If you look at those movie CG's and wonder how do they do that and want to be able do the same this is not the book for you, but if you want to get in to cg and want to learn more modest 3d scenes like the one below, I might just be able to show you few tricks. Main difference between Movie cg and home cg I would call it, Movie studios sue million times the ram and video ram plus CPU, gpu and bus power of your home computers. I am an independent publisher and I use only freeware software to do 3d art that I later use in my books and movies. All done in freeware software. I did some 3d meshes and scenes that I am proud of, retelling the suffering of ww1 battlefields and naval battles, examples that you can see at the fallowing book links.
