Develop hair and fur for VFX
In this course, students will discover the basics of the grooming. Students will create 2 major groom projects, one haircut and one animal / creature. They will learn from scratch how to anticipate a groom, they will discover different grooming tools, and will be able to face common "big productions" situations. We will also take a look at the look-dev and texturing part of grooming. *Note: A free 10-week Yeti license will be provided to non-U.S. residents enrolled in this course.
