Illustrated in color throughout, this comprehensive text not only looks at the technical and theoretical aspects of becoming skilled at using the light tools available in 3D software, but also provides invaluable tutorials so you can explore these techniques in-depth.
Lighting is a core CG skill that makes or breaks a 3D environment. Providing all you need to master this vital aspect of CG, this comprehensive guide looks at the key concepts that can be applied in any 3D package.
Every ounce of theory is backed up with practical tutorials, using the free demo version of 3ds max supplied on the accompanying CD-ROM.

He is an award-winning, independent rendering and lighting specialist and an experienced journalist with published work in the Guardian, 3D World, CGI, Computer Arts, Creation and Broadcast Engineering News.Review:
"This book ... should be at the top of the list with Jeremy Birn's "Digital Lighting & Rendering". In fact, I now recommend this book over the former for my 3d students as it has more technical information. Good lighting techniques are paramount to good CG work - you can never know enough. This is a great book - don't think twice - buy it." Amazon.com reader
"This is an outstanding book, possibly the best on a specialised 3D discipline yet written... After you have mastered the basic operation of your 3d program this should be the first book you buy on the art of 3D work." Amazon.com reader
