Throughout this title I'll be working in 3ds Max 2009 using assets that I created especially for this title. If you're a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on disk you have unlimited access to the Exercise Files used throughout this title. If you're instead a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com and don't have access to the Exercise Files, you'll still be able to follow along from scratch or by creating your own assets. Now as you explore the resources material in the Exercise folder you will find that different chapters will contain different types of material.
Some folders, like Chapter 4 that deals with working with objects, will simply provide the beginning files to get you going. While others where we might work together on a particular project will include both the completed file in addition to files saved out at various stages or intervals during the lesson. So in all cases, make sure to familiarize yourself with what's being provided for your use and you will find that in every situation the chapter numbers in the exercise files will correspond to the chapter numbers found in the table of contents, which should make it real easy to find the assets you're looking for.
What I would suggest is copying the entire Exercise Files folder over to the computer's desktop which will give you easy access without having to track things down. Now let's get started with 3ds Max.
