Course Description

This Maya training video Infinite Skills introduces you to the 3D modelling and animation program, Maya. Created by AutoDesk (well known for their CAD software), and used by heavyweights such as Industrial Light and Magic, Electronic Arts and more, Maya is a complete and powerful 3D program.


Starting with the basics, this course takes you through the interface of Maya. As this tutorial on Maya 2012 continues, you will learn how to model using NURBS and Polygons. You will learn about rendering, lighting, and texturing your objects. Lee also shows you how to animate your 3D models. Bump mapping, Raytracing, using Mental Ray, and projecting 2D maps are just a few of the other subjects covered.

By the completion of this computer based training course, you will be fully versed in the basic tools and capabilities of Maya, and ready to create, animate and render your own 3D models! Working files are included to allow you to work alongside the author using the very same projects as in the training video.
