  • Good value, detailed workflow, intermediate+ Blender knowledge

    For the value of doing detailed hair in Blender (for use into UE4/UE5) I think he did a great job. He relays the material to get the job done. Seems the instructer wants you to have some above basic / intermediate+ working knowledge of Blender, which is fine. He gets you there no problem.

    Its kind of a no BS down to business work flow, which is good. He’s not putting in a lot fluff.

    I gave it 4 stars:
    – $40 might be a bit high, but there’s a lot of value in watching what he’s doing if you want help in how to place the cards, and pay attention to the time lapses which aren’t too fast (compared to youtube ones).
    – I dont care so much about the video quality or how it was cut, but wish he would do more explaining some of the advanced techniques and work flows he’s working with. Less time lapse, more explaining (but we shouldn’t have to be led by the nose here. Just more detailed functionality in his methods.)

    Nice work. I enjoyed it, working on my project nicely. I’d purchase from him again.

  • Not worth 40$

    Not worth 40$, cutting between talking scenes and you can get lost easily.
    I am disappointed with this tutorial, the channel’s youtube tutorials are much more better than this, there are lots of cuts in the scene, I got lost sometimes. this tutorail mostly contains a time-lapse, and the video are kinda rushed, 2 stars are for the good tips he gave.

  • Needs editing and fleshing out. Not worth $40.

    I paid for a class, not a brief overview and then watching in silence as the guy moves stuff around. Also dude needs to learn microphone etiquette. He’s constantly smacking his lips, making noises with his saliva and clearing his throat. It’s disgusting at times.

    2 stars because he does give a few good tips but the rest feels rushed, unprepared and needed oversight.
