In this Carrara 8.5 training video, expert author Phil Wilkes introduces you to the updated version of this well respected 3D modeling software package from Daz3D. This training course is designed for the complete beginner, meaning no prior Carrara experience is needed.

You will start by touring the user interface, and then move into learning to work with objects and Poser/Daz content. Phil teaches you about working with cameras, creating lighting effects, rendering, primitives, shaders, and hair. He shows you how to animate, replicate, and use Puppeteer. You will learn about bullet physics, creating and editing a particle system, and various types of modeling. Once you have learned how to use the tools within Carrara, Phil will show you how to put it all together to create amazing images. This training course will teach you about the new features in this latest version, including new light icons, using the genesis character presets, and improvements made to the sequencer, keyframing, and animation tools.

By the completion of this video based training course, you will have the knowledge and ability to create your own environments and animate your own figures. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
