I am just grateful for the tutorials, I am just starting this thing of animation but this web is building me up on a highest speed that now I can do more than enough a beginner can do. I won't forget Andrew, you are the best and your team.
But can I get also a website where I can get video tutorials teaching 3D Max?
Any one please can help me with that if you know any

This guy has a ton of great tutorials on 3ds Max. If you follow his tutorials from the beginning you will go from beginner to very skilled in a short time.

I love this tutorial but I'm having a couple of problems and would appreciate any help.

I went for the full star map instead of just the crest but the torch layer is moving up instead of out from the center. I want it to radiate out. Any tips?

The other is that I wanted to make the BG layer a real image from astronomers but the adjustment layers affect the color of the background and I want to isolate the BG Real layer from any adjustments.

This is for a design project in a astrophysics course and I'd love any suggestions.
