovers. 3 3D paintover projects were more than enough, particularly since there are only 2 texturing proper projects/chapters (I am not counting the 2 complete projects, of which one only mentions texturing in passing). The 2 chapters/projects with a focus on 3D texturing focuses each on hard surface texturing or organic texturing. The hard surface texturing project was quite basic - as I am sure it was meant as an introduction to texturing as such. The organic/character texturing chapter used a model (as seen on the cover), which apart from the UV layout of the mesh, I would argue has more in common with the techniques you use in hard surface texturing. They are both good chapters, but there is still so much more to cover on texturing both hard surfaces and organic surfaces, that I would argue you could have cut down on the 3D paintovers and spent a bit more time on texturing. But, hey I am a texture artist, so of course I am biased.

The second gripe I have is that the meshes/models for the texturing chapters are not included. That is just poor. If I don't have the models as well, then including the textures in 2D form will not show me as much as I'd like. This cannot be a case of space constraints as all files are downloaded from the web anyway.

In addition to the above, the book of course contains a plethora of techniques for concept artists and post production (the majority of the book really).

Fantastic! 16. September 2011
Von M. Burkhead - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was really surprised at the quality of the book in every way, the content is inspiring, and relevant for people wanting to use textures for their 3d models or matte paintings. The book gives tons of techniques for you to start texturing your 3d models or matte paintings in no time. One thing that should be noted regarding the techniques used in the book from what I've noticed so far, is that most of it uses photo sourced content to create the textures and photoshop tricks. There's not much emphasis on painting textures which is a little bit of a shame. Although there are tons of other books on painting already out there, and it's easy to implement into this workflow. This is probably the best book on the subject I've come upon in the past few yrs, awesome job to everyone involved!

An Exceptional Guide 5. Juli 2011
Von Alex Bluesummers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Covering a wide range of topics, Photoshop for 3d Artists has a real treasure chest of techniques. Everything from dark, gloomy renders to clean product shots- I'm glad to see such broad coverage. Each page is around 60% images with descriptive text, so it's nice to see an illustrated guide on the topic. The binding is paperback which is a little disappointing but the pages are really glued in there, so it shouldn't come apart with regular use.

Here're a deeper description of the concepts covered with star ratings:
+ Pre-visualization,
+ Basic Painting,
+ Painting over 3d Objects,
+ Some Matte Painting,
+ Texturing and Map Creation,
+ Post-Production Color Adjustment,
+ Background Manipulation (with glows, heat-ripples, etc)

This is one of the books I'll keep on the short shelf near my desk. Highly recommended.

A useful guide to using Photoshop to enhance your renders 17. April 2012
Von SueL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I wanted a book like this for many years and I am glad that I have bought this one. The book includes a lot of useful techniques to enhance your renders. It includes many different articles by different 3D/2D professionals about previsualization and post-production. I especially liked the articles by Richard Tilbury which showed how to use different adjustment layers to alter the mood of the image, how to turn a render into an underwater scene, how to add fire, sparks, glows, and how to make a space background.

I agree with some other reviewers though that there could have been a little more emphasis on texturing and particularly on using brushes and other painting techniques. There are two chapters on texturing. One of them is about texturing hard surfaces in an alley scene and the other is texturing a fantasy character (the one on the cover of the book). Both of these chapters concentrate on manipulating photos. I would have liked to see some chapters on painting skin textures and other organic surfaces. I also would have liked to see a little more about adjusting the lighting and other aspects with the help of render layers and render passes, but there is only one rather short chapter on that topic. Most of the book deals with how to use photos in your post-production, even to the extent of substituting a lot of things that I would prefer to do in 3D. For example pasting parts of photos into your PSD file (like parts of buildings, textures, smoke, etc) and manipulating them to make them part of your scene. These are interesting techniques for sure and you can learn a lot from them, I just prefer to do some of these in my 3D program. But I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy those chapters, too.

Another small gripe I have is that the book does not come with a CD or DVD, so if you want to get some of the files, you have to look up the web address in the book, type it in your browser and download the files one by one. I also agree with the reviewer who mentioned that some of the pictures with text are a little small and hard to read.

All in all it's a very useful book land I am sure that it will be a great resource for many years to come.

Could have been a great book... 19. Mai 2013
Von David Singha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very deceptive and misleading. I am very disappointed at the lack of resources. As an example, not a single digital image of any object on the front cover is included. Plus some instructions are vague and incomplete. The book is mostly a ready only book and since the bulk of the material doesn't include digital files you simply cannot open it in Photoshop and try out some of the methods to see if you're doing it correctly. It was a waste of time and money for me.

Generously giving you two stars for effort.
