I was lucky enough to get to go to one of the VFX Roundtables at GDC this year and get my grubby hands on the week’s notes, along with the goldmine of resources in them. ImbueFX in particular has a lot of great beginner resources, free mini-tutorials in addition to the giant non-free (but totally worth it, if you’re looking to drop some cash) ones, and plenty of reference and inspiration, in addition to all sorts of goodies for more advanced VFX folks. Bill Kladis’s tutorials are very UDK-centric, but there are a lot of links in the resource section to 2D effect resources as well.
