Hi!

so here it is: Another beginner Tutorial for A:M... ;)
PatchWork3d: Beginner Tutorial

It is quite large (mp4, about 50 min. 1024px * 604px resolution).
Filesize is about 160 MB, but I think it is worth it for a beginner!
Let me know what you think.

I am covering different things like:
- user interface
- basic spline / patch principles
- some comon questions like: how to connect a shape to an arm > explaining when to use which patches, etc.
- what are and when to use hooks
- the advantages and disadvantages of peaked vs smooth splines
- hooks, lathe, extrusion, copy/flip/attach, a little bit about normals
- many many helpful little tipps concering keyboard shortcuts, good practice, etc.

And finally we are modelling a spoon in A:M.
Hope it will help you to get started with A:M's way of modelling in a better way.

See you
*Fuchur*

Fuchur----( I wrote this in other spot )--but its awesome !!! Its really one of the best introductions to AM modeling I have seen . And its must watching for everyone new or everyone struggling with modeling. I have been one to struggle with modeling and have to say there were a couple of things you explained that has me re-excited to practice ---so thanks so much for your efforts.

Thanks for the response :).
Hope that it will help people to understand A:M's modelling better.

I tried to download the file but the full version would not arrive. I got a small zip instead at about 30K rather than the 150Mb you mention. Is it still available and, if so, where can I find it?

Thank you very much for that.
Is it still possible to download the file? I anticipate that I may have to watch it several times.

Ps
Thank you.
I learnt a lot I didn't know, especially about the use of bias handles.
