Make a Complete Sci-Fi Short from Scratch with Digital-Tutors’ New VFX Training Series

Expert Tutorials Explain Production Techniques Used on Live-Action/CG Short; Modeling and Rigging Lessons Free

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma – Sep 15, 2015 – Today,  Digital-Tutors, a Pluralsight company, launches the  ‘Daydreamer’ Production Pipeline series. Featuring 12 hours of video training, this advanced series takes artists through the complete process needed to animate a  sci-fi short – from creature modeling to compositing. 

The robots, rockets and brightly colored landscapes that populate a little girl’s fantasy world are explored over eight tutorials, each outlining a separate function of the pipeline. Starting with modeling and UVs, the tutorials progress into texturing, rigging, animating and rendering, before finishing up with color grading and compositing in The Foundry’s NUKE. Applications like MODO, MARI, Autodesk Maya and Side Effects’ Houdini are all featured, so artists can build skill sets in products used throughout the VFX industry.

“We wanted to empower artists with another in-depth pipeline series,” said Kyle Green, Director of Creative Content at Digital-Tutors. “Whether they want to learn the multiple steps of a production, or just communicate better up the pipeline, this series gives them the skills they need to be successful in a professional setting.”

Five tutorials are available now with more to arrive in the next few weeks. All the tutorials are accessible with a subscription to Digital-Tutors, and non-subscribers can  explore the first two tutorials on modeling and rigging for free.

The ‘Daydreamer’ series is another entry in Digital-Tutors’  Learning Path category devoted to production pipelines.
