Default Making a cave

Hi all!!

I'm trying to make a cave in Maya for a project.

In Max, I was able to do a Cave from doing a tube and then adding a noise modifier to it.

Would I have to do something similar in Maya or is there another way I could go about it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Many thanks,

Regs,

Keith

Hmmm... Maya doesn't have a noise modifiyer, but i'm sure if you googled Maya MEL noise then something would come up

in maya, if there's not already a tool out there, its sooo easy to make one in MEL

hope that helps
Matt

just create a polygon cylinder and increase the high division , say 10
and select the faces but not the faces at the both side , and do extrude ( uncheck use selected curve for extrusion) and but 1 in the random , applay , and you will get cave.
create camera into the sphere.

hope that will help you
