Office Hours - Kent's Office - Tuesday, May 23rd, 1 pm (US Eastern Time)

Kent Trammell

Greetings Citizen Members! I will be opening my office via Discord on Tuesday, May 23rd, at 1 pm US Eastern Time. That translates to:

  • 10am Los Angeles time
  • 6pm London time
  • 9pm Dubai time
  • 3am Sydney time (ouch)

It's hard to pick a time that works for everyone, but I'll also record the session for anyone that can't make it live.

Have a question for me?

Ask me anything you'd like related to Blender, CG Cookie, my courses, troubleshooting a project issue, etc! If your question involves a project you're working on, please provide a download link so I can take a closer look.

The best way to do this is by uploading your .blend to Dropbox, Google Drive, Mega, or equivalent file hosting service then copy + paste the share link here. If your project involves image textures please pack your .blend before saving and uploading by going to File > External Data > Automatically pack resources:


NOTE: Active CG Cookie members get first priority, but we're happy to help out anyone. For more information about Office Hours, check out Amber's recent blog post.

    Hello Kent,

    could you please help me resolve this issue:

    Waiting for your answer :)

  • Kent Trammell replied

    AutopsyGuy I've spent some significant time troubleshooting your .blend and can't figure out a good solution. The worst part about the exploding verts bug is that the high polycounts make every step excruciatingly slow.

    I will give it another attempt for office hours but I can't make any promises 🤞

  • Artur (AutopsyGuy) replied

    @theluthier Really apperciate your efforts. I've spent last few weekends trying to fix the issue myself.
    As you can see in the first picture I desperately tried to fix the mesh by deleting the area where the vertecies got "totally lost" and ultimately connected them together to get a clean shape again. 


    Yeah, it felt like cleaning the floor with a toothbrush.. 


    ...but it looks fine now. Couldn't find an more elegant solution. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Now the worst part is that I have to do the retopology all over again.

    Anyway can't wait for the office hours session tomorrow. Wish you the best and sorry for all the trouble.

    • very impressive!

    Hi kent im having trouble knowing what i could change to my sculpt to take it to that next level of greatness.

    Any suggestions are much appreciated 

    I will be unable to make it to the office hours so if you can record it would be great :)
