This is an introductory tutorial about some basic concept of Maya. We are splitting these concepts into different parts and this one is second part where we shall learn about viewport, transform and hotkey. When the object is opened in Maya, there we are in prospective view. We can convert the viewport into four viewports called orthographic viewport. There is button located on the left side of viewport, just click this button and the viewport split into four parts. Each part of viewport shows different point of view about given object.
Here you are learning about some basic concept of Maya like Maya preference, Maya interface and Maya object creation. After this tutorial you will use the Maya in better way. This is part 1 of Maya basic and you will find out further parts in next steps. Maya is the Hindu goddess illusion and its 3d graphics are also similar about such features. Maya provides you such platform where you latterly bring your dream to life. Because of Maya complexity, it has many steep learning curves.
The following tutorial is describing about how to work for interior design using Maya 2012. The interior design mostly contains complex kind of modeling with rendered image. There are plenty of things made in this scene. So don’t think so that this scene is created in just one attempt. It required various parts to create single think one by one method. First of all, keep one thing in mind that mostly polygonal primitives are used for interior designing. So same here, we take polygonal cube at first and adjust its setting by placing different attribute values.
Here you are learning about polygon modeling for architectural model in Maya. Polygon modeling is used at larger scale in Maya modeling. If you want to learn polygonal modeling, then download model from this site and use it as reference image. Here you are guided with step by step method so that you could create model yourself. Suppose we want to create a 3D model of room, so choose polygonal cube and scale it uniformly to make it larger.
In this video tutorial, you are learning about simple modeling of wine bottle. This is second part of the series where we are working at secondary level. The model is nearly complete and some more steps are being performed on it. The model is prepared with the help of reference image and some basic steps are being used here. So keep these steps in mind and don’t forget to apply them during the whole process. We had made a bowl in our previous part and here we shall reshape it like a bottle by placing appropriate values for their attribute.
In this tutorial you will learn about rendering of wireframe in Maya using mental ray. The wireframe is just like basic structure of any model. When the model is created, we can convert it into wire frame mode by pressing 4 from key board and return to shaded mode by 5. This is basic command of Maya model. Here we are taking rough image to demonstrate this concept. Go to create menu and choose polygon primitive and then Helix. This is supposed object for our model which lies at the middle of the grid.
Similarly do the same for each and every step of your scene individually. Take a test rendering and you will see that scene is really awesome but still it doesn’t have shadow. One thing that I forgot to mention here is that save this scene at that time.
In this video tutorial we’ll learn about how to render wireframe in Maya using mental ray. To start our project, just change the wireframe mode into surface shade. Now it is required to change surface shader attribute. There are various options offering us to use them for modification of our model.First of all choose texture as Ambient occulusion,
In this tutorial we are going to show you about how to cut from side to side polygon faces in Maya. Mostly NURBs deals with Faces but this specific part is different from custom situation. According to the video, there are different objects on which we shall apply face modification [...]
In this free video tutorial you will learn modeling side panels of NRUBS car model such as doors, pillars, screens etc. After this tutorial you will be able to model a NRUBS car of your own in Maya. In this text and image tutorial you will learn Modeling side panels [...]
