Arnold for Maya Video Series

http://tmblr.co/Z26hWsillVx0


I'd like to introduce a new video series we've produced on Arnold for Maya.

In this 6 hour series we are going through all the knobs, buttons, and options available to us in Arnold for Maya. And get to grips with the workflow and methods of Arnold.

We have been working really closely with Solid angle for a long time, and will be teaching on their behalf at FMX next week, and hope to see you then!

The download page will be going live before Friday, so here is the introduction video to the series.

very highly unlikely

BTW the training looks promising. Apart from fxphd's there's not much to choose from. Then again, the renderer itself is not very accessible

Hi Guys,

Sorry but no it's not going to be free.

The price will be announced when the download page goes live. It's going to be a digital download with all the asset files rather than streaming.

And while you are right in that currently it isn't very assessable, that is going to change at some point in the near future.

Thanks

Ben

Great that there is a video series.

Will be nice to have a look at this render solution in some depth.

I hope near future is nearer than what they have been calling near over the last few years though.

You should put what it teaches not how much time it lasts.
I know that is default publicize mode of tutorials, but i think it is just obfuscation.
I have had tutorials that teach more in 15 min than some that lasted 2 hours.

Great to see the series.

Now lets have Arnold!

By the way... checked out the video. It looks to be a good series and a reasonable price.

My only hesitation. I don't want to buy the video, get all worked up over Arnold and then wait another few years like the last time they said it would be available soon.

What is the hold up anyways?

I feel if you are going to be offering this video, and want to sell more copies that at least, be prepared to give something more concrete than "near future".

They have been saying that well, I can not remember a time when they have not said that. How many years has it been?

You can buy it actually, so what is the hold up?

Sounds juicy. Are there any chances for a Softimage version too?

I am not a studio? I am not independently wealthy?

Available = website, trial version, pricing for individual licenses. Reasonable node license pricing strategy for individuals such as Vray etc.

They are apparently not ready to go that route. At least that is my understanding currently.

Perhaps I should have stuck with the more apt.... "accessible".

Well, maybe you are not their targeted customer then.

Taking that aside, Arnold is available for over two years now, its spreading was just limited for several reasons which are totally understandable btw.

There is a website, you can email them if you are interested, ect.. So in your definition it is available/accessible indeed.

"Not ready" sounds limited, replacing that by "not aiming" sounds more like it.

Cheers

FXPhD is offering an Arnold course which is based on Softimage

Not aiming works for me. We can go with that.

Since you seem fairly dialed in, do you have any insight as to my original question putting the choice word "aiming?

I really would like to know. When will they be "aiming" it at the rest of the world? lol actually that sounds funny. But we'll just go with it.

Is this "sometime soon" going to be.... months years.... etc.

And I was asking the people marketing the tutorial for what it is worth. They are after all trying to make sales here.
