This unique Maya course includes over 9 hours of video and 60 pages of written step-by-step printable instruction PDFs, one for each of the 35 videos, a bonus my students have always valued.
"Making Sense of Maya" is designed to do just that. This uniquely organized Maya course is designed to be done in the order listed, building skills in an intuitive and comfortable progression through the Autodesk Maya program.
More than an introduction, "Making Sense of Maya" not only teaches skills to the beginner, it also demonstrates workflows with several projects throughout the course, culminating in a final project that combines assets from previous projects into a fully animated, custom scene.
This course will give you a solid foundation in Maya and the understanding needed to approach and create your own projects leading you down the path to either a fulfilling hobby or on your way to a new career!
