Hello! If you are new to Maya and want to quickly accelerate the learning curve please check out my tutorials on You-Tube. I created about 25 tutorials that cover an entire spectrum of what I would call "Maya Generalist Skills". I created these tutorials as a quick start guide to using Maya in the real world. Often times a graphic artist will have to work cross platform with After Effects, Maya, Photoshop and FCP or Premiere and these tutorials will give one a solid footing with using Maya in that workflow to create some simple and complex effects!
After watching hundreds of tutorials on You-Tube myself, I yearned for a cohesive "voice" that would walk me through all the basic Maya stuff I needed to know to get started. So here they are! Check out my You-Tube channel and Subscribe so you can get updates and such when I post new tutorials. I hope they help! Thanks for watching! STU
