Description

In this Maya tutorial we'll be simulating the fantasy effect of dry ice. The focus will be on the technical attributes of fluids which is responsible for simulating the dry ice effect. Throughout this tutorial you'll be provided with all necessary knowledge of fluid and emitter types to simulate dry ice smoke. We'll also advance to rendering and important settings in order to address the quality fluid rendering with minimal time. This Maya training will be beneficial for those who are looking to work in an FX studio environment because we'll follow time saving techniques to minimize computational steps. Software required: Maya 2014, After effects Cs3.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Pankaj Malik. I'm owner of a certified version of Maya, a freelance vfx artist, and the instructor. I'm learning and training Maya over a period of eight years. In this course, we are going to create the simulation process of dry ice effect, with Maya. Some of the key takeaway of watching this course, will include the simulation process of dry ice behavior, with Maya fluids; controlling and adjusting behavior in terms of pressure, weight, and physics; covering the shading and graph control to match with the real world dry ice effect. So by the end of this training, you will have learned the art of simulating dry ice effect with Maya. I'm really excited to work with Digital-Tutors, and share techniques with you. So, let's get started with lesson one.
