This was an intro to the program. Got a free week to watch tutorial videos and meet our mentor and fellow classmates. The homework for this week is to set up and get familiar with Maya. There’s a lot more to the set up though and you have to get it just right for it to work. Installed a bunch of tools and plug-ins and later learned how to get it all working without crashing. <insert smiley face here>
Our main topic in the Q&A was the 12 Principles of Animation. A classmate asked, “what’s the least important principle in the 12 principles of animation?” The answer is none. All 12 are equally important.
