Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
If you're a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or you've purchased this training on a disk, then you'll have access to the exercise files to accompany in this training. Here's how these are organized. In each Chapter, you'll find the corresponding projects that go with that chapter. So, if you're watching Chapter 06, you'll find the projects that go along with Chapter 06. Now, only the projects are in these chapter files. All of the media is located in these separate folders inside of the Media folder. Now, if you are a monthly or annual subscriber to the lynda.com Online Training Library, then you won't have access to these files, which is a kind of a bummer actually, because if you go into the 3D Files in the Media folder, there's a bunch of really cool 3D models, such as the spaceships and things like that, that are in the public domain, and are free to use for commercial projects, or personal projects, or whatever you want.
So, there's that, and let's go ahead and jump into the training.
