Maya4 Fundamentals безподобная книга! Главная её прелесть в том, что почти все её главы проиллюстрированы видеофильмами. В книгу я смотрел тогда, когда хотел вникнуть в какую-нибудь деталь. Тут-то и возникает вопос: диск тоже дублировали? Если нет, тогда это форменное издевательство над ,,русскоязычными россиянами,, Это тоже самое, что сказать, что лучшей книгой будет Maya 4.5 Savvy (With CD-ROM) by Peter Lee, John L.

Editorial Reviews From the Back Cover Inside Maya is the only book on Maya that covers the entire production process from concept to completion. The authors are animators and modelers from some of the top animation studios in the business. Inside Maya covers the newest tools and upgrades to the program as the name "Inside" truly implies. This book builds a complete computer animated project from beginning to end in the Alias Wavefront Maya software. The book and companion CD walk the reader through a step by detailed step workflow. Going through the book, the reader gains a deeper, more relevant knowledge of how to actually design and complete a short animated piece. The guest authors are respected professionals in the design, production, and execution of similar pieces. Such a book has never been done in Maya and would complement the New Riders' Inside Studio Max 4 by Kim Lee.
