As the industry-standard 3D animation software, learning Autodesk Maya is a great skill to help you land a job in the film, music, and gaming industry. In this course, you'll learn how to create your entire animation from scratch.
What will you learn
We'll start by going over the Maya interface and understand how to work with different layouts, scenes and how to select and manipulate objects.
We'll go over different animation tools and methods, keyframing, interpolation types, and even using the graph editor.
3.Setting Up for Animation
After learning our way around Maya, we'll create a new scene and import a rig. We'll learn how to use that rig, as well as how to work with cameras.
4.Animating a Shot
After our scene is ready for animation, we'll sketch our poses with the grease pencil, block our shot and polish it until it's ready for rendering.
5.Export a Finished Shot
After finishing the animation we'll learn some basic render methods to get a nice looking final render out of Maya, and then export it using After Effects to end up with a great-looking shot, suited for a demo reel.
After the end of this course you will be able to:
You will become comfortable using Autodesk Maya to model, texture, rigging,3D animate, dynamics, light, and render
Build and design your own 3D objects
Animate your 3D objects with keyframes
