Software agnostic: going beyond using a tool
VFX Wizard's trainings are software-agnostic, focusing on techniques over tools. They include the world's only rendering theory online course, an in-depth course that covers every aspect of 3D rendering, from global illumination to physically based materials. Only basic math knowledge is pre-requisite and every topic is explained both formally and from a practical standpoint.
Ever wondered what the real and imaginary parts of a complex index of refraction are? Probably not. Yet, the advanced rendering theory course explains this and hundred of students were surprised to find interesting and productive abstact matters such as vector math, rendering equations and physically based light transport.
Gaining this kind of insight in how rendering software really works will make you more productive and self confident.
