Course programme

Autodesk Maya 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and visual effects software offers artists an end-to-end creative workflow. Autodesk Maya software is the first release to unify the Autodesk Maya Complete 2009 and Autodesk Maya Unlimited 2009 feature sets, advanced matchmoving capabilities, and high dynamic range compositing into a single affordable package. Also included for a complete CG workflow are 5 additional mental ray for Maya batch rendering nodes and the Autodesk Backburner network render queue manager.

Salient Features

~ Autodesk Maya 2009 software delivers a significantly streamlined poly modeling workflow
~ A powerful new animation layering paradigm in Maya 2009 built on technology from Autodesk MotionBuilder software, gives you more flexibility as you non-destructively create and edit animation
~ Maya 2009 includes tools developed specifically for the creation of stereoscopic content. In this video we'll introduce you to the in-viewport stereoscopic viewer and the default stereo camera rig
~ This new Maya Unlimited toolset gives you a precise, efficient workflow for simulating a wide range of complex effects including liquids, clouds, smoke, spray and dust
~ Maya 2009 provides new and enhanced tools for both the high-level manipulation and component-level editing of polygon models
