The purpose of this thread is to collect, consolidate, and make available a comprehensive list of all video tutorials available on Carrara.

The 5 posts that follow are placeholders for various ways the videos will be sorted and listed:
- Tutorials By Topic
- Tutorials By Level of Complexity / Expertise
- Tutorials By Author
- Tutorials By Title
- Demos By Topic

I started my search on YouTube (where I have identified approximately 350 tutorials and demos so far). I will expand the list to include other sites in the near future - e.g., CarraraCafe and Vimeo - after I have exhausted the list for YouTube.

If you know of any tutorials you or others have done, be sure to drop a post on this thread, and I will be sure to include them.

However, for now, please keep in mind the list is not yet complete!

UPDATE 1 (May 13, 2013):
===================
209 tutorials have been catalogued so far.

Progress has been slower as unexpected real life events have gotten in the way. I am slowly working through the tutorials I have identified. I still hope to complete my initial catalog of YouTube video tutorials in the next week, and will update the lists as my search expands. I will post date stamps for when the lists have been updated.

I have changed the access method. (Thanks, Garstor, for the suggestion to use DropBox.) Now, clicking on the links below will bring up a download option in your browser. Clicking on the download will drop a PDF file onto your computer that you can access anytime. Bringing up the PDF files will show the list of currently catalogued videos. Each one has a hot link. You should be able to directly access the videos by clicking on those links.

There is a separate PDF file for each of the sort methods described above. Download just the ones you want or download them all.

Please let me know if you find a link that does not work.

Thanks and enjoy!

You are welcome and hope you find these lists useful. I am finding creating this list is very helpful for my own learning about Carrara.

It is by no means complete, but it is a start. I will make updates several times a week over the next month.

Wow FractalDimensia,
this is so freaking beautiful, man! You really did an outstanding job! I put a direct link to this within the table of content - but this baby should really get stickied! We’ll have to talk to Pam and Richard and see if that can happen. Fantastic!
Thank You!

Dartanbeck cool hmm

Thanks, DB, for your assistance!

Like all my Carrara work, it’s WIP! wink Much more to come.

Thanks, Jay. I am pretty sure I have these captured in my spreadsheet (along with about 200 more) that I am slowly working my way through. Still, I’ll be sure to verify each one. I’d hate to have a good one slip through the cracks! smile

BTW, “WWWDAZ3DCOM” appears as the author. Would you prefer I post your name instead?

I concur with the others that this is an amazing resource. Great work FD!

But - given the nature of my paying job wink - I have to add that this should be put into a database (or at least a spreadsheet) for better access and searching.
