45+ Incredible Maya Tutorials Around Autodesk Maya, or simply Maya, is a high-end 3D computer graphics and 3D modeling software package originally developed by Alias Systems Corporation, but now owned by Autodesk as part of the Media and Entertainment division. Maya is a powerful, 3-D modeling, texturing, and rendering application, with all of the tools needed to do nearly every type of animation imaginable, from simulations of real-world physics to character animation with a wide spectrum of emotive expressions. In this article below, we’ll take a look at Various Maya Tutorials for your source of inspiration which help you to deal with high-end 3D computer graphics. However, they all have something in common: they all give you clean idea about latest techniques. For those, who don’t know what is Maya? and what it can do?

Free Paint Texture Packs In the world of digital illustrations and design, texture is usually that very first stone that a designer has to put into the fundament of his work in order to build a reliable basement for the future successful and attractive designing work. Finding the most appropriate way to combine colors and visual effects, ranging from different shades of the single paint and to artful mixture of multiple colors, is the key focus and the core assignment for texture designers. They do their best to create interesting visual textures, which could suit a wide range of digital applications, from designing a web page to developing a software interface. The role of textures in graphical design is somewhat similar to that of the gray eminence. Textures always act at the backstage; they do not usually strike one’s eyes from the very first glance, but instead they form a reliable and substantial home front for the major parts of the illustration or design layout.

Ptex, the other side of texturing In May we published a piece on Ptex and UDIMs (UV mapping). This caused some interesting discussions, to say the least! Here is Part 2 of that article putting the case for Ptex, and perhaps addressing some of the issues raised in the original fxguide story. For this perspective on the issue of texturing we spoke to several members of Walt Disney Animation Studios. The good news is that, while UDIMs have proven to have been helpful for UV texture artists, Ptex is also set to improve and that Disney is looking to offer even more tools into the public domain to help that happen. Insane Bump This is a normal map generator from a single image, originally created by omaremad. Load a single layer picture, then choose filters/map/insanebump..., tweak the details, then hit OK. The normal/height/ambiend/specular maps for the picture will be created within the folder where the original picture resides. The script produces different files within the original image's directory: the _n is the normal map, the _s is the specular, the _d is the diffusion (just the color) the _a is the ambiend occlusion the _h is the displacement (or height map) Rename it to InsaneBump.py, make it executable and place it into the plug in directory.

Everyday 3D This Christmas, at Tool we wanted to create a small interactive experience to share with our friends and clients. Since lately I did experiment with compositing WebGL objets on a video [1, 2] I thought this is a cool technique that we can use. The idea was simple enough: we would shoot a Christmas tree in a nicely decorated room and composite-in a gift box that the user can interact with while watching the video. All this is rendered with WebGL – the video runs in the background and the 3d interactive content on top, both layers are matched in perspective and movement. To achieve this effect I had to use quite a lot of different pieces of software.

UDIM UV mapping Texturing is central to 3D. From UV to UDIM to Ptex, it is easy to think one technology has just displaced another, but the reality is more complex. UDIM UV mapping has enormous popularity for texturing in the face of much newer systems such as Ptex (which works very well in its own right). While Ptex may still yet win the texturing heart of pipelines around the world, it has not yet become the dominant force. Ptex 5 Tips for Better Materials Shading (the process of setting up materials) is an often over-looked step in the CG pipeline. I used to just play with the material settings until it looked a bit like what I was trying to make, and then move onto texturing thinking that that was all there is to it. A wood texture slapped on a diffuse shader. Bleh. However, in my never-ending quest for realism I’ve come to realize that shading is in fact the most important step in creating something believable.

To help you out a bit we’ve browsed through the large collection of textures over at deviantART and picked out some abstract textures. These can inspire you in making your own ones or you can use them. Just make sure to click on the images to go to the originals and read if the artists behind them have any restrictions or require credits first. Maybe this can be the helpful start to a new project?
