Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

I have looked all over the internet for a decent book on learning maya for beginners. I have already bought "The Art of Maya", after reading about it on variuos websites, considered it a given. But now i want the book that will actually teach me how to use maya, just one book. Ive looked at Dariush Derakhshani 's "Introducing Maya 6: 3D for Beginners " but was sceptic becuase of the price , i have also thought about Alias's own "Learning Maya 6 | Foundation". The tutorials looked weak. I Searched all over the internet for reviews, but all i could find are 2 sentence, one sided, descriptions of customers experiences with the book.But could not pick one or the other, if there is another book out there under 50$USD, then PLZ post Soon.

Thank you so Much!!! user added image

I just bought Introducing Maya 6: 3D for Beginners a couple of weeks back and just finished all the modeling sections. I think it's a pretty good book and I like how the author wrote it. It's easy to understand and follow what he's trying to get across.

I've dabbled in 3D for a couple of years so this book is perfect for one that's ready to plunk down and start learning 3D with Maya.

Some people in my computer class were reading the Art of Maya, the kids who i thought would maya in their life (heh-heh) and they were doing animation, I mean they cant model..but ya.

I have a budget though, just spent a ton of money on rock climbing gear user added image
