2D/3D animation post #1  quote:



I'm totally new to this field, but I have a great enthusiasm for it and I see the potential for where it will go in the next 5 - 10 years. I want in now, but I'm not ready to go to school for training.

I want to know, are there any good free training and tutorial websites out there for Maya PLE, Flash MX 2004, 3DS Max 7, Lightwave 8, SoftImage XSI, and all the other big names in 2D/3D design and animation out there, that start FROM THE BEGINNING and walk people through the steps involved in basic character design/modelling? Can anyone direct me to these websites?

I'm mainly trying to focus on Maya PLE, Photoshop, and Flash MX 2004. I wouldn't mind some Dreamweaver MX 2004 help either, but for now I'm trying to focus on the art programs.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

"free", huh? I'll pass your question along to my 3D buddy and see what/if anything he knows of along that line.

Free is always my first choice for learning Not that I'm always gonna get detailed info, but it's always the best start, even if it only gives me a base of understanding for some paid lessons in the future. But, if possible, I'm looking for training that will allow me to get going on some respectable level.

I've tried finding stuff on my own, but I'm not getting as far as I'd like, and I don't know anyone in the industry that could give me pointers on the software or direct me to quality free lessons...

Thanks for checking into it, Sean!

My buddy's response:

Here are some training DVDs for most of the programs you are looking for. Once you find one you like I would search ebay. That is where I have purchased all of mine. Then I would go to www.studica.com and you can purchase those programs for pennies if you have a student ID.
