Frequently Asked Questions

Head over to the CAMPUS (located on the main menu under “About” / “Account” or your account section) and find your course under “My Courses”. Click on the thumbnail and you will be directed to the tutorial page for this course.

Our workshops and courses are prerecorded and therefore not live. This makes it perfect for the individual learner so you can watch at your own pace and decide when and where to watch.

We offer customer support and aim to respond as quick as possible to every customer. We understand that the world of CGI can be challenging at times and we went through the same process ourselves. We’re happy to answer any tutorial related questions you may have!

Also, at the CAMPUS you can connect to other Artists and even talk to our instructors or participate in group conversations.

Please contact support [at] pixelfront.net with any questions you may have. Or use our contact form. We aim to respond as soon as possible.

The main difference between courses and workshops is their duration. Workshops are one time tutorials ranging from minutes up to maybe 10 hours the most.

Courses are longer and spread across multiple weeks. Ranging from minutes up to maybe 5 hours per week. The aim of a course is to go through an entire project from start to finish and cover a wide range of information. These are most suited for those wanting to advance their skills even further.
