Jarrod Hasenjager has created a great video on materials and shaders using HtoA and alShaders. More material studies here.
If you are using Windows, I highly recommend using Sticky Keys. It saves you having to make difficult hand movements that can contribute to RSI.
If you are looking for some incredibly inspiring character work, then I thoroughly recommend you have a look at Brett Sinclair’s work. Some stunning likenesses there rendered with Arnold.
I thoroughly recommend the use of f.lux. It has really helped me reduce eye strain when looking at the computer. Its also useful if you are using the computer in the evening when blue light can affect sleep patterns.
See whats new in MAXtoA 0.80 !
I was very surprised to see my work with Arnold featured on the front page of CNN.
A simple tutorial that uses some MAXtoA shaders to adjust the colors of some sprinkles on a donut can be found here (MAXtoA).
