This DVD is Region Free and made from a DVD-R format. Some older DVD players have trouble booting this format, but I have tested it in countless players and PCs without problems. All my testers were able to play the DVD. You will need a PC with a DVD in order to access the Scene files and scripts. If you have problems with the DVD-R format, I ask that you please find a compatible player. At this time it's the only format I have available.

Animation Tutorials
Want to learn how I made LOR? Here you can examine in great detail how some of the shots were created. What you will see and hear is me working at my computer and re-creating the effects that most animators have been asking me about.

Here is what you will learn:

Procedural Clouds – Create a sky full of thick 3 dimensional animated clouds using only 3dsmax and no other plugins. Scene files are available on the DVD

Lighting- Learn how to create soft lights and shadowed ambient lighting that renders fast and beautiful without the use of a 3rd party renderer. Scene files and scripted plugins are available on the DVD

Water Worm – Follow along step by step and learn how I made the evil eyeball eating water worm from Rocketpants. Scene files are available on the DVD

Introduction animating with Maxscript
- Learn step by step how to make hundreds of objects animate with a simple script. Scene files and scripts are available on the DVD

LOR Centipede- Examine how I made a robot centipede walk up a tree, jump on to a green birthing pod and coax a baby to excrete itself out into the world… all with Maxscript. Scene files and scripts are available on the DVD

LOR Crowd Animation- In LOR, I created a very complex crowd animation system using Maxscript. It was almost too complex to explain so I put the whole system on the DVD for you to examine and learn from. Scene files and scripts are available on the DVD
