Default Got my DVDs'...1st question...

Hi,

I got my T-rex and Organic Modeling DVDs today and am quickly previewing the T-rex one. It seems great so far although it is a tad blurry.

I am wondering why Kurt chooses to create planes and apply his images to them via Hypershade rather than using the image plane option in the viewports?

I only ask, because my Digital Tutor DVD's beat yours to my house, so I have been following them for a few days and this is what they do. I am eager to jump into the T-rex, but I will finish what I have first and then dive in to yours.

I say that this is question #1, because I am sure I will have more since I am a noob to MAYA and nearly a noob to 3D in general.

I eagerly await the Texturing DVDs that I hear you have coming as well.

Thanks

Thanks for supporting Sm..

For the question I just perfer to set up my images that way, both setups work basically the same as far as work flow.

using geometry is less taxing on the hardware, though, and they're easier and more user-friendly to position in the scene.

IMHO anyway...
