Книга является отличным справочным пособием для всех кого интересует photorealistic rendering. В книге рассмотрено большое количество новых алгоритмов с реализацией на мета-языке (например дается subsurface scattering). Стоит отметить что Matt Pharr является редактором серии GPU gemstones от NVIDIA!

8. Select all of the front elevation linework and create a group called Elevation-Front. 9. , the blue ground line. You will need to make sure that the line you click on in the viewport to open the Align Selection dialog box is the actual line that represents the ground. 10. Close the Affect Pivot Only command. 11. Click on the Select and Rotate icon and then select the Use Pivot Point Center found on the Use Center flyout (2 nd icon to the right of the Select and Rotate icon). 12. Rotate this group 90 degrees along the X-axis so it’s completely visible from the Front view.
AutoCAD Setup After a few years of teaching 3ds Max, it occurred to me that an enormous number of intermediate level 3ds Max students have little or no working knowledge of AutoCAD. I imagine the biggest reason for this is that many 3ds Max users import linework in a different way than the way described in this chapter. Specifically, rather than spending time in AutoCAD cleaning the drawings and preparing the linework for a streamlined workflow, many users elect to import all of the linework from AutoCAD drawings and use this linework as a guide with which to create their models.
The ‘clean’ version of the site drawing. Notice that if I select and isolate the linework representing the roads, as shown in Figure 2-28, it is in fact just one continuous closed polyline. If I import this polyline in 3ds Max, I could simply add the Edit Mesh or Edit Poly modifiers and right away the roads would be completely modeled. The same line could also be used as the path for a loft or a sweep, and thus used to create the curbs along the side of the roads. If I were to isolate the lines that represent the mulch beds, retention ponds, sidewalks, pavers, or any number of site elements, you would see the same kind of good, clean, closed polylines that are shown in Figure 2-28.
