Maya wiki news, updates

New wiki backend

I looked at upgrading twiki, and it was exhausting. Better to make a clean start and a bit of a tidy up. This is now mediawiki (yes, like wikipedia), but with a flash skin courtesy of [1]. Gonna run it in silent mode for a while as I copy stuff over, then do a magic switcheroo.

VRay

It's time. MayaVray ... I'm freelancing after being at Animal for a few years, realised its been too long since I've had to do any actual on-box work. I've gotten a little spoiled with all the AL toys, so this is a good opportunity to learn a few things, replicate some of the AL workflow out in the real world, other stuff. DJV is a good starting point; I missed RV as soon as I walked out of AL, DJV is free, simple works. Great playback tool, quite customisable, runs on windows/osx/linux. You can tie it into deadline so you can flip sequences directly from the monitor, sweeeet. [2]

And we're back!

Finished my time at Dr.D and houdini, back at Animal Logic now, which means back in maya. Expect a few minor updates as I try and get reaquanted with my old nemesis...

Minor changes

I'm trying to update the rigging section a bit, remove some old links (and the plugin section which was all dead). I still think tokeru is a very good ressource and I wish it stays up to date and useful. -- Maya.MattBernadat - 30 Sep 2011

Maya for houdini folk

I'm currently working at Dr.D studios using houdini. Thought I'd setup a section here for maya users looking to get into houdini. If it sprawls out too large I might split it into a separate wiki, or maybe ask the nice folk at odforce if I can copy files over there. We'll see. Enyhoo, have a read of MayaToHoudini .

Maya Mailing list

After the highend3d mailing list died, I setup a new one. Very quiet list, good signal to noise ratio, if you've stumbled across this site, you should probably join. :) http://groups.google.com/group/maya_he3d/
