Tutorials Can Only Be Downloaded By Those Who Have Donated To The Site
For many years all my video tutorials and scene files have been free, a few members have kindly contributed via the donate button but sadly most downloaders have given nothing back to the site. I cannot justify keeping the site going unless it pays for itself. For example on 10 Feb 2012 i had 32GB of bandwidth used- just for that day !!! As a single parent and now an out of work carer ( the person who i was caring for has died) I have to look to the future and it seems that my love of CGI and SFX is my way forward. So I am now only allowing downloads to those who donate to the site.
i plan on making loads more tutorials as well as some indepth complete packages such as Thinking Particles, Pyrocluster, Dynamics and a full on Cinema 4D series that will be a level above the standard getting started videos that you can buy. I need to generate some funds for software and hardware to do the training justice.
I have not yet thought about pricing for the larger video series, or how they will be distributed- online or CD or both. But I plan to give a generous discount to all members of the contributors group i.e. those who have made a donation via the many donation buttons on the site.
I always wanted my tutorials to be free but I also wanted more member involvement, seems all i get these days whan i post a WIP is "Cool !! - Tut Please"- Well now it's my turn "Cool - donation please"
Now I cannot monitor the site 24x7 and untill I can set up an automated subscription system there may be a delay between your donation and myself upgrading your account, more often not I have to work out which memeber donated as most donors use different e-mail adresses on paypal and the forum, so send me a PM with the donation details as soon as you can if you think there is a problem.
