Mental Ray Workflows in Maya

Digital-Tutors Introduces mental ray® Workflows in Maya®: Global Illumination

New training provides Maya artists with a comprehensive guide to global illumination.

For Immediate Release

Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk® Authorized Publisher,released the latest learning solution in a growing library of video-based training for emerging digital artists, 'mental ray Workflows in Maya: Global Illumination' - containing over two hours of project-driven training for intermediate artists employing mental ray for realistic lighting in rendered environments. mental ray Workflows in Maya: Global Illumination teaches artists how to utilize creative practices to better understand global illumination and time-saving rendering techniques. Establishing mood and creating a real sense of depth can often be difficult to attain and learning how to effectively utilize global illumination for direct and indirect lighting can help artists simulate their desired results, said Chris Glick, Production Manager of Digital-Tutors. mental ray Workflows in Maya: Global Illumination was created to give artists a complete overview of global illumination and provide an array of practical examples that imitate the way light interacts with objects in a real world setting, added Glick.
