Rendering can be the rewarding final step at the end of a long 3D modeling process. Or it can be a frustrating chore. It all comes down to the right settings. Now, with Maya 2016 Extension 2, animators have access to the Render Setup dialog, which provides everything you need to manage multiple renders within a single window. This targeted training course explores Maya's new Render Setup dialog and Light Editor. Install the extensions and get started setting up render layers and creating collections: groups of objects that you want to render on each layer. Author George Maestri helps you adjust the shading, materials, and lighting of objects in your scene and render the final results using this new tool.
