Advanced Autodesk Maya 2019 Training 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.

Advanced Autodesk Maya Training Course Reviews From Our Students:

“You guys take AWESOME care of us while we’re here. We’re spoiled. 🙂” -Laurie A., DOD 

“As always, absolutely amazing… In my nearly 10 years of attending classes here, I can confidently say that ThinkB!G is among (if not the) finest training facility in the country. The level of care and attention provided by Christine (the CEO), her staff, and the instructors she hires is unmatched.” -Jimmy S., DOD

The finest class I have ever taken at ThinkB!G. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how this Advanced Maya class went. The instructor, the content covered, and enjoyment experienced during this training was unmatched. [The instructor] covered so many topics and techniques that I was interested in pursuing but until now never knew how to tackle them. It’s always exciting to learn more about interesting topics, particularly in software I use often and enjoy. I loved this class.” – James S., DOD

Likely the best class I’ve ever had, certainly the best class I’ve ever had on the subject of Advanced Maya. Best part? Not only did I have fun, but I get to turn around and use everything I learned at work tomorrow. 🙂” – Laurie B., NSA

“The 3d logo creation was awesome (I do alot of that, and found out I could’ve been doing them easier) and going thru the whole setting up an IK structure, and TRAX editor. This is the best facility I’ve ever trained at, and the training is excellent! 🙂” – Laurie A., NSA
