Learning on CGCircuit #
Learning on CGCircuit is easy. Once you purchase a tutorial, you have the ability to watch it as many times as you like, for as long as your CGCircuit login is active.
After you purchase a tutorial, it is available under the “MY COURSES” tab. If the tutorial has any accompanying example files, you will have access to any example files once you purchase. Example files will be found on the tutorial detail page.
To protect the hard work your peers and colleagues have put into creating their tutorials, videos cannot be downloaded. This is to prevent piracy. Not that we think you would do such a thing, it’s more for that other guy.

Managing your Content #
As you learn a new topic, you can categorize every tutorial the way that works best for you. For example is a tutorial is very helpful for you to learn about “How to use Python in Houdini” because the tutorial has a section of it that was very helpful for you to learn that topic, you can create a “Python in Houdini” subject and add that tutorial to it. If the same tutorial has some good information that helps you learn the basics of Houdini (for example), you can create another subject “Getting started with Houdini” and add the same tutorial to is.
Yes, you can add the same tutorial to as many subjects as you’d like.
As you watch a video in our player, and you find part of the video especially helpful for you, you can bookmark that specific part of the video with a Note. A Note allows you not only to bookmark a specific time, but also to specify the reason why that part of the video is so helpful, or maybe you can write down an idea you want to remember later.
The more Notes you save, the more information you leave for your “future self” to use as reminders or refreshers for on what you learned.
