Animating Creation Tutorial: The second half (finally)

Posted by Shawn Hendriks, 2 May 2012 8:00 pm

 Let me start by saying I'm sorry.  Its been over 4 months since I posted the first half of my class.  In my defense it has been a very busy 4 months ;-).  Well here it is finally this is the continuation of my class Animating Creation from Autodesk University 2011.  If you haven't seen the first half yet please check that out first here.

In this second video I aim for a more organic style and cover a number of tips using modifiers in 3ds Max (bend is your friend) and also take you through creating another useful script to automate some tedious processes.  I hope you enjoy it.

I'd also like to remind everyone that Autodesk University is accepting submissions for classes and session until May 22nd.  I fyou think you can create classes like this then please submit them.

Hi Timbot. I'll be at AU but I am managing a bunch of the bigger talks and the overall M&E presence so I didn't think I would have enough time to prepare a class this year unfortunately. If you are there though you will likely see me. I'll also be coordinating drinking locations for the entertainment customers that want to hang out together.

I haven't seen part 1 but i find this very interesting. Like you said, people forget the possibilities of the bend mod very quick...
Hope to see another post from you (when you can find time for it ;-) )
