Classes n' stuff fur learning
show user profile  9krausec

Work is willing to pay some casholia for learning resources for me which is exciting.What would ya'll recommend as really good resources but might cost some money.

I've been running a Digital Tuts subscription now for a couple months, love that so I'm going to have work pick up the tab from here on out.

Also I was considering Grant Warwick's tutorial set for Vray. My goal at the end of this is to be a ninja in Maya and Vray. I know enough to be dangerous, but I want to submerge myself in learning materials that are direct, effective and formal.

Any other suggestions? Vray doesn't really differ from 3ds to Maya, does it? Grant Warwick's tuts will still be good to go through? Rightio?


one question answered.

Ironic you mention Grant Warwick, was just about to tell you to invest in his Mastering Vray course. I'm going to do that myself.

I think he's gonna do a hard surface course too. That one could be really interesting.

I'm excited because I've never been formally taught in 3D. Just random tuts and banging my head against a wall a lot for a few years.

Digital tutors already has got me up to speed 10x faster than before (comparing to how long it took me to learn 3ds max... that being said having a background in 3D is huge in learning a 3D software).

Yeah. Remove that mang.

Edit: Further more.. I'd wager that one day in the near future all Vray assets for all major software applications are going to be interchangeable (or at least between 3ds and Maya)...

Good call. They are good for the basic "how to use the software" in a general sense. I had it through my school some and burned through the vray tutorials to get a better foundation.

I think DigitalTuts is going to be my best, most put together option (that I know of).

next thing I need to figure out is how reputable those certificates you get after completing tests on Digital Tutors are...

Eventually I'm also thinking of working towards getting AD certified with Maya (if research shows that it's worth it or just a scam).

Thanks for the input though NPCPH.
