I have a question, how can I contact you guys?
Can I have a refund?

Sure. Blender Market has a 30 day money back guarantee. Just shoot an email to [email protected] and ask for a refund. No questions asked.

Where can I get an invoice/receipt?

Login to your BlenderMarket account and go into Profile> My Account> Order History. There you’ll find the Receipt (PDF) button.

What is the license of the .blend files? Can I use it in my own projects?

The .blend files contained in the Space VFX course are released under Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution. Feel free to use them in your projects. All textures are licensed under Creative Commons 0. Use them however you like, without crediting us. 

What kind of computer do I need to recreate the effects described in the course?

A decent videocard is recommended, but not required. Aidy did a great job optimizing the techniques with a broad range of hardware in mind (spoilert alert: we were cheating!). In other words, you can run it on a potato.

One exception: the Quasar chapter. It requires volume shaders, so for this one a stronger videocard is needed. 

I’m using Unreal Engine (Unity, Godot, Maya, Cinema 4d). Will I benefit from watching these tutorials?

We use Blender throughout the course, so naturally you’ll learn how to make spacey stuff in Blender. So if you plan to apply the knowledge in the other software (say, Maya), this will require additional effort on your side. 

I just started learning Blender, will I be able to follow through Space VFX?

This course is aimed at the intermediate skilled users, so we would recommend to have some basic understanding of Blender before embarking on this space journey. The tempo is very fast. Though, we did our best to make it accessible. If you are up to the challenge, give it a shot.

Will I need any other software, besides Blender?

Gimp, Krita, free and open source painting programs.

What version of Blender do I need?
Where are the resources (.blend files, textures)?

Download the Resources.zip archive and extract it. There you will find .blend files, textures, HDR environments and other stuff.

Some videos from Space VFX have no sound, what’s going on?

If that’s the case, download free VLC player.
