>VFX Reading List for the Summer

>The holidays are soon upon us, so I thought I’d share my reading list for this summer.

Let’s start with the most expensive one. From what I’ve understood it’s a must read in the industry, so I’ve ordered The Art and Science of Digital Compositing by Ron Brinkmann, the Product Designer for Apple’s Shake.

Here’s another reference book that you’re expected to be able to know inside out, Digital Compositing for Film and Video by Steve Wright.

Now for the new edition for AE 7.0 of a great book I ordered just two months ago (anyone interested in buying the 6.5 edition?) Adobe After Effects 7.0 Studio Techniques by Mark Christiansen.
This is really a must-read for anyone serious about professional AE work.

Here’s two non-VFX books that I picked up after hearing Neil Gershenfeld in a podcast and reading his piece about home fabrication in Make: magazine.

FAB: The Coming Revolution on Your Desktop–From Personal Computers to Personal Fabrication

When Things Start to Think

And finally some reading for the long, dark tea-time of the fall, since it won’t be published until October 2006: The DV Rebel’s Guide by the guru Stu Maschwitz.
