Watch Part 1 Grab yourself a cup of coffee coz this tutorial is one of my longest yet. We go through a range of different topics including, material nodes, uv unwrapping, lighting, material passes and some very complex compositing. This tutorial is for Advanced users who want to learn how to take a finished model, and put it in a polished scene. Oh and if you finish this tutorial, give yourself a pat on the back. It’s a long one ;)
