    I’ve tried to buy the digital versions, but I get the impression that it’s only available in the UK iTunes store which won’t let me buy. Is that the case? I’m in Canada.

    Thx

    Hi 3d artist – i looks like you picked up your game – more maya tutorials the better – great mag heaps more content. speaking of content the disc that comes with issue 36 states on the front of your magazine and within that –

    ” Our Masterclass focuses on creating concept cars in Maya and also comes with nearly 7 hours of video tuition packaged on the disc, courtesy of Digital-Tutors. It takes you through the whole process – from thumbnail to final render. ”

    This is the most important reason i bought the mag, the disc dosn’t have the video files at all this is false advertising and best of all the disc loads to show maya scene content and all the Daz and 3d ocean files but if you launch the HTML file to start the disc it stalls and locks up your browser. I am very disappointed and would like access to the 7 hour video tutorials stated.

    Hi,
    Thanks for getting in touch. Due to unavoidable disc space limitations, the video training files are hosted on our website. You can access these by loading up your cover disc, clicking on the video training tab down the side of the disc interface and then clicking on the link at the bottom of the product page.
    If you require any extra help accessing these files, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Interactive department and they’ll be happy to help. The best email address to contact is 3daxtrahelp@imagine-publishing.co.uk.
    Many thanks,
    Sarah
