Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have to learn this over the summer and at least be able to stumble through it by august for an art position with an indie developer.
I'm not even sure where to start. After years of being trained on the adobe interface the UI on this is just mindblowing. It's just toolbars everywhere. Is there a place online, a la Adobe TV or Lynda.com focused on Maya?
Does anyone recommend any specific books or reading for Maya?
And also does anyone have any tips for someone new to the program?
