A Practical Hands-on MudBox Training Course
(PRWEB) February 18, 2012
Technology training firm InfiniteSkills Inc has released a multi-part Autodesk Mudbox 2012 Tutorial Video course, with an emphasis on basic sculpting and industry standard practices in design. The Mudbox tutorial features 79 video lessons, covering topics such as 3D modeling essentials, the Mudbox toolset, organic and hard surface modeling, and software integration with 3DS Max.
"Mudbox is an advanced application with sophisticated tools for increasing resolution and detail in 3D models," says InfiniteSkills communications director Chris Johns. "Our videos help beginners intuitively grasp the skills necessary to use these programs effectively by providing a hands-on experience right on your computer screen."
Mudbox tutorial author Brian Mennenoh is an expert in the field of 3D modeling software with over 14 years of design and teaching. Mennenoh developed his effective personal training style as a university level instructor, using practical modeling examples that are simple and learner-friendly while engaging the essential elements of the Mudbox toolset.
As it is used by leading video game developers and special effects companies, digital sculpting using Mudbox provides incredible levels of detail by subdividing the 3D mesh. The InfiniteSkills Mudbox tutorial makes these advanced capabilities accessible to new users by orienting the training around a multi-part model: a 3D human warrior.
The course begins by covering the basics of 3D sculpting and navigating the Mudbox toolset. Then learners are guided through various elements of 3D modeling, sculpting the organic surfaces of human anatomy and hard surface elements like the warrior's sword. Mennenoh then dives into Mudbox's impressive capability for creating detail, covering hair, facial components, and skin details such as veins. The course ends by covering the integration of Mudbox projects with 3DS Max in a workflow.
"You can't beat Brian's hands-on approach to training," says Colin Boyd, sales director for the company. "With our videos, users get to see how Mudbox works by actually putting the program to use. Hands-on training helps anyone pickup the essentials quickly, and it's proven very effective time and time again."
InfiniteSkills offers the Mudbox 2012 Tutorial Video course on DVD-ROM or as a download from the company's website at a retail price of $99.95 USD. Both formats are Mac and Windows compatible, and shipping and buying options are available worldwide.
