In this final section of the “Maya for Beginner”┬áseries we will cover how to create interesting animated dynamic effects through simulations. You can start with this section if you like but I highly recommend taking one of the other sections first as this is a more advanced topic for a true beginner and I would recommend the order: modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, and then this course.

We will cover:

  • Bullet Physics for Rigid Body Simulations
  • Shattering Objects for Simulating
  • nHair Rope Dynamics
  • nCloth Dynamics
  • MASH Dynamics (Maya’s motion graphics tools)
  • Bifrost Dynamics (Liquid and Smoke)

This section will give you a very broad introduction to what’s possible in Maya for simulating different types of effects.

There are several mini-lessons throughout the course but we will be mainly focusing on creating a large animated scene that I will provide the character animation for and it will be up to you to create all the dynamic effects in the shot.

I look forward to seeing what you create!
