is there a section on recommending any decent tutorial books/DVD's?

especially for shake.

i'm a designer based in Dublin and there's no courses run here on it, one in the UK.

looking for some help in how to tool up!

 

thanks

There really isn't much out there and probably the best tutorials are the ones that come with the shake documentation. You will get further with the docs than with anything out there. However, you will find the following:

 

Apple Pro Training Series: Shake 3

by Marco Paolini

 

Decent book to get you up to speed. Very basic however.

 

Apple Pro Training Series : Shake 3 Quick-Reference Guide

 

Have not seen this one. But the docs do an excellent job.

 

CMI Studios Shake DVD Traning Set

 

Was not too happy about these but you pick up a few things here and there. I would pass on these.

 

Gnomon has a new DVD entitled Digital Set 3: Rendering & Compositing

that makes use of Maya and Shake.

 

I should be getting this set sometime next week. I'll let ya know.

 

Not sure if I missed any others. Oh!

 

Digital Compositing for Film and Video

By Steve Wright

 

The Art and Science of Digital Compositing

By Ron Brinkmann

 

These books don't mention Shake but the solutions and techniques seem to be written exclusively for node based compositors.

 

Not sure if I missed any.

thanks for all that, trying to get up to speed on it all though there doesn't seem much knocking about. Much appreciated, let me know how you get on with that DVD.

thanks again
