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.

Couldn’t agree more Garstor! I currently am logging the information into an Excel file for easy filtering, searching and sorting. I wouldn’t mind sharing this file with others if there was a place I could upload the document for others to access. I’ll research that some this weekend and find a way to make the file downloadable via a link (either as an Excel or PDF).

If databased, they could be put into a website for users to search.

PM me, we can probably work something out and I can put the file on my own (butt-ugly) website if need be.

DAZ3d did those I had nothing to do with those videos.  They were done by different people at DAZ, so you could just watch each one and post the creator or just post DAZ3D as the creator.

The one sort of frustrating thing about the videos DAZ did is that some of them are tutorials and some others were just quick scenes or tests showing off different features and had no instructional information.  The naming of some of the videos doesn’t help in a few cases too and a better name for the video.

One thing you might want to add next to some tutorials is if the tutorials is still a usable one.  Some things got changed in between Carrara versions and a tutorial may not be do able because of that with Carrara 8 due to changes.  Or, the tutorial could be for a plugin or addition that you can no longer get. or require you to download project files that you ca no longer get,

Thanks This is a huge help.

They have several others you can find too.

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?

Thanks, Steve. Really enjoy your videos, and when I get some time to tackle some of your ideas, I’m sure I’ll post some questions on YouTube!

I actually went to your channel and pulled all the video files there that relate to Carrara, but I haven’t tagged them all, so they don’t appear yet in the list. I’ll post a comment on this thread when I have all the YouTube vids tagged, so I hope you and the other authors will be sure to verify my list is complete. Never hurts to have a 2nd pair of eyes…. Or 3rd. And I’ve made a note to compare the final results against the playlist link you provided.

Thanks for keeping me honest! wink

First, sorry I misread your first post. I want to be sure to recognize the right persons for their work.

Second, I am actually tagging “tutorials” and “demos” as separate items. You should NOT see any demo vids in the tutorial list. If there is one there, it is a mistake, so please let me know! Some of DAZ’s vids are demos, so I have tagged them appropriately. (There is a separate post [#5 I believe] set aside to list demo videos, which are always fun to watch—- and then wonder how the heck the author did that! wink )

As of yet, I am not doing any checks as to the quality, accuracy, or currency of the vids. It’s not my place to make those decisions, so the list will ultimately be a complete list - the good, the bad, and the ugly! smile However, I *AM* tagging the version of Carrara that was used in the making of the videos when the information is available. I suppose that is another way to filter the videos, though I’m not sure yet how to handle those where the version # is unknown.

Thanks for your thoughts! smile

Woo HOO!

I will try to get this downloaded and take a look today… I wonder if there is a spreadsheet plugin for wordpress so this could be listed at CAFE…

I will compare your list with what’s already at Cafe so we can fill in the holes…!

Thanks for all the hard work!

If you just want a sortable table of links and info about them, that can be accomplished with just HTML and a free JavaScript library.

These are not the tutorials you’re looking for. Move along.

I would be happy to provide the file as a MS Office Excel Workbook if that would help, Holly.

Also, please keep in mind that I am still updating this list, so consider what it would take to update a list in CAFE as I post updates.

Thank you so much for the tutorial lists, as a visual learner I take in more from a five minute video than I would reading a manual for an hour. Downloaded the complexity pdf and will start going through it.
