We bring you this Foundry Katana tutorial, as learning a new tool can often be challenging. At the beginning of the learning journey, it’s hard to know which features are important or how you can improve your workflow. Alternatively, you might have previously used the tools in a studio environment and find yourself in a similar position as I was – struggling to build my own projects from scratch. It’s easy to overlook the basics when you’re eager to get started quickly. To see a major project using Katana, check out Creative Bloq's feature on the Lion King.

In this guide, we will go through some of the core concepts that can help you get started on your learning journey with Katana, Foundry’s look development and lighting tool.
