formZ Sub-D introduction

Recommended Posts

Hey all.  

Here are my first videos regarding, well anything.   The audio is poor, so my apologies.  Kind of muffled, as my Mic got delayed in shipment.  I can't get rid of my crappy North Dakota accent, however. That you will just have to suffer through.  Unless I can find an equal or crappier robot voice... hmmm?

Anyway, feel free to give an honest critique.  I won't be able to improve unless I truly know how much I suck at it.

Video 1: https://youtu.be/KknlZTgLxTE    can possibly be skipped as it discusses Sub-D's in a more general sense.  However, it does get into a little bit why sub-D's aren't for everything.


Video 2: https://youtu.be/LaWa2Sygpa8      "Add Detail to form-Z Sub-D part 1" gets into some basics of how to add details to your mesh.  Working with a flat shape so that you the viewer don't have to think about the form that the mesh is creating.  To be honest, that was for me too.  Regardless, it is about how to add a higher density mesh section to a lower density area.  Critical knowledge for shapes that transition and for Polygon flow.  It does start out with, a "Don't do this" scenario.  Which it took me years to figure this little ditty out

Video 3: https://youtu.be/FZveQ4CktqM    Continuation of video 2

Video 4: https://youtu.be/qYdqacGKD6g    Coke Bottle Part 1  (disclaimer, just an intro into what we will do and what was done wrong by me previously:)

Video 5: https://youtu.be/12Vq63AUYcU    And finally, the coke bottle.  For real this time:

Anyway, as mentioned before, critique away!  I will say that at times I move kind of fast WITHOUT describing a blow by blow commentary.  The videos are unlisted, as I want to get a feel for doing this and eventually add some polish to the content I present.

I hope this helps, even if you don't enjoy it!   ;)

Thanks Chris, I'm looking forward to the other two videos.

One thing, the video resolution is really low at 360p so it's hard to see any detail.
