This skill path is designed to take you from the end of the Maya: Core Skills skill path into a tightly focused study of building common visual effects elements for television and film using Autodesk’s Maya. This path will help build a strong foundation for working with the major dynamics systems of this extremely robust application.

Courses in this path


The courses in this section will expose you to the fundamentals of Maya’s dynamics systems including particles, volumetric fluids, and Bifrost.


Once you have a solid understanding of the concepts covered in the first section, the courses at the intermediate level will help to push your skills even further by combining multiple solvers into one project, and exploring more complex uses for Maya’s dynamic systems.


In this section you will have the chance to explore Maya’s ocean system, learn about data management for a large scale volumetric fluid simulation, and get your first taste of character effects using Bifrost and XGen.
