  1. Hi Jamie,
    Just wondering if this book would cover Urban Architecture , just like the picture you have in the main page.

    Does this book cover up tutorials from modeling to post production?

    If yes then I intend to buy your book.

    1. Hi Marium,

      Thank you very much for your input here!!!
      The book features a day, and a night shot of exteriors and the interior depicted in the book cover (day and night tutorials).

      Furthermore, the book doesn't cover modelling as such. However there are essential tips on bringing models from Autocad into Max; tips on creating an accurate model from cad drawings in Max; numerous other tips and tricks; etc.
      All the above mentioned tips and tricks can be found in Chapter 5 !!

      After chapter 5, the subsequent chapters are detailed step-by-step tutorials...with further tips & tricks thrown into the mix occasionally!

      Finally, as mentioned in the table of contents of this article, the book covers pre-production; production and post-production!
