Been a while…

Sorry for the time I’ve not been posting.

Work has been quite a rollercoaster, the highs and lows of advertising taking its toll initially and now springing back to heights unseen for a while.

Anyway, I have put the 3DWorld tutorials for magazine 111 – 117 up on my website.  These are:

111 – How can I make an occlusion textureUV map in Maya?

112 – Is there a simple flocking procedure in Maya?

113 – How do I create is a material with the look of tarnished silver?

114 – Is there a way to stop Paint Effects flickering during camera moves?

115 – How do I create a tooth brushing action in Maya?

116 – How do I simulate a magnet, like balls rolling to a common point?

117 – How do I grow Maya’s Hair system?

I hope they are of some interest.  If there is anything that you would like to see on the website, or even have a question asked, please ask me.

Thanks for reading

My Maya Tutorials are back online

Hello there, long time no blog.

Well, I am delighted to let you know that the tutorial section of my website is back up and running.  About time too.  There are 33 tutorials covering a wide range of topics from modelling objects, through animation, dynamics, rendering and some compositing. 

I have some more up and coming – one in particular about nCloth which will go up in a couple of months that shows exactly how to make it… well, you’ll have to wait.   Wow, I’m such a tease.

Anyway go to http://www.garynoden.co.uk follow the link to tutorials and check them out.

Computer Arts

I have just completed a noob tutorial for Computer Arts Projects which will feature in Magazine 117 about how to do simple rigging and deformation animation in Maya.  It’s been some time since I did any rigging, and was a good exercise for me as well as being a good introduction for Designers on how Maya can be used in their output.

Also, check out the magazine anyway.  It’s amazingly great quality and gives a wonderful insight into how people are using print and design media in the modern day.

Check out the magazine now here and, if you can, when my tutorial goes to press in 2 month’s time.

Maya Tutorials updated.

Morning from wet and windy Manchester in the UK.

I managed to get some time together to put up two new tutorials on the website:

Q&A107 from 3DWorld – Is it possible to do Toon lines on Instances?

Q&A108 from 3DWorld – Is there a way to transfer a lattice between objects?

you can get them by this direct link to the tutorials page here.

You can also see my new reel here too.

If by any chance you want a question answering about Maya, please let me know and if it fits in with the magazine it might even make it into print as a full blown tutorial.

See you around.

THE 2008 REEL IS LIVE

I’ve just uploaded the new reel to my website, www.garynoden.co.uk.  you can find it here.

Please leave me some kind of feedback, whenther you like ot or not.

If you want a breakdown of the jobs, also ask me and I’ll send one to you

Thanks

Gary
