3D World

I bought the very first issue back when I was a novice. Being a professional artist and vfx supervisor I'm about 1 hour away from introducing a classroom of 60 University students on the University's first 3D course. I couldn't be more proud of the publication. Reviewed Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Excellent

This mag covers all major CG software packages, including 3ds Max, Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop, After Effects, Cinema 4D and Vue." Great for experts or beginners. Reviewed Sunday, July 7, 2019

A great all around resource.

My rating is 4 stars because they don't cover much outside of the Autodesk and Adobe competitor software. That being said you will stay up to date on what companies are doing with the software you will have a fresh portfolio/demo reel to present. You will find a lot of useful tutorials (provided it's Autodesk and Adobe that you use) but you won't find enough on competitive software like LightWave 3D, Cinema4D(they added more tutorials), Blender, RealFlow, Houdini, any matchmoving software (PF Track, Syntheyes, etc.), and anything by Foundry, the exception being their Nuke compositing software.

They do, however, have wonderful articles on how shots in major films were done, great industry insight from pros, wonderful tutorials by well-known 3D artists, software reviews, and occasionally software discounts. They have great advice on getting started in the industry but I have yet to see one article on pay negotiation. Oddly that's the only thing industry pros seem to be silent on. Other than that you get a large amount of training material without paying for the subscription service at a site like Lynda.com or Pluralsight (formerly Digital Tutors). If you can find it locally pick it up and thumb through a copy. It's not for complete novices since they assume you do have access to very expensive software and a setup that will run it. They occasionally have Blender tutorials but as a free 3D program you are best served by going to their forum.
