Default Environmental Tutorials

Hey Guys


Wondering if any of you guys out there know of any good Environmental tutorials. For example making really realistic snow and mountain regions or Storm and rain environments etc.


Thanks Again

i can point you out to one... someone else can probably point you out to more (i haven't really looked for such things)

go to the area (you can find a link in the maya help menu, or just google 'the area' and it should be the first link... area autodesk)

sign up, and in tutorials and tips search for 'nature', you'll get one tutorial in maya... its an outdoors nature scene
