Proper Topology Management

 

Learn how to use “clean” quad-based topology to create models that work in a variety of pipelines. Great for VFX, animation, and other workflows where the model needs to be deformed and versatile.

 

Understanding Edge Flow

 

It’s one thing to model in quads, but another game to manage topology and edge flow correctly. We show you how to do this without the usual technical stuff surrounding topology.

 

Designing With Quads

 

We show you how to design using quad topology from scratch without it being too technical or intimidating, so you will learn how to “think” in quads while working on your own projects.

 

Creating any Hard Surface Shapes

 

Subd is abstract therefore it may seem it is hard to control the shapes you want to create. We show you all the practical techniques and tricks that make it easy and fun, without breaking your creative process.

 

Redirection and Shading

 

Managing topology includes understanding how to ‘redirect” your topology for proper edge flow and subd control. We show you how to do this in a way that creates beautiful, natural shading and transitions on your models.

 

Level of Detail and Mesh Clean-Up

 

One common mistake with subd modelers is they start with a dense mesh. Instead, you want to start as low-poly as possible, and then use subd to increase the level of detail. We show you how to do this (and clean up your mesh) inside the program.

 

Complete Modeling Workflow & Training

 

Learn how to piece everything together by creating a hard surface bot completely from scratch with quad-based topology. We show you the technical application and how to do everything, step-by-step, with real-time commentary.

 

Speed and Efficiency

 

Most subd courses out there (if not all) are all vanilla Blender based, which means the workflows they teach are super slow. We use HardOPS, Boxcutter, Machin3 Tools and Mesh Machine and Cablerator addons to make it almost as quick as boolean modeling.

BONUS: Rendering & Texturing

 

 We’ll show you how to render & texture your model with our addon Material Works in order to create a proper portfolio piece. This isn’t required, but is a nice bonus so you get a complete workflow form start to finish.

 

BONUS: Portfolio Presentation

 

Having a proper portfolio showing off your work is essential.

Without it, even if you have the most badass game asset, no one will get "wowed" by your work. Make it count!

 

 

Project Files

 

Included are all the project files from the program so you can reverse-engineer the model or simply use it for reference.
