In this training video for the 3D modelling software Carrara, expert author Phil Wilkes picks up from where he left off in his beginners title for Infinite Skills.  This tutorial is a look at advanced techniques for creating objects within Carrara.

Phil starts with a quick overview of managing resources, preferences and other housekeeping items.  From there, he jumps right into UV mapping, which is utilized extensively throughout the training course.  Covering subjects such as movement, constraints, shaders and texturing, you will dig deep into the capabilities of this software.  Phil covers much requested subjects such as creating and modelling your own clothes, and creating and rendering full scenes.  This course is not for the beginner, and you should be comfortable with the basics of using Carrara before jumping into this training course.

By the completion of this title, you will have had extensive experience in creating, modelling, animating and rendering 3D objects with Carrara.  Comprehensive working files are included with the course, so you can work with the same resources as the author, and learn on the exact files he is using.
