What is the problem with that? You obviously watched a tutorial for beginners.
why wouldn't you teach a beginner an extremely expedient and easy to remember hotkey
If anything, you'd mention the hotkey after doing so, just in case they aren't a retard and can remember more than just one hotkey per video.

Wow. Nailed it. I mean, I don't know if that's any consolation for the autism, but yeah - you nailed it.

To any YouTuber who has a channel providing any technical demo help, or anyone who is thinking about starting one:


>>'Hey guys how's it goin...'
I'm in a bad mood because I can't do something that I need to do. Get on with it.

>>'Today I'm gonna show you how to...'
I know. It's in the title of the fucking video. GET ON WITH IT.

>>'You might need to do this in cases where...'

>>'If you enjoyed this video...'
That's like asking me if any of my favorite books are software manuals, or which business conference center is my preferred holiday destination, but seeing as you brought it up; no, I didn't.

>>...'please hit the like button...'
No. I've got work to do. I'm going.

I'm going. Bye.

>>...'and subscr...'
Get a fucking life.

Go fuck yourself kid.
If any teenagers are reading this and you're maybe experimenting with the 'slacker, nonchalant, aloof' personality type in order to impress people because of how cool and disaffected you are - it doesn't work, it just comes over as rude and annoying and forced, and it makes adults and normal people want to fucking smack the shit out of you.
How do you even come across videos like that...
Everywhere. Some of the David Lesperance tuts on Gnomon are guilty of much of this.
Damn, I haven't seen many of them like that, but I agree about Gnomon. People praise those courses, but there's a lot of bad ones out there.
there is some proper garbage and stupidity on Gnomon:

>>Tutorials captured at 1080p on a 27" 2k display, with the UI scaled for that display so that you have to pause and squint and look real hard at the buttons the tutor is clicking.

>>Alex Alvarez (the fucking *founder* of Gnomon) is guilty of the 'groaning / sighing / sounding like a man who has just received his divorce papers' style of delivery - and his courses are literally thousands of minutes long.

>>David Lesperance has tutorials with entire sections where his microphone sample-rate and his capture sample-rate are mismatched, so he has a Mickey Mouse style high-pitched voice, for like 10 minutes at a time.
Also, his microphone is potato quality at the best of times.
Also, he talks like how a spoiled suburban teenager talks to his mother when she's just asked him to mow the lawn.

>>Devon Fay, in one of his tutorials literally says this:
'So I have a phrase that I think is *pretty good* to refer to this stage of the work, it's *pretty stupid*, but...'
He literally says; it's 'pretty good' then IMMEDIATELY decides that it's actually 'pretty stupid'.

>>Nick Reynolds deliberately has this incredibly forced, deliberately low pitched voice in order to presumably try to sound sexy or something, but again - he makes me want to just punch him in the dick.

Yeah - a lot of these people are unquestionably very very good artists but fuck me, they are shitty communicators.

Best course on Gnomon right now is the 'introduction to Zbrush 4r8' with Madeline WhateverHerNameIs.

>>Talks enthusiastically and clearly.
>>Knows her shit
>>Shows you where to actually find the fucking buttons
>'You might need to do this in cases where...'
This is what pisses me off the most.
I looked up the technique because I need it, if I need it, I obviously know where it would be useful. So just tell me where the damn button for it is so I can move on with my life.

Does anyone has any tips on making tutorials? I made a thing recently and some people have been asking me for one
Plan out your talking points before hand, don't do it freestyle. Don't add music. Make sure your voice is loud enough. No mumbling, holding a pencil or something in your teeth and try to talk with that for a few minutes before recording to help enunciation. Legible UI. Screencast keys or your program's equiv to see what keys are pressed. Don't waste time on an intro just say what you're gonna do with an image of what the end result will be, then get to it. Put useful keywords in the description or tags so people can find it. Final product in the thumbnail.
>Plan your video beforehand.
>Practice so you know exactly what you're doing and what the results will be.
>Don't go fucking around looking for things in menus, know where it is and go straight to it.
>If there are multiple ways to access a feature/function you're using (menus, shortcuts, whatever), mention ALL of them and where to find them.
>Explain exactly why you're using a feature/function.
>Screencast your keys, use subtitles where necessary.
>If it's a lengthy tutorial with multiple parts, list time codes and chapter titles at the start of the video.
>Don't stammer or slur your words, don't say "eh" or "uh" at all.
>If you're no good at talking while recording, plan your dialogue and dub it over afterwards.
>Unless you absolutely require additional audio, the only sound anyone should hear is your voice.
>Fix your audio levels.
That depends. If the guy just fucked up at using a feature it's pretty bad. But if it's part of an iterative design process I don't mind as much, seeing the different tries and mistakes is a part of learning as even experienced designers tweak their models a lot.
why do you have that image of that mudshark ofspring on your computer
you cant seriously not see the canthal tilt, ugly nose and facial dismorphia
jesus fuck i hope your not a neil druckmann pajeet nigger.
>canthal tilt
Well that's something new for me so thanks. So what is wrong with hers? I can't really judge from that angle but it seems pretty neutral?
Now wait a second - is there something wrong with her head? It certainly looks way too small for her body.

