In this Maya and After Effects tutorial we'll go over creating a narrative concept through animation and camera composition. We'll build an edit through simple blocked out animation to get the timing and edit right. Cameras will be discussed in how they can add to the story, how they are to be properly set up and what lens to use. We'll cover shot selection and how they lead to following shots in order to create a well narrated story via visuals. By the end of this Maya and After Effects training you'll understand how a Previs is created, adjusted to transfer cameras and edit to full production. Software required: Maya 2015, After Effects CC.
