I don’t want to add to a problem. I just thought a high school focusing on Carrara would be pretty uplifting to a lot of folks.
No problem at all. This is some really important stuff. If you remember the way this forum was just before the new one, there were so many stickies that not a lot of fresh threads shown up at all… which verifies Pam’s point, perfectly.
With the “Carrara Information” sticky, we should be able to access all the threads we want within. I started a “Community Favorite Thread Links” Page. You made the top of the list! Hope that helps some.
My strategy is simple. My focus is industry standard 3D basics using Carrara as a vehicle to that end. I want my students to retain knowledge that can easily transfer to other programs. Carrara’s approachable learning curve makes this objective possible. I’ll be posting some student work this week.
And teaching them Carrara, as opposed to 3ds max, maya, or even Lightwave or Modo, they can actually afford the software at home should they want - and I’m sure many will want to. Could you come here and talk to our schools about incorporating such classes? (Kidding, of course!) If I get the time, I’d love to see about some Carrara outreach around here. I wouldn’t be able to find time to actually conduct the class, but perhaps I could find another, who could.
This is awesome! Or… like I say at work all the time…
“Awesome Sauce, Boss!”
