Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, my name is Hao. I'm a freelance Maya generalist working in Los Angeles. We're going to be using Maya to create a animated robotic title sequence, and one of the things I hope to show you is the basics of making these types of projects from modeling to animation to lighting. Also, as part of this course I would like to show you my general workflow and methodologies and also some of the shortcuts that I use frequently. And hopefully by the end of this course you'll be able to make an animated title sequence on your own.
