Old Recordings from 2010 - 2011 (during 402 & 501)

Jim Berton

A few years back around 2010 - 2011, the generous Mr Jim Berton from the Luxology forums, hosted, free of charge, a series of webinars for the modo community. They usually went for 2 hours on a Saturday (that's 3-4am here in Sydney) and each one would be on a specific topic, where he would bring into his studio, an expert to tell us some of their own personal tips and tricks. Often he would have up to 150 attendees. I really miss them and hope that one day soon Jim has the time to bring 'em back.

Oh, and don't think for one moment that because they're from 402 and 501 that it's too old. On the contrary, there are still a lot of neat stuff in there that's relevant even now. Where possible, I have tried to break down the videos into topics along with timestamps so you can navigate to the stuff you want quicker.

The Gradient Editor

Webinar Date Dec 20, 2010
Area Covered

Everything you've ever wanted to know about working with the Gradient Editor in the Shader Tree.

(Because the Gradient Editor works similarly to the Graph Editor - some of his tips can be applied when animating too!)

  Gradient Editor

Tip: When you want to insert a new key into either the Gradient or Graph editor - it's not obvious how to do it and there's no button. You can either press Ctrl-Alt, or simply press the middle mouse button (MMB).
