The Advanced Techniques tutorials are designed for intermediate and advanced users and concentrate on specific, complex topics and techniques in Autodesk® Maya® software.
Tutorial topics include:
- Maya nParticles
The Maya nParticles advanced techniques tutorial demonstrates the use of three types of nParticle systems: an nParticle output mesh, a 3D fluid with container, and an external gravity field.
- Maya nCloth
The Maya nCloth advanced techniques tutorial teaches a workflow to simulate high-resolution clothing using nCloth. In the tutorial, lower-resolution versions of a high-resolution mesh are converted to nCloth and manipulated to quickly create animated behaviors unique to simulated cloth.
- Maya Muscle
The Maya Muscle advanced techniques tutorials illustrate how to use the Maya Muscle skin deformer for your own characters and projects. The Muscle Builder example offers a basic overview of Maya Muscle features as applied to cMuscleSpline-based muscles. In addition, you’ll learn the basic workflow and features of the Maya Muscle Creator in several lessons.
View the tutorial workflows in HTML or PDF (depending on the version), and download the corresponding scene files and lesson data.
Note: In Maya 2013 and 2014, all of the Advanced Techniques tutorials are presented in a single HTML system. Similarly, the lesson data is found within the same file.
