View Full Version : Particle & Object Animation using sound

08-16-2005, 07:08 AM
i am trying to get objects in my maya file to animate to a .wav sound file. the aduio imports fine and i can scrub threw it. I am trying to use the Audio wave to drive several particle systems and to drive the scale and translate of objects in the scene.

Thanks for any suggestions or help you can offer

Hmm I think there might be a plugin for this now but what I used to do was to create keyframes from the audio amplitude in After Effects and then import those keyframes into Maya.

Oh it's called audioWave.mll and it's part of the bonus tools that yu can download for free from alias.com
