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.

First Animation EVER!

Hi all,

Thought I would share with you an animation I just finished. Its from a fundementals course where you have to animate a ball moving on a stage. I had so much fun, and learned so much, I kinda went overboard by creating an entire set around the ball!

Nice little animation man!

Some of the camera movements look a little jerkey on the transitions but other than that it looks good.

I like the set that you made up, it really adds to the atmosphere.

Thanks for the C&C as for the jerkyness that probably came from when I converted it to a flash movie so I could keep the sound. Here is the AVI no sound but you can see the flow without the jerkyness.

The scene is fantastic! I think you should do something else with that scene with something that fits it better. Do some characters to have a band concert or something. Good work!


Expect to excell...
