For many, many months the Tuts+ team has been working to bring all the individual sites into one place, a single Tuts+ site. Doing this gives us the opportunity to grow into new areas and allows you to find all the content you want from across the whole network.
Rest assured, the changes behind the scenes are huge, but what excites me most (and I think you'll agree) is that we'll have the freedom to cover a broader range of topics under the umbrella of Tuts+.
Where Aetuts+ tried to stick specifically with After Effects content in the past, we are now going to be branching into other ares of production from rigging lights, to choosing lenses, to concealing lavs.
And it doesn't stop there. With our merge into a single Tuts+ site, we'll be expanding our CG coverage like never before. Bringing you new training content featuring cutting edge tools and techniques, including creating characters with Pixar's OpenSubD technology, 3D texture painting in Mari and creating film quality 3D projections and visual effects with FumeFX, Krakatoa and Nuke, to name just a few.
So whether you're a beginner looking to get started, or an intermediate to advanced level artist interested in expanding your skill set, we're focused on helping you gain the skills necessary to work in today's ever xchanging and competitive landscape.
For those of you tuned into our social channels (you are following them, right?!) nothing has changed on that front. Follow Tuts+ After Effects on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and Tuts+ CG on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
For more on the improvements happening here, take a look at the introductory post by our Editorial Manager, David.
