Maya API and Applied 3d Math Videos

My Maya API videos will soon be released. I’ve gotten word that they will be open to the public very shortly. The Maya API series is about 6 hours worth of video covering several topics from creating commands, contexts, locators, deformers, file translators, and dependency graph nodes to working with callbacks, multi-threading, attribute editor templates, and distributing your plug-ins.

I’ve also created an Applied 3d Math video series. This series is a little over an hour and covers how to actually use 3d math with practical examples. This isn’t your typical how-to-multiply-matrices math tutorial. I don’t even go over how to multiply matrices! The focus of this series is how you can apply 3d math in your day-to-day work.

Stay tuned for the actual release. It should just be a matter of days.

Thanks so much for putting all this together Chad, the Python PDF you made is also a great resource. I’d also be up for throwing some cash your way via a donate button.

also were still waiting for the materials 🙂

The videos will not be released for free. The math series will be $30 USD and the API series will be 20% off at $80 USD for the first month of release and then put back at the normal price of $100 USD. There will be no DVD to buy, it is all streaming from the website.

$100 USD pretty reasonable, looking forward for release !

Don’t want to nag, but any news on a release date?
As I’ve got $100 burning in my pocket 🙂

When will these bad boys be available? The site is in beta, and says invitation only… such a tease!

Chad April 21, 2012 at 8:58 pm

The video’s are ready to go. A couple weeks ago, I was told the site would be ready in a couple weeks so hopefully this week!

Hi Chad, thanks for the initiative.
I am curious to know if these videos will be available for download, or like some other website limited to streaming only?
(I do hope they are available for download)

Chad April 23, 2012 at 9:35 am

The videos will be streaming only. Downloaded videos tend to have a higher piracy rate.
