Product Description

Review

"This book is one of the best resources for students simply because it eliminates the steep learning curve of Maya while cohesively applying the fundamental principles of animation."

--Ron Pucherelli, Animator, PDI DreamWorks

"How to Cheat in Maya 2012 is required reading for my animation classes and is a valuable reference for all animators."

--Cheryl Cabrera, Professor of Character Animation,University of Central Florida

"This book is an invaluable resource, because it focuses almost exclusively on using the animation tools in Maya. One heck of an addition to your animation library!"

--Kyle Mohr, Animator, Pixar Canada

This is not at all what I was expecting, I thought it would show you all the very basics of Maya so you can get started in it!!! I assumed wrong! It turns out you have to know a lot about Maya in the first place. This is not for beginners.

HASH(0x8ce0b870) out of 5 stars Great Animation Tool 7 Nov. 2014
By Universal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my fourth year using Maya, and this book has a wealth of information. The video/project tutorials assist in quick references and techniques to navigate the program. You should be mindful how to apply these techniques to your individual projects. All graphics are legible and easy to understand; the character models change with each issue.

HASH(0x8ccab9cc) out of 5 stars Good info, bad Kindle layout 8 Nov. 2014
By Animatrix, artist, reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book with lots of helpful info but I bought the Kindle edition to carry with me on my iPad and the formatting SUCKS!!! It is all screwed up. One page will have section 1, then 4, then 3 then 6... makes no sense. Don't you guys check your work? It does have great info but I feel cheated that it's so hard to read.

HASH(0x8ccab8d0) out of 5 stars Exceeds expectations... clear screen shots etc 12 Dec. 2013
By L. Massaar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Exceeds expectations... clear screen shots, no disc (as expected) but website downloads (as expected) is far more sensible IMHO.

Revised for Maya 2014 and new features used in exercises. Lot of tips and asides from an authority on animation.

Loving this book. :-)
HASH(0x8cc6e024) out of 5 stars I love this book 13 Jun. 2015
By Maple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book.
I learned so much from it!
I had to skip the first chapter to work with a later one. For some reason the first chapter expects more maya experience out of you then following ones. O.o

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book for aspiring 3D artists. Even if you think you know it all, you'll still learn a thing or two.
