Get started learning dymamics in Maya with two tutorial projects covering rigid body dynamics, keyframe animation and fluid simulations. We also look at lighting and rendering in Mental Ray with image based lighting, final gather, global illumination and caustics. All scene files and assets are included.

In this training kit we create a six second animation of golden rings bouncing out of a falling wineglass which we shade, light and render in mental ray. It's a workflow tutorial which will give you enough information to start designing your own dynamic simulations and experiment with Maya's more advanced lighting...[Continue Reading]
In this training kit we take you through Maya's fluid dynamics system, topics covered here are 2D and 3D fluid containers, shading fluids, nparticle integration with fluids and fluid sculpting. By the time you're finished with this tutorial you will have some insight into how Maya fluids work and how you can use nparticles [Continue Reading]
