    It looks like several different photos (or different parts of the same photo) just rotated and cropped and then stacked on top of each other.

    Welcome. I come from 20+ years of prepress and design in sheetfed offset, but have been in the corrugated industry since 2012.

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about the panels being a different size. True, they will need to be, but the size difference is very small. If you use decent margins, you will be fine doing them all the same...

    Is this a gate fold, an accordion fold, a roll fold, etc.? Depending on how it's folded, each of the panels will need to be sized just a bit differently from the next.

  • Textures for 3d studio max ?

    just got 3d studio max and now "currently not having money to buy the book" I'm watching tutorials. I found that I am missing textures or maps in the map editor.
    That would be something around what I'm trying to do. Do you have to buy a plug-in to create this effect or go through the long process of making that effect? I want the transparent, glass, water look through out the tentacles that reach out from something like an exploding star.

    You make your objects, asign your surface attributes (which may or may not include images for the textures, i.e. bump maps, transparency, refraction index etc.). Then render it out using multi-pass and edit a bunch in Photoshop.

    I strongly recommend you read your 3ds manuals, and I'm pretty sure if you look deviant art has some tutorials up on how to do that effect in 3ds max (seen them before).
