In this collection of lessons we will learn about the animation principle of ease in and ease out.
In this course, we will explore the animation principle of ease in and ease out in Maya. Why is ease in and ease out so important? Do our characters always need to cushion in and out of their movements, or are there special cases where doing so will just not work? We will answer these questions as we cover tips and techniques for using this principle to help enhance the sense of authenticity in characters. By the end of this course, you will have a deeper understanding of the principle of ease in and ease out, which will help your characters become more life-like to the viewer.

The Product and Automotive Design Kit (PAD) is a purpose-built materials library of Presets designed to help you effectively visualize and present your designs. If you are using modo to create consumer product or automotive imagery, these Presets can save you the trouble of painstakingly creating materials to accurately mimic real world surfaces like leather, carpet, tinted glass and mesh grills – or even “x-ray” materials that reveal interiors. All the work has been done for you; letting you concentrate on applying these carefully crafted materials or creating new variants of your own. The three hundred and fifty included Presets let you showcase every curve, line and silhouette of your model with incredible speed.
140 base Presets
25 displacement patterns
20 bump patterns
5 mesh Presets for lighting
160 color channel Presets
Suitable for all modo users
modo 501 (SP2 or later)
modo 401 (SP2 or later)
What is included in the Kit?
The Product and Automotive Design Kit consists of material Presets, mesh Presets, instructional videos and a guided manual that explains not only how to apply the Presets but also how to change the very workflow material Preset application in modo. For example, the new Process Presets will revolutionize the way you work by introducing adjustable layers that leverage information from your custom Preset in order to create a multitude of effects (e.g. bump stencil to create grill effects) found in the product and automotive design world.
