Ok, I know it’s not the best in the world but I like it. I used 3ds Max, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro and just a little Shake to fix little problem with some missing background. This is my first project done with 3ds Max, I’ve been learning about it with the help of some books and Lynda.com which is a great site if anyone hasn’t been there. It was a fun way to learn about UV texture mapping, modeling and camera control. I did add film grain with Sapphire and it made it look pretty cool but the compression killed it. Oh well.

If I wanted to spend some more time on this I would model out the box better so it actually had flaps. Also I would blur out the BG with some depth of field settings. I’d like to learn to do that. I didn’t use motion blur because it made it much more difficult to read any of the box when paused. I suppose you could keyframe it? Well that’s most of my disclaimers. Anyway, just wanted to show it off to give someone a laugh. It’s my tribute to a pot smoker who can probably hold a bong hit longer then anyone!

Anyway, please post a reply and let me know what you think. Like it or not let me know. Any tips or good things to try with 3ds? Thanks.
