Sample text

The number-one complaint of readers of books like this is a sense that either the pace is too fast or the steps are too complicated or overwhelming. That’s a tough nut to crack, to be sure, and no two readers are the same. But this book offers you the chance to run things at your own pace. The exercises and steps may seem challenging at times, but keep in mind that the more you try—even the more you fail at some attempts—the more you’ll learn about how to operate Maya. Experience is the key to learning workflows in any software program, and with experience come failure and aggravation.

A thrilling exercise shows you how to rig a locomotive model for automated animation, one of the most productive uses of Maya. Chapter 10, “Autodesk Maya Lighting,” begins by showing you how to light a 3D scene as you learn how to light the table lamp and box that you modeled and textured earlier in the book. It also shows you how to use the tools to create and edit Maya lights for illumination, shadows, and special lighting effects. The mental ray for Maya Physical Sun and Sky feature is explored in this chapter as an introduction to some sophisticated techniques for mental ray lighting.

Postproduction After all the scenes have been set up with props and characters, and everything is animated, postproduction can begin. Postproduction for a CG project is similar to postproduction for a film. This is where all of a CG film’s elements are brought together and assembled into the final form. Rendering Rendering is the process by which the computer calculates how everything in the scene should look and then displays it. As you’ll learn throughout this book, the decisions you make when creating the objects in a scene can make a big difference in how the rest of the process goes.
