Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Books detailing, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] So, now that we have our books blocked in,…what I want to do is show you how to first…be able to make multiple books from this basic shape…of different sizes, of different thicknesses,…of different depths, and doing it without the scaling tool.…If we use the scaling tool on this particular book,…it's actually going to deform incorrectly.…So, if I hit the R key…and I start scaling this to be wider,…what happens is the book cover thickness…is actually going to start to get thicker,…and you'll notice that on the spine,…it's actually getting a little bit thinner.…
And, the same thing is if we start squishing…this book down, or trying to make this longer,…we're going to actually deform that…in a way that we don't want.…If we take a look at the reference of these books,…all of these book covers are essentially the same thickness.…The books themselves are not,…due to how many pages are inside of 'em,…but that thickness itself with the cardboard…that's inside is almost always the same.…So, how can we deform this particular book…
