Unless otherwise stated, all videos are live recordings of a past CGschool class. They contain all of the same curriculum taught as part of the live and online classes, and include class files. Videos are screencasts of the instructor’s screen as well as their voice and that of the online and in-class students.  As the videos are live class recordings they contain the same unscripted events from the class, including questions from students etc.  Audio quality is comparable to a live online webcast.  Videos are broken down into one file per day and most contain approx. 9 hours of instruction each day.

Video Delivery

All videos are distributed via a download link (30 day download link limit) in a proprietary CGschool video format using the CGschool video player. Each file is approx. 800MB-1.2GB in size.  Once you download your video links and open the video for the first time in the CGschool video player, you will be asked to authenticate yourself so that a license can be installed on your computer. We provide licenses for up to 3 seperate computers with 5 installations per computer*.  At this time the player will only run on Windows operating systems in a non-virtualized environment.  For full system requirements can be found here. Please note that after your order has been received it will take 24 hours on business days before you receive your download links.
