Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

paths and dynamics

hey all - looking to run some dynamics on particles. each particle is constrained to a nurb curve. there is a network of these curves. i am looking to control each particles path constraint parametrically through a data sheet.

looking for any thoughts here - thx

Im not sure if this will help but i think that the maya website has a tutorial on making the particles follow a path to do some wierd stuff, sorry i dont have the link. it was one of the free ones, and you have to sign up to get it.

Do what you like, like what you do.

you could always encase your particle path with an object (even an extrude that is made up of that path) and 'make collide' so they'd just bounce around inside the object.

Accept no substitutions.

I have the geometry modelled so I'll give that a try - thanks
