MaxDepth’s new course shows how to create tools to help make curve animation and motion paths in Maya.
Find yourself animating characters that fly slither and grow along a spline? Then you should create some tools that can help automate and better control that process. A new course from Maxdepth.tv authored by Delano Athias shows how to create a system to set up curve animation and motion path actions with minimal effort in Maya.
“In this course, we will learn how to leverage Python to design a tool in Maya that will allow you to attach objects to a curve in a more efficient manner with greater control.”
The tutorial shows how to prototype a tool to connect items to a path manually. By the end of the course, you will have a tool complete with an intuitive UI that makes the system user-friendly.
So if you’re an Intermediate to Advanced Maya user that would like to learn how Python can be used to improve productivity, then this is the tutorial for you!
