In an effort to improve my character animation output (and not wanting
to drop a grand on Character Studio), I just purchased MH3D. The power of
the program is obvious. And based on the limited number of animations
I've done on it thus far, I've made a sound decision. However, the manual
is severely lacking. That is, they've basically laid out which button
does what and then jump into tutorials that assume the operation all
makes sense to you.
I started out with 3D Studio rel 2 and currently own MAX. The
tutorials take you from knowing nothing about the program to being
comfortable in it's operation. And while they are overly simplistic, they
have to be. I know. We're talking about the difference between a $3000
program and a $200 program, so the comparison isn't really fair. I'm just
a little frustrated because I haven't figured out how to weld a patch.
Okay now that I've whined a bit, I'm feeling better. Are there any MH3D
user groups in the San Francisco Bay Area? Or even if there are any users
in this area who would be willing to help me out in this initial
confusion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
