This guide was developed as part of our program to ease the transition of new or potential digital artists into the 3D industry for professional careers.

Today 3D and computer graphics are used in many of the great films (not just animations) to bring movies to the big screen like never before.  Not to mention those awesome console games and online gaming.  With 3D it seems that if you can imagine it, then it can be created (at least in the virtual world of 3D).  If you want to explore the possibilities of 3D for yourself, then you will need to become familiar with what 3D can do for you and decide if and how to become the next great 3D Artist.  You will find information in this guide to help get you started by introducing much of the general information and questions that most people think about before beginning their own 3D quest.  Our goal is to encourage each and everyone who reads this to enter some field in the 3D industry.  You can read the topics and issues covered along with an overview preview showing the layout of all of the pages in the guide below. Just starting out and don't know where to begin or what to buy? TOPICS covered, To 3D Or Not To 3D; what can I do with 3D? Digital Graphics; exactly what is CGI? Tools & Equipment; what hardware do I require for 3D? Endless Apps; which platform do I choose for my 3D work? Best Fit; what personality type am I; Builder, Painter, or Producer? Build It Or Buy It; should I make it myself or pay someone else for it? Piecemeal Or Publication; should I research the subject or purchase tutorials? Honesty Is Not The Best Policy; OUCH! How will I live with myself? Low-Key, High Alert; Eyes Open, Mouth Shut! Ask For Every Penny It's Worth? Overpricing seems to be the trend. You Can Do It All Yourself! Or can you?

Stock Images and Graphics
Clip, Crop and Scale Stock Images or Graphics Resources using The GIMP.  Often we just need an image to enhance a project for the web, a tutorial, or other important media. The reason that stock photo and resource images exist in the first place is that not everyone has the time, money or energy to become a professional level digital photographer and graphics artist. There are many sources of free imagery available online that can be used for both personal and commercial projects. The GIMP is an awesome image editor that features professional level features available in other paid products like Photoshop. This video will demonstrate how to use some of those tools to clip, crop and scale images that you have downloaded into something you can incorporate into your projects.

UV Tailor
Installation and Setup Guide
UV Tailor is a plugin for DAZ Studio 64 bit Windows that allows you to view and print the uvs for any model. This allows you to create new textures for existing models, matching them to the uv set used by that model. Plus it allows you to create textures for new models that you have created uvs for. It allows you to see how your uvs and textures will be affected by the subdivision process so you can make sure they will map correctly at the highest subdivision level. The main features are: - View / Print all models from early Poser models, all DAZ models - Victoria 1-4 up through current Genesis (3 at this point). For any model you can load into DAZ Studio, you can view the uvs. - View - Print all uv sets, not only the one currently in use by the loaded model, but all the sets available on the newer Genesis models - View - Print all Subdivision levels. Subdivision slightly changes uvs as they are smoothed in the Subdivision process. UV Tailor lets you check your textures against the generated high res uv maps. - View / Print with and without background image map. With the image, you can view exactly how the uvs match up against the image map currently in use. Without them, you have a template over which to create your own texture. - Correctly works with the new Genesis 3 non overlapping uv layouts. - Scriptable from DAZ Script so you can automate the selection of surfaces, uv sets, subdivision levels and export of uv images.
