Many tutorials show you how sharp the chisel is, where to put the chisel, even what angle to put the chisel on. But they don't show you what the wood is made of and why the chisel has to be put on that angle or how to use the chisel to cut against the grain. Or that you don't need that particular chisel or what if it's not wood you're trying to cut.

The fact that there is a big red button that does something doesn't tell you much about the result or how that button plays with others. Or more importantly when not to use the button.

Every shot is different. Get to know the science and you can apply that to every shot regardless whether you have a red button or a blue one.

Learn to drive and you can pretty much drive any car. All cars have the same buttons just in different places.

There's a reason the Masters got their students to mix paints and prepare canvases for years before they were allowed to hold a brush. The brush is just the tool. The paint's what its all about. Whether you use a brush or your fingers or a feather or newtons first law.

And yes that was a comment on your FXGuide question. Have I mixed enough metaphors yet?
