Gringo Amigo says:

It would’ve been great to watch and learn this tutorial with captions. I don’t see a point with the automatic captions, it’s really horrible. I’m hard of hearing, so it’s a bit of a struggle to understand what you’re saying. Maybe consider close captions for your videos? It would be extremely helpful. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Hmmm. My couch texture looks nothing like yours. Does that mean my computer can’t handle the super fine texture?

TheDorianTube says:

Hi Mike, thanks for this video. I’ve a question regarding the Beval. I’ve heard that if you put more than 2 off set, this will cause maya to have problems with the render. Is that true? Also..what’s that weird red selection and its purpose? (10:08). Thank you again
