3ds max

im trying to learn it, but it is rather difficult. i was wondering if anyone else uses it? "and hoe can i go" "and hope i can go" about learning it easyer, i have a book the bible for it, but the modeling part it not quite explaind how i need it to be, it tells you what everything does - but not how to do it...

Practise. Once you know how each tool works then you just need to break down whatever you want to build into sections, and use each tool to build it. No book can really help, although of course there are lots of "building a basic thing" tutorials on the net. I'm sure Lynda do 3DS stuff too.

Of course it also depends what area you'd like to go into. If you wish to do DFX or Pixar style work, then you need to learn Maya instead.

I followed a few of the AutoCAD tutorials on this site and if the 3ds max tutorials are just as good they should help
