The purpose of this course is to provide students with the essential understanding of Maya and AnimBot that will allow them to further their studies in animating in Maya.
How does this class work?
The class will be meeting twice a week for about an hour where the students and the teacher will go over Maya tools and functionality together. Each class will be a live demo workshop that the students can follow along and ask questions via the chat.
What will students learn?
This course will be divided into two parts:
The goal of Part 01 of this workshop is to provide students with the working knowledge of Maya they’ll need in order to animate. It’s important to note though that these are just some of the foundations of Maya, particularly those most useful to professional animators.
The goal of Part 02 portion of the workshop is to provide students with a foundational understanding of AnimBot that will enable them to delve further into the tools on their own. We will be covering the tools that are most frequently used by animators and other tools that will give you a deeper understanding of the rest of AnimBot’s flexibility and utility.
