Alias|Wavefront's Maya 3D animation software is an integrated collection of tools for creating computer generated images, used in nearly every blockbuster special effects film that has been released in the last few years. The first choice for digital content creators, Maya combines animation, dynamics, modelling and rendering tools, enabling you to create digital characters and visual effects for live action films or stand-alone animation. Key Topics Using plenty of examples and illustrations to provide insights into the functioning and context of Maya, Dan Lavender explains how to: * understand the framework fundamentals of Maya; * create 3D objects; * work with models and surfaces; * animate objects; * use colours, lighting and rendering.
