Completely understood, and as I said - I'm not trying to be an ass. I was just clearly stating an opinion, one that most people probably would disagree with. I just work slower in Max as it's not an application I use everyday, but am working on changing that. Will probably be purchasing this video simply because it's more basic, love the tips in this one. Thanks again.

Thanks vividbox. Keep in mind that each video has its own instructor and each instructor has its own style plus each DVD type can yield different pacing. For example the pillar video is sped up because its impossible to capture something like that real time without it being 8-10 hours, also the fountain. However for texuring DVD, anatomy sculpting, zbrush3.5, all unreal DVDs, max 101, and so on are all done at much slower of a pace. Actually the Max 101 DVD is very slow paced compared.

SO while some more advanced DVDs may be sped up to make sure and show the entire process, most of them arent.

Hope this clears some things up for you.

Ok, first off - I love all the tutorials on this site. The reason I don't buy them is they're too fast with little explanation sometimes. It's hard to justify paying 4 dollars for something I can't follow as well as I could if the video was slower. I know it comes with project files and yada yada, but those aren't of interest to most as they're doing the tutorial to learn how to make the model, not already have a copy.

As for THIS tutorial, it was fantastic from what I could follow. A lot of things were kind of odd that you did and I'm far to lazy to sit there and rewind and play and rewind and play. Hopefully you guys will take that into consideration and maybe slow the videos down a bit or give more explanation as to why you do things the way you do in the videos. Thanks again!

(Sorry if my input seemed harsh, I wasn't trying to be, these really are great videos)
