In 2012 Is Cineversity Worth The Loot?

Recommended Posts

I'll add to the praise of Hrvoje's tuts, however one thing to keep in mind is that you can watch modeling

tuts done in other applications and apply the knowledge to your Cinema modeling. The workflow is the same.

Thus Digital Tutors becomes a tremendous resource just in that regard alone. None of the modeling tuts I watched

early on when I was learning to model were done in Cinema - ZERO. Made no difference.

That said, Vertex Pusher is an excellent investment.

IMHO he should have made the new "Volume 1" available free to the "Gold" members that purchased

the first one. I shan't be paying twice for a volume one tutorial, 99 percent of which I don't

need at this pint, just to get some updates on the recent Cinema releases. Small quibble all in all.

Vertex Pusher tutorials are top notch. I own them all and eagerly await the release of the next "Volume" or "Project". Anything Hrvoje puts out is very complete and in-depth. He has quite a reputation here on the Cafe. No one should hesitate when making a purchase, these tutorials are a real value for sure.

Old Vol.1 was done in R11.5 and 12 and although they share the same name and some overlapping content due to the nature of things, new volume 1 is completely new training built from scratch :)

difference between R11.5 and R14 is huge (New snapping, guides, axis extension&modification, workplane, navigation, interface, projection tools, new deformers etc) so it had to be done.

Hope you don't feel you lost 20€ ;)

 

By the way, I am thinking about doing a modeling training which would include building couple of very different models (not characters) just to encompass all areas of where Cinema is being used such as arch, automotive, product design etc.

After you release the expresso tut, you can do whatever you want ;-) :-)

You reminded me that gold users deserve extra treatment, after all, they were my first customers and took a leap of faith with the first tut I made - I'll keep that in mind for future, reworked volumes :)

Xpresso volume or project? Or both? :)

Yes!!!

 

I did want to say that cineversity has been helpful to me in personal training by using their forums. Dr. Sassi is amazing and can figure anything out which is giving you trouble. To me, that is worth the yearly investment alone.

Just my two cents worth.

@mbyrne

 

I was joking when I said they can't afford me:)

 

Vray? Odd that you ask because few months back I talked with Stefan about such possibility. The problem is that I am not a Vray user and it would take time to master it, and until then there is no way I will do Vray tut unless I know it inside out. Anything else would be dilettantish from my part.

Does this mean you're working on an Expresso Volume already?

Which would mean covering every node in detail, including TP. :)

That would be quite a volume...

TP would be a separate volume ;)
