08-10-2005, 11:23 PM
Hi there. New to the forums, but I thought I should make an entrance with a
couple of tutorials. 3d total already hosted a tutorial on rigging for animation
with math and expressions. I have submitted two new tutorials and hope
3dtotal will host these one too. Here are the new tutorials:
rigging a hand with driven keys (http://www.final3.com/html/tutorials/drivenKeys.htm)
Modeling a nut and a bolt (http://www.final3.com/html/tutorials/nut.htm)
I hope they are a good read for some maya people out there :)

striker: No problem mate :) I'm also writing a tutorial on modeling now. It's about cutting holes and adding different shapes without losing the original shape. Mostly cylindershapes. It will be up this weekend I guess.
IBE: wow, there's a language for itself... I'm not sure I understood all of it, but...
If you want to focus on animation you shouldn't bother too much about tutorials on the web actually. Don't exclude them, but you need the basics from older sources. I would reccomend you read "the animators survival kit" and study the traditional 2d animation before you go onto the 3d part. You should do drawings and to keep up with the 3d package so you're ready, start modeling and rigging in Maya. You should also download other rigs and models to do research on how other people do their rigs.
You say you want to learn from scratch. Start modeling stuff you can find in your room. Feel free to model the nut. You might learn some shortcuts here and there. I'll also upload another modeling tutorial this weekend that handles some other modeling issues.
