New Training: Phoenix FD Fire FX

Take The Shortcut to Setting Anything in 3D on Fire

This course should cost way's amazing. - Daniel Rivas, enrolled student

What makes our VFX Training Different?

Our courses follow the same style of teaching you’re used to from my tutorials. Beginner-friendly, to-the-point, with a tangible result at the end of each lesson. You guys know I’m ruthless about cutting these lessons down as much as I can, and giving you just the information you need, not more & not less. There’s no endless over-explaining and revolving around the same topic 47 times before moving forward. My goal is NOT to be able to say that this training is hundreds of hours long. My god, I sure don’t have hundreds of hours (although it sounds cool, but think about it…)

You know the quote “I’m sorry that the letter is long, but I didn’t have time to write a short one” (I may have butchered that) but the point is: It’s EASY to turn on the mic and record for hours and hours. It’s HARD to reduce something to the main pillars, and teach it in a concise way. I’m so tired of courses that you watch for 4 hours and feel like you still don’t know how to do anything. I keep the lessons short. We set it up and move forward. It’s the VFX training I wanted and couldn’t find. – Jesse

Phoenix FD Water FX with Splash & Foam

“Bought the course. It’s amazing. Soooo good and easy to understand and everything so far is really well explained. It’s amazing how fast this course brings you up to speed. I also love that you talk about hardware and give an honest and realistic assessment of what’s needed. Completely awesome. Probably the best Black Friday investment in myself that I’ve made this year.” – Paul Del Vecchio, enrolled student

What Our Students Are Saying

When I stumbled upon RedefineFX it was like a dream come true. I could start implementing what I learned in my work immediately and was able to wow my friends and take client work to that next level like I wanted to.

Genesis Williams3D Artist

I randomly came across Jesse’s tutorials and immediately knew I could do the work based on what he was showing. His straight to the point/relevant explanations are easy to follow. The client was amazed by the simulations and has led to more projects and better portfolio material. Thanks Jesse!

Jimm WagnerVFX Artist

Short, precise, and most importantly inspiring. Jesse's tutorials helped me understand how to setup simulations in an organized way but also how to combine them with particle textures to bring my work to the next level.
