Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Maya basics, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…It's time to say goodbye to photoshop and head into Maya territory.…I'll be working in Maya 2013 but if you have an…older or newer version of Maya, it won't make any difference.…What we'll be doing in this tutorial can be done in almost any version of Maya.…Although there may be some minor differences in the interface…if you're not working in Maya 2013 like I am.…If you are a complete Maya newbie, you should take a moment to…watch the training movies that come up in Maya when you open it.…
I have them turned off, and if they don't come up…for you, just go up to help and choose learning movies.…There are seven of them and they're each a couple of minutes long.…It'll be well worth your time to watch…them to get a basic overview of the program.…Since you are already a lynda.com member, you could also…avail yourself of George Maestri's fine Maya 2011 Essentials Training course.…George has Maya training on a later version of Maya also,…but I like this 2011 course because it's shorter and more concise.…
Just the essentials.…
