One of the most difficult effects to achieve in 3d animation is accurate and attractive cloth. From clothes to constraints, cloth is a desirable but not very difficult to simulate. In the following two videotutorials we will create and animate a cloth in maya in a few minutes.
One of the innovations implemented in new Maya 2008 is the portal light. The portallight is used in interior lighting, is a shader that connects to a area light for channeling rays of the phisical sun + sky that are lost in our interior scene to go to better illuminate areas not exposed to direct sunlight or skylight. Use the mia_portal_light shader to create a portal light to reduce fin…

The Depth of field is the blur that the camera make on the objects (or the distance) that are outside the focus, before or after.
This videotutorial show how to create the depth of field (DOF) in Maya. These are some simple steps to create cool DOF renders:
create a distance mesaure…
