At last, a software book that's as much about the art of 3D modeling and animation as it is about the specific features of the software! Exploring 3D Modeling with Maya offers a rock-solid introduction to the workings of Alias/Wavefront's industry-standard 3D modeling and animation software. But throughout the book the authors-award-winning animators and experienced educators-keep the emphasis on how designers can use Maya to meet client needs with stunning animation while exploring their own artistic impulses. Coverage includes basic modeling techniques, working with colors and textures, lighting, cinematography, and rendering.
