Maya Secrets of the Pros, 9780782143454 (0782143458), Sybex, 2005
Featuring completely original material from a new team of Maya know-it-alls, this second edition of an award-winning book is sure to inform and inspire even the most seasoned Maya user. In this distinctive Maya Press title, a cadre of professionals led by two acclaimed Maya pros, reveal the precious secrets they’ve learned using Maya on high-profile CG projects such as The Matrix, Shrek 2, and X-Men.

In nine unique and compelling chapters, you’ll get detailed and sophisticated instruction on how to:
  • Enhance fluidity and realism by generating complex motion with Maya Cloth
  • Apply non-photorealistic rendering styles that mimic the look of comic books and impressionist paintings
  • Emulate real-world camera motion, from dolly-and-pan movement to varying levels of camera shake
  • Produce natural lighting effects using global illumination and image based lighting
  • Ensure smooth and accurate transfer of character data from modeling to rigging to animation to lighting
  • Control IK chains, deformers, and surfaces with Maya Hair's dynamic curves
  • Use dynamics effectively to create flexible objects and add secondary effects to enhance your animation
  • Use Maya’s built-in noise function to produce powerful effects similar to those used in “The Matrix” trilogy
  • Create a human face from a conceptual sketch using subdivision surfaces