Also, seriously wtf? Are 3DCG jobs so damn intense that people don't have time for anything else in their lives?

Get feedback from others. Seriously, if you are trying to teach and you leave out something super important that you know already but your audience does not know then you screwed up. A common mistake is using a script/plugin/customUI change with hotkeys and not explaining what the setup is beforehand. Assume your audience is using all default settings so make it clear if you are using something different.

Post relevant info, links in description. No stupid lengthy intros with dubstep please. Another good thing is do a practice run first so you won't get bogged down by the unexpected or take way longer than usual.

I wouldn't go that far. Unless its a very short kind of a strict thing tut, they're all mostly either just plain shit or do work but still make you grunt and be annoyed.

Many tutorials are great, and essential if you want to get the most of your software. I used to hate tutorials but I've started watching alot of them (especially for zbrush). And guess what? I improved more in a single week of watching tutorials than in a whole year on my own.

I really hated this when I got started, I didn't learn shit from those types of videos. I learned very quickly when using real time, live narrated ones.

Anyone recall which tutorial this was? It came out earlier this year. I grabbed it on CGPeers and was really glad I didn't pay since it wasn't as advertised.

I don't understand how this level of quality control happens from a school that seriously does have really long list of notable alumni. I expect this shit out of youtube videos. From a place like Gnomon you should expect a completely flawless video course.
And here you can see I completely fuck myself over 10 minutes from now.
Yep, there it is.

I'm thinking about buying it, so I hope it's not the same tutorial as yours.

Can anyone say if it's a good tutorial to buy?

Hmm, I wonder who is right - a professional studio or some little amateur faggot who doesn't even understand perspective.
also I really don't get why people are losing their shit about this trailer
I don't even know what it is, but I've seen several people here saying how horrible it is while posting some screens...
like.... so what?
is there anything you like suffering because of this? I'm not getting people these days.
3 reasons:
They eyes. (i don't have problem with her eyes)
The sanitization of an ultra-violent grim dystopian original into an clean and nice PG-13 shitfest.
The memory of that Ghost in the Shell disaster is still fresh in mind.
>Ghost in the Shell disaster
I won't get that either.

Ghost in the shell was awesome thing, 20 years ago...
what were you even waiting from a movie, from another country, which took the name and name of characters?
literally what were you waiting to get out of that? same thing as anime was?
there is no good movie adoptation of any anime/game/etc...

these 2 mediums are created of two very, very different people, they don't "get" each other.. and never will get each other. movie people minds think like movie people...

when actors are playing comic book/anime/game characters they have not even heared about these characters before roles were introduced to them.

and the main problem is, people who oversee these movies (who have money) they have the least connection to these source materials, which fans love.

I can go on and on why it can not be good.... live action adoptations won't ever be good.

you will never relieve your favorite fictions, which was already made visually(in anime form or in gaming form, in cartoon etc...)

1. either it will be too different or 2. you should not have big connection to sorce material.

I don't even watch anything like that. It's not for me.
The Wachoswksi brothers, no sisters, proved that an anime adaption with that style could be done and still be pretty decent.
In general i agree with you, except that adaptions could be fun even if they aren't a carbon copy of the original, they don't fail because its impossible, they fail like you said because the studios choose the wrong people who are too stupid to get the original, so they botch the adaption.
So its an problem of the studio-system, it could be better.
Alita was Jim Cameron's baby, he actually wanted to make this movie himself using his performance capture and 3D technique, but he choose Avatar instead, initially he planned to make Alita after Avatar 1, but then got trapped in that Avatar universe.
I would have trusted him in doing this movie, but he betrayed the fans for his blue Aliens (and $$$), so fuck him.
>wrong people who are too stupid to get the original

thats the thing tho, there are not that much "right" people who is really good in movies, who will make good movies.
they fail with 0% of comic book movies, and whole western society grew up on comic book movies, but again, who were talented, etc and passionate about comic books has gone in comic book industry, not movie industry.

I'm not saying that it's impossible. but it's really hard to get hat fanbase wants.
I have not watched Ghost in the shell, but I'm sure I won't hate it. because I can take it for what it is.
if not carbon copy, what was the problem of Ghost in the Shell? other than it was not carbon copy?
they fail with 90%
I'm not saying they're a bad thing. I'm saying the people behing them, ironically, seem unprofessional s fuck.
Tutorials are fine, it's just that sometimes we want them to be a bit more streamlined.
Ghost in the Shell was just dumb, really dumb. Boring Antagonist, boring plot, no suspense, thrill, anything...They copied pieces from all over the franchise but with no sense of taste or plan...Everything they copied was half-assed, everything new they put in was just bad.
It is a cash-grab from an untalented director.
3/10 would not recommend.

>extremely high detailed video

>MAXIMUM THICK Pajeet accent

the manga was fucking awesome and fans are naturally going to hold it to a high standard because Cameron has been dropping hints about this movie for almost 2 decades

he made a real weird move with the eyes but i think it might actually work for the movie, who knows
as long as they get some good panzer kunst scenes in (and hopefully a bit of the Rollerball arc as well) then i think it could stand to be a pretty decent movie
It will suck. Hard.
It makes me wonder why they didn't go full cg? What's the point of having big anime eyes to be "true" to the source material if the supporting cast doesn't match?
