I am a Graphic Designer trying to get my hands on some knowledge and experience of Flash & 3D Modeling (Maya/3D MAX). I would like to invest some time and money in learning these programs. I am trying to stay away from debt so not wanting college or private tutor suggestions. I would like to know a good beginners books and advance or progression books. What would you recommend me my fine feathered friends? Your suggestions are much appreciated - Thank You!!!!!
