  1. This guy should just not make tutorials at all. Its incredibly difficult to follow his tutorials, unless you are NOT a beginner. He even dares to make many tutorials supossedly directed to beginners but they are not tutorials for beginners, and you give up after 5 minutes.

  2. When i wanted to learn max 1.2 about 3 decades ago i had to go to a library and rent an old Inside 3DS Max book and try to learn it all by myself. 'Beginner' can mean many things, it can mean you don't know a vertex from a face or that you never rigged a character before. Be glad someone is explainig these things for you as best they can. Gratitude and respect are the cornerstones of all good things you are getting 'for free'... KATANA think about that for a second please.
