Creating Welding Machine System in Maya
Creating Welding Machine System in Maya
Hi, Welcome back to Effects in Maya. In this tutorial we are going to learn how to create a welding machine system in maya. For this tutorial we are going to use particle system in maya Distance measurement tool and very little bit of expression in may. So hope you people will love this.

Growing/pruning plants upon particle collision—Maya raining dynamics
Growing/pruning plants upon particle collision—Maya raining dynamics
Doing particle dynamics in Maya is little bit complex compared to other 3d packages.Once you get the right track you can make stunning effects with particles inside Maya.Here I am showing a cool and easy way to create rain dynamics but instead of pruning water drops I am creating growing plants. I tried to avoid expressions and scripting as long as possible. The repeating animation cycle of instanced particle according to the lifespan is the base of most of dynamic effects. Topics covered Particle dynamics(creation,field and collision) Animating a growing plant with paintfx Converting the paint effects to mesh Instancing the animated mesh to particles Adjusting the different attributes of instances to get desired effects.

Rigging a Cartoon Bottle using Maya
Rigging a Cartoon Bottle using Maya
Animation can be a nightmare if you don’t have an easy to use, well-made rig to work with, and in this tutorial Donato Marotta shows us how to create just that using joints, locators, custom attributes, set driven keys, expressions and constraints in Maya!

Animating a Merry-Go-Round using Expressions in Maya 2009
Animating a Merry-Go-Round using Expressions in Maya 2009
Animating using expressions can be a big timesaver, especially when it comes to mechanical objects such as a merry-go-round! In this tutorial, Stephen Ko walks us through a simple expressions-based project, creating a simple UI with sliders to control the different parts of his model. Let’s get started!

Animating with Deformers in Maya
Animating with Deformers in Maya
Although animating with deformers is a commonly used technique in the VFX industry, a lot of people don’t know about it’s benefits. Well, after this tutorial that’’s going to change. We’ll be looking at how to animate complex expressions with deformers, along with why they can be extremely useful. Enjoy!

Making eyelid rig with driven keys and expressions using Autodesk Maya
Making eyelid rig with driven keys and expressions using Autodesk Maya
Here’s simple eye region model with eyeball. Goal for this tutorial is to make few blend shapes for 4 position of eye and drive that blend shapes automatically as eye ball rotating. Also on the end of tutorial we will learn how to make expressions and rig to control rotation of eye over translation of one nurbs circle. Follow the steps as shown below.
