Absolutely stunning. I’ve been studying F.A.C.S a fair bit as recommended by several other TD’s, but this method of utilizing and implementing it into a workflow is simply stunning.
Professionally, most of my work has been General TD and Character TD stuff. Rigging, pipeline, scene optimization etc. here is a list of essential plugins that have helped me get my job done. Keep in mind my list is not the ten best free plugins overall, there’s some other cool ones out there I really like, but these are my 10 essential I use all the time. (more…)
Cineversity keeps growing and growing, so much that I constantly discover new tutorials there myself when I go to update or publish a tutorial. I did want to point out some important ones that already disappeared from the New Tutorials list.
Both Bret Bays and Jon Ware, have done some awesome work on adding some Rigging Related tutorials. Bret has been doing a great series on Intermediate Rigging that is 9 tutorials now, and will grow a little more once I get Video 10 done myself.
Jon’s series is a little more advanced, it isn’t going to teach anyone how to make a rig, but actually how to adapt a a rig to work with motion capture data, so that the data drives the IK rig.
Finally Chris Chestnut has started what I hope grows into a really cool series of “as seen on TV” tutorials where they try to come up with a solution to recreate a cool motion graphics effect on TV. Most have probably been done in CINEMA 4D, some maybe not, and the setups they teach wont’ necessarily be how they were actually done, but each tutorial will try to simulate an effect seen on TV. Check out the first one simulating an effect from NBC.
Cineversity has reached 1275 Live tutorials and looks like it wont’ stop any time soon.
