My next video series is in progress. You can check out the introduction video here and download the open source code on my GitHub.
I have created another video series over at CGCircuit.com. This one is titled Creating a Custom Jiggle Deformer and goes over the creation of a custom jiggle deformer that you can use in your projects. Check it out here. And here is the intro video:
This is the last week of the 20% introductory price of my Introduction to the Maya API videos over on CGCircuit, so if you’re interested and want the discount, this is the last week to do so. On July 1, the price will go to the original $100.
This class introduces students to the Maya API. The Maya API allows programmers and scripters to customize Maya with innovative new technology and create tools to support a production pipeline. This class is the launching point to more advanced topics using the Maya API. While the Maya API is accessible in both C++ and Python, this class will focus mainly on C++ since C++ is the language that most plug-ins should be written in a production environment.
CGCircuit.com is now open to the public. My Maya API video series and Applied 3d Math series are now available for purchase without the need for an invitation. Check them out if you haven’t already.
Here is another sample from my upcoming Maya API video series. In the video I discuss custom locators and go through how to implement them. The video series should be available around January 2012.
This is a demo of a Maya context that I developed as part of my upcoming Maya API instructional video series. It draws curves from a mesh. It could be used to draw hair curves or something along those lines. The video series should be available around January 2012.
For some reason, the Maya artisan tool does not have a move brush so I wrote my own.
