New course "Blender 2.8x EEVEE made easy"

My new course, “Blender 2.8x Eevee made easy”, is finally finished and launched!!

You will find it on Udemy (30 days special price link) (online course (easier for me to help you there), or FlippedNormals (download content to your computer, then you don’t have to be online);

Eevee is the new Render Engine in Blender and a lot of people have already started to love it.
Others feel that, compared to cycles, the result is too bad and only uses Eevee for prototyping since it is super fast!

Whoever you are, if you work in Blender, this course is for you.

I will go through everything there is to know about Eevee. I start with describing the idea and technique behind it and then continue through all aspects in 20 sessions.

Then I follow it up with 30 sessions on a scene from the Wild West (included in the course of course) where we go through all the stuff in practice, so that light, shadows, reflections, glass, smoke, the material and all other things finds it proper settings.

NB! This scene is especially chosen to be hard on Eevee. It has a lot of objects, mixes outside and inside light, has a lot of smoke, glass and reflections and uses procedural material to some extend… in short…all those things that make it hard to succeed using Eevee. Still… the result will be great :)!

Details about topics below!
Have a great day!

About the Author

My real name is Joakim Tornhill, but most people know me as "Blender Insight"... the procedural node & material guy :). I love how Blender can turn a simple sphere in to a photo realistic cherry, orange, planet or football....without using any external sources like images at all. That is amazing! However, I can do other Blender stuff as well (been at it since 2012) and share my knowledge as much as I can on YouTube at:
