Autodesk Maya is an animation and effects software program used in the broadcast, film, game development and web design industries. The course begins with a practical overview of Maya, from its intuitive interface to project manage- ment. Building from this foundation, basic techniques in modeling, animation, lighting and rendering will be addressed. By the end of the course, students will have created a 10-second animation piece. The course is an introduction to a sophisticated application; previous experience with a 3D program is highly recommended.
