Description

In this exciting course, we will delve into the simulation of a disintegration effect using Maya's powerful nCloth particles and fluid dynamics tools. We will cover in detail the process of breaking an efficient mesh for disintegration purposes and later emitting the detailed secondary particles and fluid simulations. This course also covers a wide variety of tools and techniques along with MEL functions and expressions. By the end of this training, you will have a clear understanding of how to simulate a detailed disintegration effect. Software required: Maya 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Pankaj Malik. I'm an Adobe Certified professional of Maya and freelance effects artist. In this course, we are going to simulate a disintegration effect using Maya. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to use the powerful nucleus cloth simulations to create a prior effect. Second, we are going to create the advanced particles to add more realism and secondary effects using the MEL expressions. Last, creating expression-based fluids to add the final realism to our effect. So by the end of this training, you will be able to simulate your own disintegration effect. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these tips and techniques with fellow artists. So, let's get started with lesson one.
