Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Free Intro to Maya course

I've finished teaching a course at the University of Toronto:

An Intro to Maya for Biomedical Animation

Class recordings are all available for free on YouTube. The course starts from scratch, opening Maya for the first time, to topics such as:
  • Organic modeling
  • Ptex painting
  • Mudbox sculpting
  • Procedural shading networks
  • Linear workflow
  • Camera animation
  • After Effects compositing
  • and more...

I've divided recorded videos into "concepts" which cover the main ideas and techniques involved, and "tutorials" which go step by step through a small project. The topics have a science/medicine focus, but really the techniques can be applied to any subject matter.

The course can be followed sequentially if you're new to Maya, or browse individual topics as you like.

Over 17 hours of training in total. Another way of looking at it is a crash course in Maya can be completed in a single week for free. But don't forget to come back and invest in the greatly superior training material here on SimplyMaya user added image.

Some selected videos:

I hope it is useful for some.
