AVFX Textbook Sale 2013
« on: August 21, 2013, 06:56:37 AM »
Contrary to popular belief, academics are not the diabolically wealthy estate barons who can amass their fortune by stocking an infinitely majestic library with unlimited books. This tragic restraint is fantastic news for anyone wanting to possess their exotic tomes when the shelf space runs out. As you can guess, Iím about to say farewell to a recent selection of core textbooks employed in the Animation and Visual Effects degree on a first come, first served basis. Feel free to compare the sale prices to anywhere online and see what a bargain these books really are. These books can be picked up between 10:00-12:00pm Thursday 22nd August when I'm in my office.

Good luck!  ;D

Would it be un-lecturery of me to call dibs on the 'Adobe Photoshop CS6 Classroom in a Book' book?  ;D

I would love to put my name down for the Matchmoving: The Invisible Art of Camera Tracking please.

I can grab it the first day back after the non-contact period, or if there is another day you will be at the uni and don't mind me interrupting you for a moment, please let me know. Thanks Hages :)

Okay, this is the final offer before the sale goes outside of the course. These books are essential texts for anyone doing VFX105 (Introducing Autodesk Maya 2013), VFX105/VPA319 (Advanced Maya Texturing and Lighting) or elective subjects (Adobe Illustrator CS5 Classroom in a Book) now or next year. So if you donít already own these books and wonder why your work looks so amateur; hereís the solution! Students can approach me over the next days but donít delay as these books can make a HUGE positive impact to the quality of your final images.
