We offer video training in 3D, compositing and visual effects tools and techniques. Choose from a range of software and techniques including Maya, Arnold, Nuke and more. We also offer technique based videos for areas such as Deep Compositing and Core Skills.
Where in the past we offered a range of training from on-site, to video, to consultancy, now spherevfx offers a simple choice of either video training or free written training.
Because all our training is either video based or written we can train anyone, from whole departments, small teams or individual artists/freelancers.
We’ve had the privilege of training artists from some of the top visual effects companies in the world including: Industrial Light and Magic, Framestore, DreamWorks Animation, MPC, Digital Domain, Cinesite, Animal Logic, Ghost VFX, Hybride, Luma Pictures, Pixomondo, Prime Focus, Sony Pictures Imageworks, and Weta Digital.
