Introduction to the RetopoFlow Add-on


Curious about RetopoFlow? I think it's one of the most impressive Blender add-ons available at the moment, and I just love watching people use it to retopologize a model. CG Cookie has now released an in-depth training for it - available for free!

Jonathan Williamson writes:

If you have a high-resolution sculpted model that you wish to animate, texture, or otherwise manipulate, then you'll need to retopologize it. Unfortunately, retopology in Blender can be a terribly tedious and difficult process. The tools simply aren't optimized for a retopology workflow. This is why I designed RetopoFlow, an add-on built for artists that completely changes the way we approach retopology in Blender.

Since RetopoFlow offers a very different workflow than we're accustomed to in Blender I've just released a complete, free, Introduction to RetopoFlow course on CG Cookie.

  1. Its indeed a really good addon, but I tested the git version a few days ago and it generates a really serius bugs on the viewport every X number of actions, not sure why. the viewport become suddenly freezed but only the viewport were i was working, i could easily change the time line for a viewport and keep working but it wasn't the best experience.
