In this course we cover a range of subjects including efficient 3D modeling, texture creation, python scripting and problem solving. We won’t focus on a particular project, the goal is to show you a technique, a tip, a workflow and move on. The content is divided in four sections (see more below). Each section contains +20 tips or tutorials, watch the intro video and read more below.
CHAPTER 1 – PHOTOSHOP
We start with Photoshop, using the software as a 3D artist. We cover linear workflow inside photoshop, processing photos for texturing, creating custom displacement and glossiness maps, advanced blending options, color matching techniques and more. Although Mari is a great tool for texturing, there’s no CG Generalist that can live without Photoshop, from image manipulation to maps creation, this is an essential software package.
CHAPTER 2 – MAYA
This is the largest section of the course, with an emphasis on artistic and technical workflows, like saving render time, changing material behavior based on artistic decisions, using simple Maya python commands to automate tasks, complex mesh creation, camera match, projections and more. There are plenty of tips and tutorials in this section to cover all experience levels.
CHAPTER 3 – NUKE
In the Nuke videos we cover workflows such as color correcting linear images and HDR’s, solving problems like camera import issues and scene scale, creating lens effects, expressions and more. We also explore some custom gizmos, customizing nuke user interface, and face common problems inside nuke’s 3D space, that even compositors experts would benefit.
CHAPTER 4 – THEORY
Finally some theory. Things like texture acquisition, natural weathering, modeling workflows and more. This will be a general overview on various workflows, going through some slides and explaining different concepts. We explore real world examples, and although this is a theory lesson, there are plenty of practical tips.
*The recording time was +10 hours, but I have cut and edit everything, speed up sections and skip repetitive tasks, to provide you the best learning experience, the total length of the videos are around 2 and half hours.
*The content consists of 720p video files with audio.
*In these first weeks, all the orders will be processed manually due to the lack of resources, so it may take up to 4 hours to receive the content, which will be sent as a download link to your paypal email. Once we receive the paypal notification email we will process the order.
*The only payment method available is paypal, the total cost is 39$.
