Luxology has created a new training division that will offer a wide range of comprehensive learning materials for modo users. The first product from the new training division is a comprehensive 17-video series, which covers modeling, texturing and lighting for the iconic Le Mans C9 racecar.
"This video series is not just teaching people how to build a car," said Andy Brown, training director of Luxology, and former art and design lecturer at Tyne Metropolitan College. "It is also teaching modo users how to create dozens of interesting yet classic shapes that are useful to master for everyday production work."
"The demand for modo training materials has reached critical mass," said Brad Peebler, president/co-founder of Luxology. "We are committed to meeting this demand so that modo users can have a steady flow of professional quality training materials on a variety of real-world topics."
Luxology's new training division is also leveraging the talents of members from its ever-growing modo community. By publishing an array of helpful tutorials and work studies on its website, Luxology is offering modo training for a wide range of skill levels and interests. In addition to the LE MANS C9 video series by Brown, Luxology's training division offers the OFFICIAL LUXOLOGY MODO GUIDE (Thompson Publishing), a 400-page four-color book written by Dan Ablan. Also available from Luxology's new training division is a 15-hour introduction to modo DVD that was produced by Dan Ablan of 3D Garage.com.
The new LE MANS C9 video training series is available in two separate albums. Album 1 contains videos 1-8 and album 2 contains videos 9-17. Each album is sold separately for $25 and individual videos can be purchased for $5 each. THE OFFICIAL LUXOLOGY MODO GUIDE is $49.99 and the 3DGarage.com modo courseware DVD is $179.
