Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome to Introduction to Animation in Maya. I'm Delano with Digital Tutors an Autodesk authorized publisher. And I'll be guiding you through the intuitive and fun animation tools of Maya. Our goal here is to gain a strong foundation of the same animation tools that are used to create some of the most popular games and films. You'll learn everything from how to set up our animation preferences and create key frames to learning how animation can be modified from Maya's Time Slider and Graph Editor. We'll learn how to animate objects along the path, how to work nondestructively with animation layers, how to draw inside of our View Port with Maya's Grease Pencil tool, and how to animate with constraints. We'll even learn how to transfer animation between characters with the help of a few character sets and the Trax Editor. But again, you'll have the understanding you need to animate comfortably inside of Maya. So what say we get started.
