Digital-Tutors - Modeler's Toolbox: Topology Tips
1h 04m | Video: VP6 (.flv) 1280x720 | Audio: MP3 44.1KHz mono | 464MB
Genre: eLearning | Language: English | Level: Beginner

In this tutorial, we'll cover a series of lessons to discuss some of the issues we face when dealing with the topology of our models. The topology or edge flow of our models is an important consideration for many reasons. Over the course of the these lessons, we'll look at how topology can affect the shape of our models. We'll looks at ways of finding and cleaning up n-gons and triangles. We'll also talk about how the topology affects smoothing and edges of our models, and how much animation and deformation depends on good topology. Many of the lessons in this tutorial were created to address specific issues students have had in dealing with the topology of their models, so hopefully you'll be able to pick up a few tips to add to your Modeler's Toolbox.

Making Turntable Animations - Maya Techniques with Alex Alvarez
Making Turntable Animations - Maya Techniques with Alex Alvarez
English | AVC1 1280x800 | MP3 128 Kbps | 1.15 GB
Genre: eLearning

This tutorial demonstrates a simple, yet effective, solution for creating dynamic turntables. Utilizing Maya's two-node camera, motion path animation provides a flexible way to move the camera around the model. Precise and cycling rotations are combined with a moving camera, to allow for various views of the model in a single turntable. We begin the tutorial by creating a three-point lightrig using raytraced shadows and Mental Ray. This tutorial demonstrates how to render a Maya animation from the Command Line. While it is possible to render from within Maya using Batch Render, there are several advantages to avoiding this approach. More memory is available to the renderer when Maya is closed which is often a necessity. But furthermore, command line rendering simplifies the process of managing rendered frames, network rendering and the batch rendering of multiple scenes. This tutorial also demonstrates how to render the wireframe/topology of the model on top of the shaded turntable animation.
