I always wanted to work in the game industry in one way or another, but I thought I couldn't have the skills in 3D to bring it that far.
After trying many tutorials on YouTube and making a course here and there without big success, I thought maybe I am not good enough for this - but then I found the newly started CG fast track series on YouTube, last year.
The teaching style clicked instantly with me and is unique in this business:
Everything is explained and shown in an excellent manner and repeated over the well build courses, which are build on each other.
Without any exaggeration, Robby is one of the best teachers in this part of the business and the value you get from the courses is in no relation to the price. The discord is also the best learning group I ever found on the internet and everyone is helpful - also Robby is very active and is helping where he can... never saw a teacher this active in a community.
I am not only progressing more than I ever thought I could - I am also confident enough to know that the courses will help me find a job in the industry.
If you are thinking about joining... do it!
I´ve tried to get into 3D Art on and of for about 12 years. Trying to learn Maya, Cinema 4D and other Software Suites.
I struggled because the tutorials I´ve found weren´t structured enough or to advanced. Last year I decided to give Blender a try and started with tutorials around the web. There was my old struggle again... and then I stumbled over cgfasttrack.
My skills and understanding has increased drastically since joining. The follow along Screenshots are a blessing, the courses are presented in a great way and a rewarding learning path where you can see results. A great, helpful and respectful community is what I got on top of it. It´s never to late to start your dream...
I started from scratch years ago. I luckily stumbled upon the sword in the stone tutorial and instantly could tell the difference between all of the other Youtube tutorials and Robby's way of teaching.
To say it was a game changer would be an understatement. I've already been featured on Blender Nation twice and have had people in the game industry reach out to me about my portfolio.
This isn't to brag but it is all because of the skill set I have gained from CGFT. Being able to watch a course and memorizing the steps and understanding the why's of what is going on is so powerful.
A lot of tutorials tell you what to do, CGFT tells you why, when, where, who and everything in between. Its a knowledge that you will not find browsing Youtube.
The discord community is awesome! If you really want to kickstart CG as a hobby or profession there is not another site I would recommend!
For years I dipped in and out of blender and 3D modelling, always giving up thinking it was simply something I would never be able to do.
I decided to give things another go this year and found the CG Fast Track Blender Beginner Tutorial on 27/07/2021 on YouTube, the teaching style clicked instantly for me so I signed up 28/07/2021!
If you really want to learn Blender/3D Modelling and a load of stuff essential to CG then CG Fast Track is definitely the most well structured and thought out series of modules you could wish for! Still so much to learn and with such a great team creating the modules, community to be part of growing and learning together I would definitely without question recommend CG Fast Track 100%
1. If you still considering joining - the quality of the courses is beyond my expectations for the price that it is. I'm happy with everything they bring to the website and honestly i don't think i would get through so much information so quickly and productive as i did following the screenshot method. It's so simple and therefore genius.
2. Favourite thing is that courses are for beginners and they're getting more intermediate and advanced gradually. It's always interesting bc you start to understand what you do :)
3. I would recommend this course 100000% Literally thanks to cgft I got a job in game industry waay soner than i could imagine. I'm forever grateful for joining. I'm sure i would struggle without them so much. Don't hesitate people. It's the best ❤️
Quality online education can be really hard to find, especially when it comes to the wide (and sometimes scary) world of 3D. Anyone who has trawled YouTube and other online recourses for guidance can attest to that feeling of finishing a project without coming away with a deeper understanding of what it is they just did. CGFT is so, so different. With CGFT you finish a project with a greater and deeper understanding of what being a 3D artist is all about, as well as a kick ass project to be proud of. Knowledge, comprehension, and skill are all equally prioritised and taught.
On so many occasions I have followed other tutorials that are simply a step by step, and do not give you an insight into why each step is important. CGFT gives you real and practical under-the-hood knowledge, coupled with professional insight, a combination which can be so hard to find on the internet.
12 months ago, I had never touched any 3D software of any kind. Now I am at a point where I am creating 3D art I am proud of, and have the confidence to attempt any idea that enters my imagination. I could not recommend CGFT and its community of artists and students any higher. Without it there is no way I would be at this point, where I have the confidence, skills, and knowledge to pursue my dreams.
If your goal is to become a professional, take a hobby further, or just explore a new area of interest, this is the place to be.
Why would I join CG Fast Tack I hear you say?
These courses are intelligently designed to get you up to speed yet not overwhelm you. Not only are they fun and exciting to build, but easy to follow with videos and screenshots that allow you to follow accurately and at your own pace. If you get stuck, it’s real easy to look back and problem solve yourself, or get help from other enthusiastic members on our newly set up Discord community.
There are courses for beginners right through to more advanced users covering many relevant topics.
Importantly, these courses are created by Robby, who has years of real-world experience in the 3D industry. So you only learn good habits and the best way of doing something. The fact that his students are already getting jobs in the industry is a credit to how effective his courses are.
