    Wink 3D modelling help

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have been 3D modelling for a couple of years, but have never learned anything about Sun and Sky Simulation, lights, shadows, materials, and about walk and fly, and the online tutorials I have found haven't included those subjects. Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial please, or let me know where I can get hold of some good sample drawings that have some or all these attributes I can look at and learn from? I currently use 2008, so can't use drawing created on more recent versions.

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Welcome to the forum.
    This is definitely not my field of expertise, in fact I know nothing at all about it, but I suggest you look for tutorials on RENDERING rather than modeling.
    Be patient, I would expect some of the rendering guys will stumble onto this, and may have some specific suggestions for you.
    Good luck.

    I just went to the tutorials section on this forum and did a search for RENDERING TUTORIALS and a whole bunch of stuff came up,
    looks like a great place to start.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.
