Introducing Our Level-Up VFX Tutorial Series

You’re not new to the toolset or skills behind crafting real-time visual effects, and you’re hungry for more, right? Our studio has spent the last year diving into how we can create a new series that targets VFX artists just like you — in fifteen minutes or less. Ready to level up?

What’s a Level Up?

Get ready to learn how to recreate an in-engine real-time visual effect by one of our studio artists. We’ll spend around fifteen minutes explaining how to craft the effect with the artist’s personal tips and tricks throughout.

In the end, you’ll have been walked through how to make the entire effect leveraging the skills and tools you already know how to use, but perhaps now understand how to use them in a different and exciting way. Paired with each video, we’ll post a blog version for those who learn best with a visual and written reference!

Take a look at one of the real-time effects our team will teach you how to make!

Who Is a Level Up For?

At the beginning of each episode, we will explain what tools and skills you need to already understand and have knowledge of in order to follow along. Level Ups are geared toward those already familiar with real-time visual effects, in-engine work, and VFX terminology, but will have insight and knowledge to share with all levels.

How Are the Effects for Level Ups Chosen?

Our resident Beyond-FX artists select the effects themselves, but definitely feel free to leave us comments and suggestions on each episode, and we’ll share them with our team!

What If I Have Questions After Watching?

We love questions! Be sure to leave your questions (and comments or suggestions) in the comment area of each episode once they’re released, and we’ll be sure to respond.

Questions on our tutorial? Drop us comments on the videos and we'll reply!

Where Do I Find These Level Ups?

We’ll release Level Up episodes on our YouTube channel starting December 1, 2023, with companion blog posts.

We are so excited to share our latest installment of tutorial content with the real-time VFX community. We hope you are as inspired by this series as we are and can’t wait to see how you continue to level up your craft in under twenty minutes!
