Course Description: In this Advanced Maya Training Class we will review the basics covered in Intro to Maya and dive further into hard surface modeling, technical modeling, organic modeling, and set modeling.  You will learn to use light utilities to build advanced indoor/outdoor lighting rigs, and shaders with advanced texture networks to achieve the best possible results. We will also teach advanced rendering pipelines utilizing  Maya Software rendering and the Arnold render engine using Render Layers, Batch Rendering and export the frames to Adobe Photoshop or After Effects to put the final touches on our still and animated shots. Advanced animation workflows and dynamic simulations will also be covered to create the most believable and realistic animation possible. The advanced class is also a great way to learn about all the new Features now bundled with Autodesk Maya like: the extended MASH toolset, 3D Type, Viewport 2.0 with Arnold, and the improved Motion Graphics Toolset used to create complex procedural effects. Note: This Autodesk Maya 2019 training course is now the standard version for Maya 2018 training and all other previous versions of Maya.
