self-teaching 3d here! (yep, it IS hard but fun!)
I have a book of tutorials which is really great but is for Maya 4 complete, and i have maya 4 unlimited.
this is cool until they start running mel scripts to emulate the subdivs i have already on unlimited.
i haven't run the mel script, and it says i can us subdivs in poly mode but we are modelling an alien head, creating the eye sockets. What i am worried about is that their eye socket seems to have duplicated, whereas I am taking the approach of modelling half the head, then I intend to mirror it.
Will this work? Am I "thinking" in the right direction?
Also, can anyone give me some easy instructions on how to use/import a bitmap image to model from? (my book is ok but they supply all the images!) Tried to import>image etc but didn't work well with more than one image and am trying to model a car.....
