Smile Dover Studios Releases Maya 2013 Intermediate NURBS Modeling Video

Maya 2013 Intermediate NURBS Modeling Visual Effects Training Video Released

Maya 2013 Intermediate NURBS Modeling digs deeper into Maya's extensive NURBS modeling toolset. In this video visual effects artists, Andrew Hazelden and Russell Hazelden, explore the NURBS modeling techniques used to create an old-fashioned pocket watch.

Essential topics include: drawing NURBS curves to define the shape of each watch component, constructing surfaces from curves using a variety of NURBS surfacing tools, reshaping surfaces using soft selection and reflection, and replicating objects along a motion path using the animation snapshot tool.

Discover how to create smooth junctions between surfaces using the circular and freeform fillet tools. Learn how to use the trim tool to remove regions from NURBS surfaces by projecting curves on surfaces and intersecting surfaces.

Advanced topics include: fine-tuning NURBS Tessellation settings to produce smooth surfaces at render time and creating an ambient occlusion test render to evaluate the final pocket watch model using the mental ray renderer.

Maya 2013 Intermediate NURBS Modeling features over 2 hours of crystal clear 1080p high definition video. No steps are left out and every detail is explained with easy to follow step-by-step instructions.

Pricing and Availability

The Maya 2013 Intermediate NURBS Modeling video is available today as a download for $49.95 USD. For more information visit the Dover Studios website and watch the preview.
