More on the MBM Upgrade!

Hey Guys,

As promised here is Part 3 of the Ongoing Free series of videos outlining some quick (ish) methods for creating Roughcast and Pebbledash surfaces in 3ds Max.

Youtube Version:

As always you can grab the Hi Rez Quicktime HERE!
(Right Click & 'Save As')

We also mentioned in our last post that there were other benefits that will come to customers from our use of a Full E Commerce shopping system! Well, something that we hope will be a BIG plus with our customers is the integration of a ‘Rewards Point’ system that will allow customers to accrue Reward Points based on the Monetary value of purchases made in the MBM Shop. The system will allow the redemption of those points as either a ‘money off future purchases’ service, or if enough points are accrued, you can use them to make an outright purchase inside the MBM shop. Hopefully you will agree that this feature means we are adding even more value to the purchase of your MBM Training Materials.

Hey Everyone,

2 reasons for todays Blog entry! FIRSTLY we are going to give you another little chunk of info regarding the upgrade to MBM’s Training offerings.

A SECOND reason for our post is that we want (as you can see below) to bring you Part 2 of our FREE RoughCast & Pebbledash creation module, All using standard 3ds Max tools. We do use Mental Ray as the renderer in this module but it could just as easily have been Vray, Brazil or indeed any plugin render engine for 3ds Max. Hope you enjoy.

Okay, onto our MBM upgrade info. Plenty more to tell yet. For instance a BIG PLUS to users will be the massive speed up regarding getting MBM training into the hands of users once they have purchased it. This will be accomplished by our making use of a FULL E Commerce shopping system that will automate the receipt of your download links so that getting your hands on your MBM training purchase should become pretty much instantaneous. (depending of course on the quality and speed of your Internet Connection!).

There are other benefits that come to MBM customers as a result of using an E Commerce system…but we think we will save them for future posts. :)
