Starting with gMax

Recommended Posts

Hi allgMax is a great designer tool for flightsimmers. great things are possible. My first start was 2 weeks ago and I think it is 100 times more hard to start. If You do not get started the gMax0 version from FS2002 professional, better download the new version gmax12 from Decreethttp://www.discreet.com/http://hometown.aol.de/_ht_a/docmoriarty3/fs2002/Looking for guys who like to start with me or can help, I hope for E-mail tolaf@petercie.de or write to this forum.My first steps I have done with this tutorial. But sorry that is German language only.http://www.flusiwelt.de/tips/gmax/gmax.htmlmuch more have done the Trainsimulator designers (only German too)http://www.vmbollig.de/msts/tutorial/But for getting started You have lots of pictures. Never the less let us look for more tutorials and pages or let us make a starting tutorial for all the designers who want to start with me. I think together it is more easy.pitwww.petercie.dehttp://www.petercie.de/images/xxlaf.gif

Pit, Any questions - this forum and http://www.gmaxsupport.com. Temporary crashed, but will be back soon. Tutorials there are many and good out there, but do not miss : www.passion3d.com in format Divx . They are the best basic tutorials for gMax. The site is in French, but tutorials have no audio (which was kind of important for my "French"). Try to flip through the entire manual included with gMax Help. Even just the titles. The reason is to get familiar with full scope of program right from the start. It may seem nonsense, because as you noted gMax is very overhelming at the beginning. However, in my case it actually helped to establish first wide framework and then concentrate on the basics knowing already, that my knowledge about half of the program will temporary remain just - the titles.I also read book or two about 3dsMax. The most difficult for me was concept of texturing and multimaterials. However, with practise it got soon easier and modelling becames real fun. Have a lot of patience, and do not hesitate to ask questions.Ted
