About CGMatter

SO... YOU HAVE A PATREON?Yes, yes I do, and welcome! This is the official CGMatter/Default Cube Patreon page. Let me tell you everything there is to know (after showing you some of my 'phases')!


WHY PATREON?
In short, making Blender tutorials on YouTube is great. You get to add to the overall knowledge base, help out beginners, challenge experts, and... all of this for free (excluding the 5 seconds spent watching YouTube ads)! That being said, doing this full-time is NOT sustainable (even with 2 channels). Especially given the amount of time I spend scripting, narrating, recording, and editing! I can spend days working on a single 2-minute video! Beyond just the service/equipment costs (website hosting, decent microphone, data hosting costs) the time investment is MASSIVE.
So here we are! But what can you expect from me if you decide to donate?


THE TIERS
Oh yes, this onion has layers! When deciding on what tiers/benefits I wanted to include I ran into a bit of a roadblock. Did people want exclusive tutorials? Or was it assets? Tutorial files? Behind the scenes? OnlyFans (not gonna happen)? Just to donate with nothing in return?
What I decided on is providing all of these (minus OnlyFans) in a tier-based system. It's a bit complicated so let me explain:


TIER 1 - Default Cube (1$)
Some good stuff right out of the gate! For 1$ a month you get:
  1. EARLY ACCESS TO TUTORIALS!
Yes! My tutorials are usually up for a minimum of a day before going live (sometimes a full week)! Watch the tutorials before anyone else!
Not bad for 1$ ;)


TIER 2 - You've Been You (5$)
And now we're starting to build up... all benefits from before with some extra! For 5$ a month you get:
  1. EARLY ACCESS TO TUTORIALS!
  2. PROJECT FILES!
That's right, who needs tutorials when you have tutorial files XD
These aren't just the occasional .blend but also the base footage I use, image sequences, tiny asset packs, and 3D models! There was even a video where I released a bunch of 360 spherical footage to play around with. Remember, your tier-2 status not only gives you tutorial files, but all the tutorial files I've posted! No need to buy them one-by-one on Gumroad.


TIER 3 - CGMastermind (15$)
In my (master) mind this is where the super-high value comes in! For 15$ a month we've got:
  1. EARLY ACCESS TO TUTORIALS!
  2. PROJECT FILES!
  3. EXCLUSIVE TUTORIALS!
You heard me! Your monthly subscription gives you access to not one, but ALL exclusive video courses I've made (note that I'd price each course at 15$ already). These are full projects, explained nice and slowly ;)


TIER 4 -  Thank You! (20$)
Does 3 = 4? Nope. But Tier 3 = Tier 4! This is just for anyone who wants to donate extra (and for the people who have so far, thank you)! To be clear: this tier also gives you all the benefits!

IN CONCLUSION
Thank you for reading my whole spiel. Your consideration alone is honoring enough and for those of you who become Patrons THANK YOU for making a free 3D for everyone else (while you reap some benefits) ;)
