If your looking for beginner stuff then i would recommend getting the free cd of maya traing videos:

Yeah, the cds from or awesome if you have *never* used Maya before. Very detailed and Buzz is good at explaining things and never rushing you.

And also, they are 100% FREE.No gimics. Type in your address and in a week or so you'll have a cd.That simple.They only ask to join the forums.

Thumbs down

thanks for the maya tutorials, now i can test more than just a book

Ok guys i went through most of these links, and all im looking for is a tutorial running through the different sub d operations. I am a max user, and know it inside and out, and use meshtools and cspolytools. Where are these tools for Maya and how do i use them! I would hate to think that to extrude a surface i have to enter a numerical number in a window and hope it comes out right. Thanks guys.

edit:nevermind i figured out maya haaahhaaha

AroundTheFur: If you have MAYA, just hit F1 and then look for SUB DIVISION SURFACES. It will tell you everything you need to know about how to work with SUB-Ds. If you're used to working with POLYs but still want that SUB-D smoothness, look for POLYGON PROXY MODE. It gives you a polygon mesh while viewing a smoothed SUB-D surface.
