So happy when I found out a podcast like this existed. As a multimedia specialist with the government I work in the creative cloud and AE a ton but I’m new to the 3D world. I tried the trial version of Houdini and thought it was way too difficult. Cinema 4d is my next dive since I’ve worked in C4d Lite and the new release will be cheaper. I know this podcast is for people who already work in the 3D world but maybe a dumbed down explanation (for people like myself) about where to begin in the overwhelming world of 3D. Keep up the good work! Greyscale+ sounds interesting but probably too difficult for me right now.

Best Podcast On Itunes

Hey Nick, Chad & Chris-

Love the podcast, it's amazing and I eagerly await each episode. As a college kid with a background in design & illustration, you guys' tutorials really opened up my eyes to 3D and fall in love with motion design. I've since been able to implement 3D into my workflow for amazing results. The podcast is super helpful, especially hearing about your guys' experience in the industry (Chad) as my dream is to eventually be an art/creative director at a groundbreaking studio. Please please keep up the amazing work, humor, advice and just being awesome in general as it's helping me a lot in both starting my career and getting through boring days.

All the best,
Britton from Colorado

Excellent podcast for motion designers!

Nick and his crew have been sharing valuable information about how to become a better animator and motion designer for MANY years now. The only thing I don't like about the this podcast is that I can't find it on Stitcher - which I'm using on Android for podcasts.
