About This Class

Learn the basics of Autodesk Maya in this introductory course!

The industry program for Animation, Modeling and more.

Within this class you will learn how to create, scale, move, and rotate, and set keys for objects. You will also learn how to create your project files, save, and shoot playblasts of your animations.