Personally, I love how quickly I am learning and I can feel my confidence quickly grow with each project. Making my own short film no longer feels out of reach or impossible.
On the Internet, you can find many great artists, and some of them have tutorials and, while they are very talented artists, some of them aren't good teachers. I spent a lot of time searching the Internet. Skillshare, LinkedIn, Udemy and, of course, YouTube. I felt overwhelmed and confused.
After trying some of the beginner tutorials and being frustrated, I thought, well, this just isn't for me. Perhaps, I am too old. This is for young people and, then, I found CG Fast Track minecraft tutorial. I did the minecraft tutorial and then the sword in the stone. After that I went to their website and signed up. No hesitation. I haven't regretted it one bit.
One of the things I love about the course is that each module builds on previous knowledge. Everything ties together and reinforces previous skills.
Add to it no more frustration of stopping the video, rewinding, pausing, squinting and trying to see what function was selected. We have screenshots to follow along with after watching the video. What a fantastic idea!
Apart from the screenshots, Robby is a fantastic teacher, he tells you WHY you do something, not just push this button and change this setting.
If you want to jump into the world of CG, you have come to the right place. Come join us. I hope to see you on the CGFT Discord showing off your work.
Trying to get into 3D can be difficult with many tutorials scattered around online and many courses costing $800 to teach a single aspect of 3D. CG Fast Track has a structured approach to take you from beginner to advanced step by step at a wonderfully affordable price!
With the step-by-step screenshots to help you along after the lecture you won't get lost along the way. There is also a wonderful Discord community that is very engaging as you work from level to level through the course!
Whether you are after creating CG or Video Game assets, or just a hobbyist looking to dive into 3D this course is worth the price! You won't find a more structured or engaging course on the internet!
I have tried to learn blender on and off for 4-5 years, but without spending huge amounts of money I never found any tutorials that were truly engaging and explained not only what you were doing, but why. That is until I found CG Fast track. And for the first time I'm fully engaged in what I'm doing and developing an understanding and that's all thanks to cg fast track.
My favourite things about the program are the step by step learning structure. But also the incredible community that comes with it.
Without a question I would recommend cg fast track to anyone who had a desire to learn blender.
What would I say to someone who is still considering joining?
If you are prepared to do the work, you will learn a lot.
The courses are very structured and the step by step feature makes it very easy to follow along and learn. I've done the main blender YouTube tutorials without the step by step guide, they are much harder to follow.
The course is expensive compared to YouTube, but you will definitely get your money's worth. You could probably find similar YouTube tutorials. But I doubt they will be presented in such an organized way, that is created by an industry professional.
What is my favorite thing about joining the program?
Robby, the discord community and the step by step guides, they are game changers.
Would I recommend this to others?
You not only get the knowledge to do some exciting projects, what is way more worth is that you learn to think a certain way. CG Fast Track takes you by the hand and gets you from knowing absolutely nothing about 3D to an advanced 3D Artist. (in literally no time)
You learn not just practical things to get one specific task done, you rather learn how to think as a 3D Artist, how to face problems and solve them and how to approach things. The organized teaching style of the instructor takes your fear for failing.
3D is a wide space of different and complicated topics, CG Fast Track makes it look and feel easy like you wouldn't imagine.
Stop looking for your 100th youtube tutorial or paying hundreds and thousands of dollars on one specific course. Join the program for much less and get the most structured and most streamlined learning platform I've ever come across.
It was worth every penny and even more. It changed the way I think and I'm incredible proud to be a part of that journey!
PS: Our Discord Server is full of amazing people.
-If you are considering joining then let me tell you that this program is 100% worth it, I have looked at many online tutorials, courses and so on while trying to learn to use Blender, and CGFastTrack is the best by a landslide. There wasn't a single moment where I was at a loss what to do, and the speed at which I learned new things and could implement them was inspiring to me.
-Structure would have to be my favourite, the separation of courses into specific areas that build upon each other, how the courses are then split into parts, chapters and sections, meaning if you need to look up a very specific thing it's very easy to do, and with the screenshots of literally every step you can take all the time you need and double check if something didn't go right.
-If I knew someone who wanted to get into CG or wanted to sharpen their abilities I would definitely recommend them FastTrack.
The CG Fast Track community is some of the nicest and friendliest communities i've ever seen, and despite any struggles you may have in Blender, someone has always got your back.
For those who still considering joining, let me share a few of my experiences.
I have zero skill in 2D, not a mindful observer of surroundings. Everything has changed since I join CGFT; every time I see structures, I begin asking how should I model this thing; this object has dust, a little moss, scratches, etc. Now I am aware a bit of the depth, colours, light, camera frames. The step by step is the most significant help, efficient way to revisit the courses without trouble to spend more time, e.g. take a look at nodes, settings, etc.
If you are busy and sometimes distracted, on and off, the community is the best place conducive; it will boost your passion; Robby shares Industry knowledge gives you feedback on your progress from a professional perspective!
