Learning Maya 6: Foundation is your key to learning Maya quickly and easily.

With Learning Maya 6: Foundation you′ll model with NURBs and Polygons, animate, texture map, add visual effects and render your scenes. We′ve also added instructor–led chapter overviews, presented by an Alias Certified Instructor to further demonstrate the concepts covered in the book.
