Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome to this collection of tips and tricks from Digital-Tutors. This series of tutorials are a bit different than many of the other courses you'll find here at Digital-Tutors, so let's take a moment to explain what to expect from this course. Rather than creating a single project, these tutorials are independent of each other and contain a variety of instructors and software versions. So, feel free to jump between tutorials and watch whichever one seems interesting. Another unique feature is this course doesn't have a single set of project files. The project files for this course are included on a per-tutorial basis, so on each tutorial page, you'll see the "download project files" link if that tutorial comes with project files. Remember, the techniques taught in this course are mostly software version-independent, so even if there's a newer version of the software, the core technique should still apply. So, don't discount a tutorial even if it's not using the newest version. So with that, let's go ahead and start watching some tips and tricks.
