When I got Unreal Engine 4 and I started tinkering around, I was so amped. Love the program, it’s really incredibly put together.
As we’re all aware, 3D modeling and static mesh creation goes down in the 3rd party apps like Maya and Blender.
Now I’m totally chill with using either one, but from what I’ve seen Maya is a little more complex and has more tools to be utilized due to it being a paid program
Now I won’t lie, when I was dropped in front of Maya for the first time I felt like a 2nd grade child staring down adobe photoshop Cs6 for the first time, I was monumentally confused. However, I really want to learn Maya, and I want to become as good as I possibly can be at 3D modeling because, well, if you’re going to be populating a virtual world with buildings, tables, weapons, people, trees, bushes, etc you better be pretty decent at making them! And I know in order to do that it is going to take some time, and some serious practice.
But with that being said, looking online it’s reeeeally hard to find good Maya tutorials. I don’t need any of the beginner overview stuff, as with enough tinkering it’s pretty easy to get a feel for the application, but if you feel there is a crucial video that really opened the gate of creativity to you and Maya, please do share it, I’d love to give it a view
So my final question is, how did you guys learn Maya? And what videos/methodology of learning did you use?
