    The Shores-New Free VFX courses from Alan McKay, missiles, building destructions

    Alan McKay is releasing yet another Free VFX training series.

    The series is called.."https://www.liveactionvfx.com/" And Covers missile hits on buildings, building destruction and the explosions and fire and smoke accompanied with that, the resulting animation and vids looks great in my opinion.

    https://www.liveactionvfx.com/


    10 Videos, which he Usually releases within some days, so you get seperate links to one video at the time within a week or so.
    Content is included to download.

    To note is that it is covering the tools of 3Ds Max, tyflow, and phoenixFD, so if you have acess to that and those tools, youre in for a ride.
    If not, well you may be able to follow and study the principles and think twice wether some of it may apply to be worth trying out with other software such as lightwave, houdini,, maya, blender etc.

    However..you do need to sign up, and it will result in a lot of mail often, but that is easy to unsubsribe if you do not want it.

    Bumping..download while you can, you have til 27th March.

    He has now finished 6 parts of the "The shores" live action training with 3Dmax, thinking particles and tyflow.
    It covers building destruction elements, glass fracture, missile hits, and other debris, fluid fire and smoke explosions.

    The parts he already has released is only available until 27th march...so you need to hurry and sign up and download them so you donīt miss out...as long as you sign up with a mail account, it is free, and you will get scene assets in Max format and also some of it in alembic format.

    You can sign up here at no cost at all, except getting news about his free training series, (he releases a couple from time to time for free) and mailīs about heīs full master classes which is commercial though.

    Part 8 was finished today, it goes in to covering the tyflow fluids for the explosion this time, all the other stuff has mostly been destruction workshops.

    Hurry to get it before march 28 ..then it goes offline, itīs free ..so just download it and check if itīs of interest.

    Though we as lightwave or blender, or cinema users canīt translate this directly to our softwares workflow, it may be of interest to see the general principles, and how thinking particles and tyflow is handling all the destruction and
    fluid explosions.
