Project Description

With this course we will be looking into the process for taking a short animation and enhancing it dramatically with dynamic water and hair.

As our mermaid emerges from the ocean we will enlist the help of one of Maya`s newest tools, Bifrost, to quickly and easily simulate the water around her to generate a realistic splash. In addition to this we will also investigate the use of nHair give her long flowing locks which also animate as she moves.

As you work through the course we will also look at some key tricks and shortcuts you can take, essential to whether you are looking to produce a still image or an animated sequence.

I hope you enjoy this course, if so please let me know.
