In this course we will cover many of the methods for working between ZBrush 4 and Maya.
ZBrush and Maya are both very powerful 3D applications that each offers its own strengths. By combining these two programs into our workflow, we can take advantage of those strengths to get our work done quicker and more efficiently. In this course, we’’ll cover many of the tools and techniques we can use to merge Zbrush and Maya into our workflows. We’ll explore methods for manually transferring geometry back and forth between the two applications. We’ll also look at creating color maps, Normal maps, and Displacement maps, and transferring those to Maya. We’ll look at the GoZ pipeline and how it will make working with Zbrush and Maya a really seamless process. We’ll also look at some practical reasons for choosing to use Maya and Zbrush in tandem. In the end, you’ll have a good understanding of how you can work efficiently between Maya and Zbrush, leveraging the strengths of both to create your best work.

RealFlow is a unique fluids and body dynamics software package which allows you to simulate anything from a single drop of water to a massive tsunami crashing across a beach, sweeping debris in its wake. RealFlow remains the definitive tool for the creation of flawlessly realistic simulations, and has been used to create some of the most ground-breaking visual effects ever seen, in movies like ?Avatar?, ?District 9?, ?2012?, ?GI Joe?, and ?The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?, as well as countless commercials, TV programs, and game cinematics.
