I get messages on Youtube fairly often asking me how I make machinima. Unfortunately, there’s no clear and easy tutorials I can link them to. Google brings up a variety of outdated guides, dead links, and unanswered questions.
There’s a number of tutorials on Youtube for machinima production, and while the author has good intentions to share their knowledge, most are pretty poorly made. It’s often someone mumbling to themselves, making mistakes, and using terms or shortcuts a newbie wouldn’t understand.
My goal is to make a series of tutorials to get people working ASAP. Short and to the point. From basic video editing, to more advanced tutorials covering the Unreal and Source engines. I’ve learned a lot through the help of others, and now it’s my turn to pass it on.
