Introduction to Maya - Rendering in Arnold
This course will look at the fundamentals of rendering in Arnold. We'll go through the different light types available, cameras, shaders, Arnold's render settings and finally how to split an image into render passes (AOV's), before we then reassemble it i

First Maya Project, First Post

Hi, after completing an introductory tutorial for maya featuring a podracer, I decided to try and make one myself. So far I have modelled and textured the engines and I'm trying to set up jetstream with fluids.
Any tips on teaching myself maya? I'm really interested in becoming an animator. How long will it take me get good on my own?

The only I can offer is to stick with it and don't bite off more than you can chew or you'll burn yourself out. How long it takes to get good at it depends on time and dedication.

Hey,
Just a thought, but if you want to be an animator I'd just start getting into it. Looks like you have a basic understanding of modelling and texturing. Why bother learning fluids or anything else. Just get animating! user added image

Thanks, I guess I just thought it would look a bit better with some simple jetsream when I do animate it. I won't waste too much time on that though.
