A great tutorial, but so much has changed by now, Luxology etc, Photomatch with different methods..,
A revised edition would be more than welcome. Any news?
I feel you. Was struggling myself but, to be honest there are plenty learning materials on the Bentley Learning server.
for v8i SS3 / SS4 for rendering, don't ignore materials from Foundry Luxology service as well. All of them quite useful.
Anyway, this forum and WiKi helped me a lot.