I started about 3 years ago looking for a hobby to do after work. I found Blender and thought I might as well try it out. For the first 1-2 years I bounced between free online tutorials and trying to figure stuff out myself it was very discouraging and I lost my enthusiasm.
But one day when I was surfing YouTube, I saw the Blender 2.8 Beginner Tutorial from CG Fast Track and gave it a shot. The way it was presented with short chapters and the screenshots made it easy to understand while also making good progress.
Once I finished the tutorial, I was very proud with my results and I went to the CG Fast Track website and saw the range of other topic I could learn and I instantly bought a subscription.
Since that time, I have learned many things and even created a few scenes myself with the knowledge from the tutorials and started showing them online.
That has really push me to want to become a full time 3D artist in the industry and I believe that this community is the best way to do so.
In fact, my mother tongue is not English, which makes it even more troublesome for me to look up related lessons on the Internet.
However, every lesson of CGFastTrack comes with subtitles and screenshot operations, allowing me to understand the course through a short picture review.
And CGFastTrack has marked the relevant difficulty in every lesson, so that the learning process can be gradual, instead of learning a course on youtube and not knowing what to do next.
I think that CGFastTrack is easily one of the best courses compared to other paid courses.
I wanted to learn 3D to create games and struggled to find study resources. Until the sword in the stone tutorial. Seeing the intro and being told that I can make this epic scene really made me excited and happy. Bought the membership soon after completion. And I haven’t regretted anything since. CG Fast Track is truly a god send. I definitely would encourage anyone to buy this membership cus it’s awesome.
My favorite thing about this program would be seeing a new course. Seeing an awesome scene and knowing that you will be taught how to build it and the fact that you can. Simply .🔥
I would definitely recommend this to others.
Anyone who wants to really learn animation and dig into the industry or just as a hobby would learn a lot from the CG Fast Track courses.
One of the main reasons I joined was to learn animation to make my own animated series. Also because I have loved animation since I was a little kid.
One thing I have really loved in joining, is the community as it is full of talented and nice people from all different backgrounds.
I also love how you have the step by step guides as well as the videos to allow you to go at your own speed better.
I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in animation and wants a door way into the world of animation at a great price.
To someone who's considering joining I would say "don't hesitate and join us this instant".
My favourite thing is the general design of the courses as well as the pedagogy and experienced advises of the teacher.
There's basically everything I want to learn in Blender or 3D in general. As for recommending, I already have so yes.
I am really learning and enjoying this. I want to thank you all for this endlessly. ❤️
I always had an interest for 3D modeling, but the resources available for studying were always... let's say disappointing. At best you can become one trick pony(master of donuts ). At worse you waste a lot of time.
I like the way CG Fast Track is built, it's engaging you do cool stuff even on beginner lvl courses AND you get a clear road map what's next and what you could attempt at your current lvl, which is the best way to solidify your newly acquired skills.
The follow after video approach is Genius. As I'm not good with watching videos ...more of the listen music and read to learn type, so those screen shots gave me wings.
I have been looking for courses that build on each other for a long time and came across CG Fast Track.
Robby is an excellent teacher and I have made a lot of progress. Don't wait and join us, there is no better place to learn CG.
Robby Branham thank you so much for your hard work in putting this whole thing together!
I had spent months trying to learn from random YouTube videos, then I found yours with the minecraft scene and that was the golden ticket for me. Love your teaching style, helping understand what each function actually is and is doing.
I've made more progress the last few weeks than I have in months thanks to these courses!
In less than a months time, I've went from barely being able to create a 3-D logo and not knowing the correct settings to render anything to learning how to make very professional quality 3-D animation videos that look like something Pixar or someone in Hollywood would create. I will admit that I'm up till 4:00am working on stuff but that's just because I'm having so much fun and find this course very impressive. I even impress myself. My family, my friends, they're all in awe with the content I've been posting with jaw dropping emojis, impressed with what I'm able to create now.
In a month's time, I've learned how to build fairly complex objects with grade-A textures and shaders, rig and animate collections and take really good action shots by animating the cameras and lights. But that's not it, during this time I've also learned a lot about lighting techniques, like where to place lights and what colors to use. I'm learning so quick that I get so excited about my abilities and skills that I just have to stop for a moment and calm myself down. There's things that Robby teaches in these courses that I would not have even known to look for in YouTube tutorials.
I'm just so impressed that I really can't even express how awesome this program is. I could write and write and write about all the good things I feel about this program but simply put, this is one of the funnest learning experiences I've ever had with anything and I've learned in a month's time what would have taken years if I was trying to learn it by myself.
Excellent, excellent program that Robby has put together.
• My path has led to working on AAA games projects such as Sunset Overdrive, Bloodborne, Recore, and commercial projects for Apple, Samsung, Chevy, Toyota, and other high profile brands.
• More importantly, at one time I was a beginner too. I remember how difficult that path was, and we are here to simplify that process as much as we can.
