Watch the tech sessions from Autodesk University online


Autodesk has posted the classes from Autodesk University 2013 online. Around half come with an hour of on-screen video; for the rest, you can download the handouts.

Masterclasses from leading animators
Highlights include Oscar winner Chris Landreth’s session on animating human faces, VFX supervisor Peter Muyzers’ session on the visual effects of Elysium and, on a more practical level, Kenny Roy’s session on creating large-scale environments with simple copy-paste techniques.

3ds Max users have the largest selection to choose from, with over 35 classes. Maya users get 11, Mudbox users two, both requiring other software, and Softimage users just one video, again requiring Maya.

Autodesk also groups the videos by theme, so you can browse sessions on rigging, animation and VFX.
