Thumbs up DVD!!!!

Hi, this is my first post.

Got my DVD on Sat morning, WOW! He makes it look sooOOoo easy.

I have just about every tutorial on the web but none as clear to use as this. He actually makes it look like fun instead of a choir.

Will more DVD's be coming out showing how to rig it up for animation?

BTW, I'm totally new to modelling and I'm finding it so frustrating. I'm not exactly a great artist so I'm not good at creating reference drawings, does anyone have any tips on this matter?

Take care, all.

Mark.

Mark glad you like the dvd, and you are learning a lot. Its important to me to make my tuts easy to follow and as easy to understand a possible.

There are plans for more tuts....

The reference issue can be tough there are a lot of sites on the web that have great reference just do a google search to start.

the dvd was sent via royal mail so it will be posted straight through your letter box.

The helecopter is not on a dvd, but wil be in the vip area, if however you want on a disk then you can of course add it to a custom disk and get it sent to you.

It will be available this week

I received mine today. I'm very happy. I have a quick question. I started setting up the project, and scene file as I usually do, and I realized that you used that image plane/geometry plane technique again.
I usually set mine up not using a poly, or nurbs plane, but attached to my front, and side cameras with each of those cameras only seeing it's attached image. Is it going to be easier using your technique for your project, or should I have no problems doing it the way I usually do with the image plane setup I normally use?

Using geometry planes is less taxing on the cpu, however.
