3-D Starter Kit for Macintosh enables you to learn about the exciting world of 3-D on the Macintosh. With the ever increasing power of hardware and 3-D applications, even novice and amateur computer users can make remarkable 3-D graphics. We have carefully crated this book and disc to enable you to both learn about 3-D graphics and to actually make some of your own.

The 1st download is 3-D Starter Kit for Macintosh.
The 2nd download is the 3-D Starter Kit for Macintosh CD that accompanied the book.

My CD has a rather severe slice in it, but I was able to use Toast to do a Disc Recovery-enabled image and it appears to be in order, however some data on the disc may be bad.

Macintosh 3D Workshop
A full-color interactive guide to lighting, surface qualities, texture and environment mapping, rendering and animation. Images and examples from the book are reproduced in color, along with not-found-anywhere-else illustrations and interactive lessons about key 3-D concepts.
See how multimedia and 3-D really work together.

Alpha Channel BBS client
This connection client will automatically log you onto the Alpha Channel BBS, the on-line support forum for the 3D Starter Kit. If you’d like to e-mail the author, or find out the very latest on what’s going on in Mac 3-D, The Alpha Channel’s the place to do it. If you’re looking for something on this disk, such as the latest demo of a particular 3-D application, but you can’t find it, The Alpha Channel may well have it ready to download. If not, you can certainly e-mail the author and request it.
Requires a modem.

Absynthe’s Power Tools
These are Chris Bernardi’s outstanding tutorial guides for getting the most out of Infini-D. These tips are applicable to almost any 3-D work. Chris has graciously granted permission for the tips to be included on the 3D Starter Kit CD-ROM, please join me in thanking him. You can reach him as “Absynthe” on America On Line.

Models
Models used to created many of the illustrations in the book are included, as are samples of digitized 3-D objects from Mira Imaging and Illustrative Impressions. Models from the book can be opened with the try-out software also included on this disk.
File formats include DXF, RIB and the native formats of applications used to create the files.

Textures
Every 3-D users needs more seamless texturess, bump maps and effects maps; powerful 3-D images also call for environment maps and high-quality backgrounds. The disk contains three collections.

Commercial demos
These are try-out versions of commercial software that let you do everything but save your work. Many 3-D programs, and a handful of supporting programs are included.

•••

Shareware/Freeware
Shareware and Freeware applications and utilities to make your 3-D work easier. If you use the shareware applications, you are obligated to pay the creators their required fees; doing so will help ensure a future supply of greate low-cost software.
