It’s time we talked about the difference between  2D and 3D

Allar Kaasik knows what it takes to create VFX magic, and in this webinar - he’ll take you through the difference between 2D and 3D as well as the possible career paths in both disciplines. This is your chance to understand what VFX jobs are out there, including the Compositors, Matte Painters, Modellers, Animators, Lighters, Texture Artists and FX Artists - the list goes on.

If you’ve only recently joined the world of VFX, this is your perfect opportunity to get to grips with the pipeline. Allar will cover the make-or-break skills required to land your first job in VFX, and more importantly - how to turn that first job into a successful career. You’ll also be able to get a few pointers on how to choose the VFX discipline that matches your talents. Not bad for only 1 hour of your evening!

During the demonstration, Alex will show you how to make Monty happy, sad, angry, or scared, masculine or feminine, and even turn him into a goose-stepping soldier! All with a basic walk cycle, and in just a few clicks.

It's a great technique that breaks down apparently complex outcomes into simple, basic steps that any animator can master.
