Since you are listing tutorials involving Dynamics, I thought I would also list some for DMM - our high performance material physics system which is included in Maya 2012. Please be sure to upgrade to Maya hot fix 4 to ensure you have all the latest bug fixes as well as the increased Tetrahedral limit.

Wayne Hollingsworth DMM Tutorials - Destroying columns, Blowing up a phone booth and causing a road to collapse. These are the same ones posted in the Autodesk Area site. Wayne is a VFX expert as well as an instructor at Gnomon.

Shattering the ground with low gravity - Fantastic tutorial by VFX expert Martin Romero on how to destroy a road in DMM. Martin shows how to also make use of gravity control to enhance the destructive look.

Keying DMM Objects - A short tutorial on how to properly key objects for kinematically-augmented simulations.

Welding DMM - With DMM you can weld or glue together objects. Welding is lower overhead and this short tutorial will show you how to make use of this feature.

Splinterizing with DMM - Neat tutorial on how to make use of the DMM “Splinter” feature where you add additional detail geometry to broken objects automatically. Useful for avoiding that “tetrahedral” look.

DMM Wood - DMM is great at simulating anisotropic dynamics like those found in wood. However, to make use of this, you need to stretch the tet mesh in a particular direction. This is a nice tutorial on how to do that.

Making at DMM Chair - Great tutorial by MrTheWeight on how to create a DMM chair and adjust its material properties.

DMM Basics Tutorial by Creative COW - Michael Hurwicz does a great tutorial on the basics of DMM.

Standard DMM Tutorials - All our standard tutorials in one giant file.

If you want to see what DMM can do, check out the spectacular work by the Moving Picture Company here: MPC DMM Work - This showreel shows off some great shots from “Sucker Punch (samurai fight)” and “X-Men First Class (yacht destruction)”

It’s been a while since I’ve contributed, so here is a quick tutorial I whipped up on how I make a Maya killField:

Maya killField

Simple trick and works much more efficiently than using the ‘kill’ feature of regular particle collisions.
