# New modo retopology tutorial video

 01 January 2013 WesMcDermott Allegorithmic   portfolio Wes McDermott Community Manager, Product Evangalist Allegorithmic Louisville, USA New modo retopology tutorial video Hey, I have created a new modo video tutorial on using the retopology tools. The video is hosted and available through cmiVFX.com. The video will be available on January 15th, but it's available for presale on the cmiVFX.com site for a discount until it officially releases. Luxology modo Retopology Tactics Checkout the introduction video . Here's a chapter breakdown of the topics covered. Introduction You can listen to the introduction of the video using our Vimeo link listed on this page. Re-Topology Tool Overview In this video, we discuss the topology toolset and workflow in modo 601. This video sets the foundation towards getting to know the tools that we will use throughout the course. Topology Concepts Before we get into working on the model we need to cover some basic topology concepts. In this video we take a look at loop structure and polygon flow. By establishing a solid understanding of topology, we'll be equipped to properly resurface the model. Mesh Editing Techniques In this video we will discuss techniques for editing the mesh at the component level. The techniques covered will build upon our skills for working with topology and will be used in the actual Retopology session. Topology Guides In this video, we discuss a method for painting lines on the reference mesh that we can then use as guides when creating the core loop structures for the topology. Topology: Core Loops This video begins the process of creating new topology. We will start with creating the core loops that we outlined in the topology guides video. These core loops will become the foundation for the rest of the model was we fill in polygons in later videos. Topology Session: Section 1 This is the first section of the Re-Topology process. In this video, we focus on the mouth and chin. Topology Session: Section 2 This is the second section of the Re-Topology process. In this video, we focus on completing the nose and jaw. Topology Session: Section 3 This is the third section of the Re-Topology process. In this video, we focus on the eye and completing the forehead and cheek areas. Topology Session: Section 4 This is the forth and final section of the Re-Topology process. In this video, we focus on the ear, back of the head, neck and torso. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks, Wes share quote
