Volume 1:  http://eat3d.com/cry3_intro_vol1 
 In this first DVD of our series, Hélder Pinto starts by walking you through many of the common features of CryENGINE 3 SDK like Customizing the User Interface, Folder Structure, Viewports, Entities, Panels, Objects and much more. Once a firm foundation has been placed, Hélder immediately begins going through the creation of an entire level from scratch. He begins by creating a custom terrain and from there goes into creating the lush vegetation. Other topics in the creation include using brushes, basic lighting, environment tab, fog volumes and finally water volumes. 

Volume 2:  http://eat3d.com/cry3_intro_vol2 
 In this second DVD of our series, Hélder Pinto continues where he left off on the creation of an entire level from scratch. Hélder starts off by placing particles in the scene and then goes into the “Boids” system to place things like flocks of birds. From there he goes into many other topics including decals, roads, prefabs, archetypes, placing automated doors and ropes, setting up sounds, using voxels, creating an entire cave scene, viz areas, environment cubemaps, reflections, clouds, materials and much more. Hélder concludes the level section by setting up the final lighting. 

Volume 3:  http://eat3d.com/cry3_intro_vol3 

In this third DVD of our series, Hélder Pinto goes into more intermediate and advanced topics now that the first level is complete. Hélder starts off by explaining how to create and add custom decals, roads, and terrain layers to the level. From there he goes into deferred lighting, lightbox, environment cubemaps and probes for image-based lighting, heightmaps, using the CryTIF exporter, materials, advanced vegetation, and particle creation. Hélder then goes through the entire creation of a custom prop inside 3ds Max and then bringing it into the editor with materials. 

These DVD's  will provide you with an invaluable amount of information needed to start creating your own levels in CryENGINE 3 SDK today.

All Eat3D products are perfect. These DVDs are awesome. I was Hélder's Pinto fan before you published these cource, so I was twice happy to learn it.
I knew Eat3D will give us a CE cource and it came right in a time for me.
Thank you for your work, both Hélder Pinto and Eat3D group!

got the digital download, these videos are worth the price they ask. Best tutorials I've used, youtube videos just don't cut it even though they can be quite useful (also free).
