    Maya Introduction

    cmiVFX has released a brand new learning series on Autodesk MAYA, taught by Martin Knapp. This is a project-based training series which means that instead of just listening to videos that talk about features and tools, students will actually be creating a complete 3D space scene from scratch. Even though students will be creating a complex 3D scene as their final project, this course is meant for those who are completely new to 3D animation, or 3D artists that want to make the switch over to Autodesk Maya.
