Vue Learning Paths Tutorials and Training
Whether you're using Vue as a stand-alone application or if you're using it as a plugin inside of your favorite 3D program, this learning path will help you grasp the fundamentals needed to make realistic natural environments with Vue. You'll start by getting an introductory look at the interface and how you can move around efficiently in Vue. From there you'll continue by looking at creating beautiful terrains and materials before stepping learning how you can use Vue alongside other software to create beautiful matte paintings quickly and efficiently.

Q: What is Vue xStream and how is it different than my version? A. There are multiple versions of Vue and while the interface is extremely similar or even the same in some cases, there are different features in the different versions. For more information on the different versions of Vue, check out e-on software's website.
Q. Are there any tutorials that I should watch before starting this learning path? A. If you are going to be using Vue alongside or inside of another 3D application, we would highly recommend that you are familiar with that application prior to starting this learning path. That will let you focus on learning how Vue works rather than trying to learn multiple programs at the same time. Check out the Learning Paths page to see the learning paths for your favorite software.
Q: What is a learning path? How do I use them? A. Learning paths are a series of courses organized into levels for easier organization. We recommend that you start with the first course in level one and work your way through all of the courses and levels sequentially.
Q: Do I have to follow along with the tutorial? Can I work on my own project? A. The ultimate goal is to be able to transfer the techniques and tools you've learned in this learning path to your own projects. While everyone learns at a difference pace, we recommend a three-step process before trying to apply the techniques to your own projects. The first step is to watch each tutorial and take notes along the way. Secondly, watch the tutorial and follow along trying to replicate each step in the tutorial. Lastly replicate the project from the tutorial on your own trying not to watch the tutorials as much as possible. This helps to ensure that you not only are able to replicate what was taught in the tutorial but that you understand the techniques and tools that were used so you can then transfer them to your own projects.
Q: What sort of environments will I be able to create when I've completed this learning path? A. By the time you've completed this learning path, you'll have a solid understanding of how you can use Vue to create a wide range of environments and materials. As with most of the tutorials here at Pluralsight Creative, the focus of the tutorials in this learning path is not just to show you how to create the exact environments in each tutorial, but to show you how to use Vue efficiently so you can create any type of environment you may need.
Q. What if I don't use Vue? Can I follow along in my favorite 3D software? A. While we recommend using Vue to follow along with this learning path, nearly all of the core fundamentals can be ported to another piece of software if you are familiar with that software. If you find it difficult to transfer these techniques to your preferred software, we have a variety of other learning paths for other software. Check out the Learning Paths page to see the learning paths for your favorite software.
Q. Where do I go after completing this learning path? A. As artists, there are always new tips and techniques that can be learned. After completing this learning path we recommend taking a look at the Creative Development series here at Pluralsight Creative where you can learn even more great tips and tricks that are often applicable to any 3D software from experienced artists who have stepped out of production to share their tips, tricks and techniques.
