    Cool Over 7 hours of Unity Training Videos - Download them now...

    Greetings everyone,

    I wanted to let everyone know that I’ve spent the last few nights putting together a quick batch of introductory training videos over Unity! These are more of a “crash course” styled video set, rather than a rigidly structured A-Z style of video you may be used to from 3D Buzz.

    These videos do come with a bit of a back story. As many of you may already know, I’ve been teaching small group of students how to work with Unity. Generally one of the first things I did to each student was to have them go through and look at the introductory help that’s included. I then had them watch the videos that Casey Jones (TheLorax over on the Unity forums, Lorax05 here on 3dbuzz) put together (you can find them here). Since all the coding we do is with C#, I then asked my students to reproduce the game using C# instead of Javascript.

    I was surprised at how much trouble many of them seemed to have, as well as by the number of questions that they started to send my way. So I figured the best way to help them out would be to create a set of videos that covered the same game that Casey created, with a little bit extra added on to the end for polish.

    When they were finished, I realized that there may be many of you out there who could possibly benefit from these videos, especially if you’re looking at Unity development with C#, so I’ve decided to release them here on the forums for anyone who might want to download them. Yes, you read the right... download them!

    Now, a word of warning: these videos were produced in a very casual manner that harkens back to the olden days of our training videos. If you’re unfamiliar, that basically means that these videos were recorded very late at night and they’re very “laid back.” That’s not to say that there isn’t focus; far from it. It’s just that among the explanations, we tend to have a little fun here and there, just to keep things interesting. If that kind of environment doesn’t appeal to you, then you may want to consider avoiding these videos.

    Thank you guys very much for your time. Look for some professionally-geared training from 3D Buzz (both free and for purchase) from 3D Buzz in the near future. In the meantime, I hope you find these videos useful!

    One last thing: I wanted to send a HUGE thank you out to Casey Jones for developing his proof-of-concept series. He did a fantastic job and his work was a huge inspiration on our end! For those of you that have not seen them, I highly recommend you watch them (see link above)!

    I step away for 15 minutes and look what happens. I can't take my eye off you guys for a moment.

    Actually this is exactly what I have been waiting for. I have wanted to take a peek into Unity and needed something just to get me going in the right direction but didn't want to waste people's time getting into the more formal streaming stuff.

    Thank you Buzz.
    I have figured out what the internet is. You know what they say about an infinite number of monkeys hitting keys at random on an infinite number of typewriters for an infinite amount of time? Well the internet is like that. There is some big cosmic alien running that experiment here in order to find the answer to some big question or to create the greatest piece of literature known to the universe. From what I have seen so far I am sorry to say they are going to be greatly disappointed.
