1st Edition Errors

Though I took great care in writing the book and several different editors went over the book several times, some type errors and other problems did end up in the final version of the book. The remarkable thing about things made out of atoms is that it is really expensive to edit them after they are published (unlike this website). I believe I have managed to write all the errors up below. If you run into something that isn’t written below, please contact myself or Peachpit Press.

Chapter 11
This chapter has two problems that might break the comp as it is written. I would add two changes to the progression of the composition for it to work well.
Page 306 After point 1 Insert a Shuffle node after Read1 and set the alpha output to white by clicking the white box in the alpha row. This is done instead of points 8 & 9 in page 335.
Page 310 After point 19 Change the three Scale properties (x, y, z) of the camera from 100 to 1. This is done instead of points 36 & 37 in page 314.
