2. Hard surface Model

This is a practice of modelling in Maya, by mixing more than 3 household appliances.

3. Vray Render learning:

4. Using After Effects to make storyboard:

5. Render a ball with 3point light:

6. Making an animation of bouncing balls:

In the last four weeks, from almost know nothing about Maya to get used to it, I felt that I’m more interested in it than before. It’s not so scared. And I feel that learning a new tool could inspire me a lot of new ideas that I’ve never thought about before. I will keep working on it and also trying to connect with my previous project.

A new course I am studying

January 12, 2015 § Leave a comment

This is the first day of my new course called Computer Animation in Sheridan College, ON, Canada.

Basically, this course is focus on how to use maya to make animation. I was so afraid of doing 3D software things before I came here. Just as last year, when I was doing my final work, actually, I want to use some 3D technique. Cause if I could use 3D software, my work will be more surreal, don’t want 3D technique become my limitation. So, here I came! Out of my comfort zone, to fight with maya! Though I don’t really like the animation style of some North American animation, but I think this is just to learn a new tool and also, I could learn some film and animation knowledge in here. I suppose after I learned the 3D animation software, my work will have more possibilities.

I will continue posting my learning progress in this blog to share with you guys.

The first day~ I will just show you my school 😉

Firstly, we filled up the holes on the wall.

In the afternoon I started to built up my chest of drawer:

This morning I went to buy the material used in the bottom of drawer, this material is perfect for it, but unfortunately it is not for sale…

So I just come back and use tracing paper to test:

To dig a hole in the bottom of drawer, I use a paper instead of piece of wood to measure the accuracy position:

This took many time, because I think this video’s content is simple so editing became very important. How to edit it and make it more interesting is the problem I have to work out. After that I chose some music for each scene to give it a feeling of different emotions.

And then modify the colour to make them look better:
