As most of you have probably seen by now, I’m working on plenty of VFX tutorials that I plan on doing far into the foreseeable future.
An issue came up with creating a tutorial just a bit ago. As I do my tutorials, I typically create an effect beforehand just for practice to make sure I’ve got it right, and then I record me doing it again from scratch so that you see the ENTIRE process.
During this most recent tutorial, I messed up numerous times without noticing and didn’t notice until about 45 minutes in. Some of the mistakes were great opportunities to learn about what was actually going on and why things weren’t working as intended. In the end, everything came out fantastic.
I’m thinking of just placing some comment blips throughout a tutorial where I make mistakes and let you see them before I do/did.
So here’s a poll that’s relevant to this:
- Let us see your mistakes to learn from them
- Edit the mistakes out, or re-record the tutorial until you get it right.
Any other feedback you may have on what I’ve created so far, please let me know here too!
