Im a new programer coming from the art aspect of computor graphics. I have a project in mind i am gearing up for and trying to tailor my learning to achieve this end on a fix income, so Im limited and can not aford to make mistakes in my purchases.
To the question.
My project will be very heavaly graphics orented and I have been looking at books out there for VB
And found 2 books by you. but the publish dates are rather old. With all of the changed todate in VB
.net along with advances in direct x. Just how usefull will your older titles be for me. I will need in my project to generate and manipulate 3d complex objects for the purpose of creating full graphic sceens, so this will also include precise handeling of 2d textures(bitmaps, jpeg's est)to give you a breaf view of the scope I need.
Any info and or suggestions for publications is appreciated.
