Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adobe Photoshop for VFX Artists is a unique, in-depth guide to using Photoshop to achieve a specific goal. It is not meant to serve as a general bible or litany of functions. By incorporating a straight-forward, visual approach to Adobe's best selling software, this book provides readers with everything they need to use Photoshop within their own specific context. Although there are many Photoshop books on the market, there are very few that are targeted specifically to the 3D artist, and even fewer that are written by a movie industry professional. Having the knowledge of Photoshop to create specific images puts 3D artists at a great advantage. Any 3D artist has to use textures because on any render there are textures on a model. Understanding how to create textures and background paintings will allow any 3D artist to create better visuals. This book adheres to the high standards of the VFX world, but is still clearly understandable to the intermediate hobbyist. Adding even more value to readers, the companion Web site includes many downloadable images used in exercises and tutorials throughout the book.
