eLearning, Game Development | Level: Intermediate
If you are already familiar with Maya's interface and basic modeling tools, and are interested in diving deeper into 3D modeling workflow, this is a great course for you. In this class, you will be creating a fairly detailed 3D prop, and exploring many of Maya's more advanced modeling tools. You will begin by working with curve and surface creation tools, which can offer some excellent advantages over polygon tools for many hard surface modeling challenges. Next, you will convert all of our surfaces to geometry that is compatible with game engines, and make some additional modifications using a few of Maya's intermediate polygon and deformer tools. Then, you will take advantage of Maya's advanced duplication tools in order to precisely position and distribute shapes that are repeated multiple times within our prop. And even explore Maya's basic animation toolset to add some movement to our finished asset. By the time you finish this course, you will have a solid understanding of Maya's hard surface modeling features, and will be able to use these tools to develop your own game assets.
