Using maya for video effects?
I am an amateur video editor, but i am getting a bit board with lame transitions and stuff.
Basically I want to start adding my own effects to video and I'm wondering if I can do this in maya.
For Example: I saw a recent music video where rose pebbles were raining from the sky (I'm sorry i can't remeber what video it was or who the artist was), but it looked really good.
I would presume this kind of thing would be rendered in a 3D program and then super imposed somehow?
Can you tell me if this kind of thing can be done in maya and possibly point me to some tutorials which are along these lines. If you think Maya is not the right application for this type of thing, then do you know what might be.
Thanks in advance for your valued assistance!
