Maya Dynamics menu set
Active and Passive Rigid Bodies

  1. More about the Dynamics menu set - Particles, Soft/Rigid Bodies, Fields with links to video tutorials.

  2. Very good Rigid Bodies tutorial and introduction by Michael O'Rourke. User ID: mayatuts Password: morourke when you get there. Uses Gravity and Collisions, so it will reinforce your understanding of what you have already learned using Particle Effects and applying fields such as Wind and Gravity to particle shapes.

  3. The creating a fountain assignment uses particle effects. Review this page while you compare and contrast particle simulations to Rigid and Soft Body simulations.

  4. Halloween lab class review of the first day that the Dynamics menu set was introduced using Particle Effects and fields, make collide, etc. Octal 31 = Decimal 25.

  5. Go to the 810:088 Fall of 2008 Maya home page.
