About

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. Access to private posts.
  2. Secret screenshots and updates.
  3. Special discord role access on the CGMatter server.
What does this mean? Good question! Well [1] includes occasional polls, some random files (for example sometimes I pay people on Fiverr to remix my tutorial raps), and most importantly the Patreon Newsletter (this is a unlisted video I record addressing future updates on the channel etc, basically a video-format briefing of what's going on)! Next, [2] keeps you in the loop for what video is coming next. If you've stuck around for a while you know that my uploads have historically been fairly unpredictable and kinda-random, well... no more! Finally [3] gives you the CGPatreon role on my discord server. You can use this to access the patreon-only channels where I frequent a lot of the time (feel free to ask questions or anything 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. Access to private posts.
  2. Secret screenshots and updates.
  3. Special discord role access on the CGMatter server.
  4. Tutorial files (where relevant).
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 (along with previous benefits) 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. Access to private posts.
  2. Secret screenshots and updates.
  3. Special discord role access on the CGMatter server.
  4. Tutorial files (where relevant).
  5. Exclusive video courses. 
You heard me! No need to buy courses individually, 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 aren't just extra tutorials - they're full projects, broken into parts, 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 5 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) ;)
