In this series of 3 videos I show how to procedurally build and texture a mountain in Autodesk Maya, using the texture deformer and simple node networks.
These two videos show the basics of using the 3D paint tool in Maya, and how to then refine the result in Adobe Photoshop. The model used was created by Naeem Green ’22 A rather old but still useful tutorial can be found on 3dtutorialzone.com
How to use the Andy Rig.
The basic features of the Andy Rig are explained in a video.:
Morphing has gotten a lot easier in Maya with the Shape Editor.
This technique, also know as Shape Animation / Shape Blending, enable you to deform an object from one shape to another. The principle is simple: you have a base shape (the un-deformed state) and a target shape. By determining a percentage, for instance by pulling on a slider, you can by smoothly interpolate between the two shapes: the points of the object will move from the positions they are in for the base shape, to […]
The Quad Draw tool in Maya is great for retopologizing a model. You basically draw a new mesh on top of the (probably way too high density scanned) mesh, Here is a video on the basics. To start drawing quads on top of an existing mesh Select the surface you want to re-topo (draw on) Make live (right click – make live, or magnet icon [plain magnet]) You can see which surface is live on […]
The following demo is showing the basics of poly-modeling in Maya 2015 on a Mac. Aimed at beginning modelers so I explain a number of basic Maya functions along the way. Hence the length.
This continues where the Hermit Tutorial left off. Refining the model using the Multi Cut tool, adding geometry using Extrude.
