  • Course details

    Learn to create high-quality 3D models and animations in Maya 2018. This course covers the core Maya skills—modeling, texturing, rendering, and animation—within a real-world, project-based workflow. The techniques you'll learn here translate equally well to film, motion graphics, game design, and animation.

    First explore the basics of the Maya interface, including selecting and manipulating objects, organizing scenes, and customizing the interface. Next, learn about polygonal modeling, creating and refining meshes, sculpting, and working with NURBS surfaces. Once you understand modeling, discover how to create and apply materials—adding color, texture, and reflectivity to your creations. Then integrate cameras, lighting, and effects into the rendering process, and leverage the new Arnold for Maya renderer. Last but not least, instructor George Maestri show how to add movement and life to your work with Maya's animation tools.

We have basically three airplanes. And two of them, the red and blue airplane are animating, and the green one has no animation on it. So we're going to create clips from the red and blue airplane and apply it to the green one. Now I'm going to go ahead into my channel box and turn off that green plane layer, just to make things a little bit more clear. And then we're going to go ahead and open our time editor. Now when we first open our time editor and there's no clips in the scene, you will get these three icons here. One allows you to import content from external files such as motion capture files. The second one allows you to add selected content from the scene. So if I were to say select the red airplane I could hit plus and that would create an animation clip. Or I can drag and drop files into my…
