Thread: Gonna bite the bullet

  1. Default Gonna bite the bullet

    Iv been pondering the 3D software for sometime, guess I will get it unless someone out there thinks a total waste. I have the 2D but I can see where the 3 D might really enhance it. Am I wrong. I know and expect some long hours in the learning stage, I know it's not as easy as the promo makes it look. What about it. Good move or waste of 200 bucks.

    John, thank you for your reply. No I cannot honestly say I have mastered anything yet, including the machine itself. Iam learning as I go. You are probably right about the third grade type stuff I did in 2d. I buy many, far to many patterns. I will take your advice for now and sit on it until I get to at least 6th grade on 2d. I have everything else they offer I think. Being in bussiness myself, I know it is often more cost effective to sub out some things, even though I can do them, it is TIME we value. Thanks for the advice. I'll sit it out a while.

    This is where I think LHR is losing sales, If people really felt comfortable after looking at tutorials and videos and training from LHR then they would be more apt to buy. I know I might consider it if I really felt I understood how they worked. Right now I really don't feel confident enough to purchase them and I have had numerous machines over the last three years and completed hundreds of projects.

    Here are two videos about Pattern Modeling & Vector Drawing Suites from the 2013 Conference that we posted under the BLOG, but they also need to be placed under the Software Tutorials:

    In my mind, I think the existing tutorials cover the tools/techniques reasonably well. It then becomes a matter of applying what is taught into real-world projects you want to create.

    I admit I continually struggle to imagine creating tutorials that cover something that has not already been covered. Everyone will sincerely appreciate specific topic suggestions for additional tutorials that are 'missing'. We don't want to simply rehash what is already covered in the existing tutorials, unless it is necessary for further clarification. Lots of ideas for ways to help speed up the learning curve are being discussed (behind the scene) - your topic suggestions and ideas are welcome!

    In case anyone is wondering, I bit. Already learned how to resolve and make interesting depth patterns.

    That is good news (I'm proud of you). Don't let anything hold you back - keep going for it and have fun!
