    Arrow Intro to Hard Surf. SubD Modeling Tutorial

    Hey everyone,

    I have a new video series that is for sale one my site.
    Introduction to Hard Surface Subdivision Surface Modeling

    If you are familiar with my other free video tutorials and have enjoyed them you might be interested in this series. This video series covers the basics to get you started with hard surface subdivision modeling. It is presented using Lightwave 3d 9.6 and 10. The series is over 6 hours long and covers many of the techniques, tools and plugins that you'll need to learn to get started with your subd work. It also covers ways to troubleshoot your models as well as a few real world examples to get you started.

    The series is geared toward people just getting started with hard surface subd modeling and people that just want a better understanding of the basic techniques to help their workflows. Before starting you should know how to use most of the tools in Lightwave and be able to find your way around but most things are explained in detail if happen to be new to Lightwave. All of the models and reference photos that are used in the main videos are included so you can open them and use them as you go through the videos.

    As an added bonus I've included high resolution versions of my perfume bottle and DNA tutorials from my site for an extra hour of training bringing the total time to over 7 hours. The video series is available as a digital download only.

    I'm attaching the descriptions of all of the included videos below.

    This looks great! When you refer to plugins will they be Mac friendly?

    Thanks.

    Edit: Took a look at your screen shots - looks like you're on a Mac so I'm guessing everything in your course will be Mac friendly should have looked at them before posting.

    Yes, I did all of the videos on a Mac. Keep in mind that the plugins are not included with the videos but I do review a bunch. They all work in 9.6 on the Mac, but I have found that the PICTRIX plugins that I use in the vids do not work in 10 on the mac - I've already told this to PICTRIX. And you always want to make sure the plugins work in either 32/64bit depending on how you work. There is one plugin that I mention that is Windows only as well.

    I also try to make sure you can do all of the tasks with either native LW tools or free plugins. It's just that some of the commercial ones make things a little easier. Let me know if you have any other Qs.

    Thanks Matt & William! I have a tendency to go slow and try to explain as much as I can during the videos. Some people don't like that pace but others do. My main goal is for people to be able to walk away from the videos with techniques and knowledge that they can use on future projects.

    @Kuzey - you da man! Thanks! That's really great that you'd post about the vids!

    That's really great news Jeff in that I have liked your tutorials for some time now. I will definitely buy them as soon as I can free some funds up. And to anyone that hasn't checked out his free tutorials please do so. They are top quality and I hope you can afford to show some support for those efforts as well. It is looking like the start of a very good new year in that so many of the people that I have come to deeply respect in this forum taking the time to make tutorials for us!!!

    JeffrySG,
    That was a good investment! I was sitting with a problem very close to the explanation
    in the film 15-curve cutout cylinder.mov and now I feel I am on the track.
    I like your pace and detailed explanation. Thank you for making these films available!
