Hi guys, I would like to ask you if you can recommend me some books regards real time VFX? I could not find any, and it is little bit terrible because our knowledge could be forgotten over time. Everything is only on the internet.

There aren’t any. Which makes sense since our field evolves so fast it would likely be outdated by the time it got to print. I know @Wataru is working on one in Japanese but I think that’s the only one.

Hey @maxman_3d this is a great book for learning fx.

I think that the effects creation processes has not changed much in the last 10 years. The tools change during the time, but the principle of creation is still the same. In this respect, there is room for creating a book describing the principle of effect creation.
