Wondering how to access the archive articles
We're still working on the archive. The goal is to bring it back in some form, but that's still to be determined. Tentatively we may just start uploading the archived videos to YouTube.
One way or another, the content should be made accessible again in the coming weeks.
I like the idea of the archives being uploaded to youtube. It would save you bandwidth no? Being that it is original content, Wouldn't you be able to monetize from that as well?
Looking forward to getting the archive back. I know that certain Blender features I use from time to time are still there, particularly relating to using the video editing features.
Thanks, looking forward to it!
I'd prefer to have the videos in downloadable form with supplemental files like before,
as it is more comfortable to use
Don't remove the archives! :), I enjoy the old full walkthrough videos of modeling cupcakes, pumpkins, etc as it reinforces using skills that you learn from the main courses :).
Yep....many a time I needed a fresh review of a project so it really helps to have them in my library as I need them...thanks CGC for working on this
I also wanted to point out that all the links in the youtube videos to archive files are now broken.
Would love to have access to the archives as well! They were super-useful :)
Guys I think this link will give you the access to Archieve:http://cgcookiearchive.com/archive/
Just a heads up that this page has been removed as the server is no longer active.
i going through the moddelling a prosche 911 GT3 series. In youtube i got to part 4 then read if i wanted to continue id have to find the rest on Vimeo. I was busy on serie 5 when now Vimeo has taken of the course. Where can i find the last part of the course.
Unfortunately that course had to be discontinued before I was able to finish it.
These two courses use the same basic approach but with much more up to date methods:
+1 on getting the archive back currently, i have not exhausted the content yet but i figure at some point i would try to go back to old tutorials and sort of update it as an exercise.
The archive will be back! I'm in the process of uploading it all to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/blendercookie
Since we have 7ish years of videos to get through, however, it's going to take some time.
Hello. Could it be possible that you guys upload cloth sculpting tutorial from archives. I think Kent was it's author. It is really awesome and straight to the point tut. Planes of the human head from Doris is great too. I had those on my HDD but lost it over time.Cheers,n1k
Hey nn1k2 , I'll definitely upload those when I come to them 👍 For the time being, we have an updated video of sculpting cloth here: https://cgcookie.com/lesson/clothing
Seems like actually putting the archive back on a working server would be a far quicker way of giving people access to it than uploading them to youtube.
I actually looked at what you have uploaded to youtube so far and to be honest it is pretty disappointing.
Why exactly wasn't the archive just moved to a new server it has been out of commission for fairly long time?
Quite honestly getting the archive up and running again first would be more use to more people then a progressive migration to youtube.
I can empathies with your position somewhat my backup drive got corrupted and I lost a lot of the stuff I previously had from the archive... I thought to myself well at least I can rely on the CGCookie archive.
Looks like I learned a lesson without a video tutorial!
Oh I forgot to add a number of your tutorials & workflows actually make reference to other tutorials in the archive so you might want to look at that.
Here is an example https://cgcookie.com/lesson/week-1-kickoff
The spooky tree tutorial is an archive reference. I guess you could go through every single page of your server looking for the archive references, or you know maybe just put the archive back up?
Quick question: There was a great amount of really good 3ds Max training around here in the archive. Is it all deleted and lost?
Such a shame ... I know you guys love Blender, but the Max training was also good.
Please let me know what's the latest on access to the archive. While I was a member a couple of years ago, I downloaded Beorn Leonard's Fundamentals of Animation. I just got around to working through it and there seems to be one video missing (the second one for the tail, number 2.6 maybe?).
Hey Ron, we'll be adding that course to our YouTube channel once we come to it (we're publishing a video per day, but we have quite a lot to get through). In the meantime, our animation learning flow covers those same topics but with an improved approach: https://cgcookie.com/flow/animation-in-blender
jlampel Hi Jonathan. Did you guys deleted the whole archive for 3ds Max? If not, can you upload it to Mega or something? I could take care of download that and then upload it back to Youtube.
Alessandro Cangelosi was a great teacher and it's a shame that much of that knowledge is now lost.
Hey mmauriciopc , thanks for the reminder! I do have all the Max content in a dropbox folder, and just found the login for the YouTube channel, so I can upload everything there. There's already quite a lot on the channel already, so it'll likely take me some time to sort through what does and does not need uploading. Do you have any in mind that you'd like to see published?
jlampel Hi Jonathan. From the top of my head, these are still current:
The CavePyroclastic WallModeling Procedural RocksShading Procedural RocksExplosion over a MountainCreating ground impact with PFlowIntroduction to Thinking Particles
There was also one, that I don't remember the name, but it was something about a box of sorts dropping on the ocean. I remember it being a bit huge (like 14 or 15 lessons).
If you guys need help uploading, I'm up for it as I really like Alessandro training.
Cheers and thanks for still having the files.
jlampel Remember the name of the last one.
Working with Ocean and Fluids. I think it's a 14 video series on using ocean with particles and fluids (Realflow, etc). Nice stuff also.
Again, thanks for the help Jonathan!
mmauriciopc Excellent, I'll be sure to get those uploaded!
Thanks Jonathan. BTW, I'd also like to thank you guys for all being Jonathan. It makes remembering names WAAAYYY easier. :)
If you ever start a band, you could call it Wes and the Jonathans.
I just realized... one video per day... won't that take years? :)
jlampel are you still adding archived stuff to YouTube? If so, there was a tutorial on modeling a spider that I hope you
will be able to add.
Hey Char, I added everything I could find already. I see the example animation on YouTube so I know what you're referring to, but I haven't found the videos!
OK jlampel Thanks for looking. 😀
