Its difficult to remember what learning 3D modelling was like before sites such as YouTube came along. Although just over 2 years old it is an invaluable source of information, indeed we rarely look towards textbooks nowadays as its much easier to learn modelling by simply watching.
Yesterday we looked at the book Google SketchUp for Dummies which has integrated 62 YouTube movies into a tutorial set that would of been unfeasible just a few years ago.
Embedded above is Chapter 1 of a series of tutorials on 3D Max hosted on YouTube by a user going by the name of prabinpebam. Prabin has 42 tutorials covering both 3D Studio Max and PhotoShop.
YouTube is becoming an excellent educational resource and we definitely don’t miss those days of learning 3D Max via expensive text books.
