    I have spent my own personal time making a very long issue of VTM's (Video Training Module's). In the complete issue I will walk you through step by step how to model a Beretta 9000.

    I use both visual and audio methods to tutor and created them on my home computer.

    Each VTM is compiled into a .rar file (http://www.rarlab.com/) and contains:

    Video Tutorial
    Image Refrences
    Final Production


    Refrence (Not Used In Production):

    [​IMG]

    Finished Work (All done in tutorials and rendered of camera):

    [​IMG]

    Programs Used: 3dsmax6
    Recorded: Camtasia Studio 2
    Codec: XviD
    Compiled: Vegas4

    Great videos bud, big thumbs up!

    But just as a note I do believe the VTM phrase is coprywritten by Jason Busby (owner of 3dbuzz.com) Of course your can still use it, just dont sell them with that name :)

    Cheers for these IchI, they are really great!

    Just one thing though, when you were doing one of the VTMs you lost the top toolbar with the rotation and scale buttons on, but you didn't show how you got it back....and i've done the same now lol

    Any chance you can tell me how you got it back?

    They are all uploaded now. I have changed the links for the others on all the other forums except this one. You can blame Citrus on IRC for that because he complained about me trying to find an admin to change it.

    I will get Majestic to sort it when I get home and hopfully he won't complain.

    extreamly well done man. Easy to follow, and a cool accent to boot. I still prefer starting with a box... easier for me to get depth done, as well as modify front/back and what not, but your method seems just fine :p

    well done!

    Thanks alot for the VTMs!!! This new method of modeling is very interesting. But I have a suggestion: You should use the option "Ignore backfacing" when you weld and when you do the smoothing groups, this way you woulnd select the faces on the other side of the model. Also, for the optimisation part, when you remove the symmetry edge, could you select the edges and press the remove button instead of target welding all the vertices one by one? At some point also, when you target weld some vertices, Oh yea, especially when you do the magazine at the end of the smothing group VTM and there is a mistake in the model, you could have marquee selected the region and use the weld tool, up the tolerence a bit and press the weld button. Finally, I know you didn't want to do a rendeting VTM but I think it could be nice to see how you do those clay renders with a ground. :) Thanks again for the VTMs ;)

    heh, i can't stand following along with VTMs in modeling... jsut is really screwwy to me.

    I'm watching it for techniques and shortcuts. (and IchI's voice, of course ;) )

    i found lots of shoutcut help (and random other things)... like "G" toggles grind (no more right-click show grid :p).

    maybe a stupid question but how do you make your point of view moving in the perspective view like you did?

    (Rotating and so on, all i can get together is dragging the model around with the middle mouse button...)

    hold [alt] and the midle mouse button, then just move your mouse arround... (the scroll ball thingy)

    try also presing [Crtl]+[Alt] and just [Ctrl] make life so much easier

    1) alt+mid mouse then move the mouse around
    2) bottom right corner, second icon on the bottom from the right. (circle with 3 vectors)

    Well Done IchI!

    Hey guys im new to this forum! :smoking:

    I have modded games before but i am a newcomer to modding the half life engine and obviously half life source, but im really interested to learn and to join the community so i thought i would try and learn how to model in 3dsMax. And thanks to IchI he's made that possible for me to learn with these well thought out VTMS.

    THANKS ALOT ICHI! ;) :angel: ;)

    Hmmm, I don't quite understand what you mean but it could be doing it for certain reasons. First of all make sure your view port says left in the top left hand corner. If it says user that could be the reason why it looks like a strange shape. Also the other proberly could be the fact that your not making a box :p also remember when you are making a box (I should have really made a plane) the box works in 2 ways. First of all you draw out the side of it. Then you drag out the length. So alltogether to make a box it takes 3 mouse clicks.

    Hope that can help you.

    If not make a screenshot and I will help you out.
