Non-exhaustive list of interesting videos...

Hello;

This little thread to share videos related to graphics, basics of image generation, and cgi (lots of youtube links…sorry).
Can be useful or just nice.

I think most of you have already (high level) knowledge or does not need it because it's too basic, or maybe the links have already been shared... who knows.
Some videos helped me to understand concepts.
Also feel free to add links if you want or if you have books to recommend, why not!!!!

Maybe some channels are those of members of this forum!

These are just links, the rights belong to their respective creators. Thanks for them.
