Hi people,

I need to model a photo realistic Magazine in Maya 2011

I'm asking for ideas on how to create the magazine. (not the textures or lighting)

If you had to create a magazine that could be animated to turn pages, what would you do?

NURBS? Polygon planes? etc...
Just need a little guidance to get this one started...

Thanks.

Mike

NURBS seem like they would work, unless you need diagonal folds/creases anywhere.

If you're rendering in mental ray, you might also explore the 'round_corners' shader, and see if you can use it to add a bit of an edge to your pages without having to actually extrude them, which would be a bit of a pain.
