Mixing Maya’s MASH and nHair for Animation

3D Splanchnic shows how you can create a system that uses both MASH and nHair to create a dynamic animation.

Most features in Maya are not islands. That is to say that you can use them interconnectedly with other elements to create new systems. Some of those relationships may not be immediately apparent—for example, MASH and nHair.

Combining MASH with Dynamic Hair.

A new tutorial from 3D Splanchnic shows how you can create an animation showing the growth of a polypeptide chain. While the tutorial is specific to biomedical animation, the technique is ultimately useful for other tasks too. As 3D Splanchnic, his result also looks like goldfish poo.
