Dynamics exercise in Maya


  • Discuss Import/Export options and how those options might affect render times.  ie. import IGES & STEP then Adobe Illustrator curves & EPS, PDF curves then use those geometries to create polygon meshs to use in renderings.
  • Discuss NURBS vs Polygon modeling techniques and converting between those various options.
  • Discuss real-world modeling or render techniques and offer solutions to various past problems (per instructor).
  • Discuss and compare Maya Render vs Arnold Render to other render tools available.
