OSL Shader Writing Course: Lesson #1

Lesson #1 of my OSL Shader Writing course is now up on the Autodesk learning channel. This is a bit of an experiment, and I hope you will enjoy it.

I try to balance making these informative with not spending a TON of time actually doing them. Ideally, recording one shouldn't take days, but just some planning of the slides, and then - ideally - a one-take recording going through it.

Please take it for what it is :)
