Welcome to this course where we will learn advanced ways to use Maya’s motion graphics toolset called MASH to create an elaborate logo animation.
We will start with a flat 2D logo and make it into an appealing 3D logo animation.
This course is intended for intermediate to advanced users. Hopefully, you’re somewhat familiar with Maya before taking this course, maybe you’ve taken one of my other beginner Maya courses, or if you’re a quick learner you can try and jump right in but you may have to watch the course on 1x speed and rewatch certain sections to be able to follow along.
All the project files are included for you to download and follow along.
We will learn:
Transform a 2D vector image into a 3D shape
Voxelize the logo
Animate these voxels with precise control
Learn how procedural animation will allow us to make quick changes on complicated animations
Animate objects along a path
Add trails to objects
Create a dynamic simulation
Control the simulation
Add and control color change
Light and render the scene
