In this Complete Beginner's course, we cover the absolute basics of getting you started using Maya with a focus on games, starting from the absolute first time opening the software - all the way through modeling, unwrapping, and texturing your first game asset! We'll start off with some basic introductions to the UI and software, and dive right in to many of the common tools you'll need for game asset modeling.
"Learn by doing" as we take you through the complete process of modeling our military style radio prop, unwrap the asset, and cover basic texturing techniques for the asset. If you've ever wanted to learn the important features of Maya for Games, but weren't sure where to go, this course has you covered!
