Carrara 8 is a well respected 3D modeling software package from Daz3D. In this Carrara 8 tutorial video, expert instructor Phil Wilkes introduces you to the program starting from the basics of exploring the interface, and then quickly jumping into functional instruction on how to apply the power tools this software has to offer.
Taught using the latest in video based training technology, Phil covers topics such as cameras and lighting effects, rendering, primitives, hair, shaders and more. He also introduces you to the new puppeteering and bullet physics features included in Carrara 8. Once you have all the operations down, you will put it altogether in a few final projects that re-enforce everything you have learned in the tutorials.
By the completion of this video based training course, you will be fully versed in the operation of Carrara 8, and completely comfortable animating your own figures, and creating your own environments. Work files are included to allow you to follow along with the Carrara tutorials.
