The 2nd new updated edition of Jeremy Birn's Digital Lighting & Rendering (03-21316312, $50.00), a definitive lighting text, will reach photographers and computer graphics artists alike, covering all the details needed to understand how to use 3D applications to maximum effect. Learn how to paint textured details, use dynamic range images, and render in multiple passes for better control. George Maestri's Digital Character Animation 3 (0321376-005, $50.00) provides new artwork to pair with animator and writer George Maestri's insights on the theory and basic techniques of rigging, walk-cycles, lip-synch and more: all the elements which bring an animation to life. You don't have to have a prior background in digital animation to appreciate this guide, either: chapters offer both the basics of modeling and animation and progress to more advanced levels of applications and characterization, so all levels of users gain insights.
