organic atom like Blob (Maya)

19 May 2008 - 06:27 PM

So I'm trying to make a Sphere split into two in a dough-like way but finish in a more defined shape.
I was thinking maybe nCloth but it need to be a more defined shape so maybe more of a rigged thing idk.
It will go from one Sphere and split into two with a bar connecting kinda like an atom!

Has anyone done something like this ?? Any ideas would help


Selecting Faces that are faces the camera

03 April 2008 - 06:39 PM

I am trying to figure a way that I can select only the faces that are facing the camera I am looking thru.

I am texturing a building and I need to map the side faces like inside the window sil so that they don't look all stretched.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it

Audio Driven Animation in Maya

04 February 2008 - 10:00 PM

Has any one had experience with using Audio waves in Maya to drive different attr 's?
Using script called as_audioAnimator found on Highend3d but it is a little buggy.

Does anyone have a better script or method?
