Research and Markets: Advanced Maya Texturing and Lighting, 2nd Edition Teaches Shop-Tested and Professional Texturing, Lighting, and Rendering Methods

DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 12, 2008— Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/44e60b/advanced_maya_text) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Advanced Maya Texturing and Lighting, 2nd Edition" to their offering.

If you already understand the basics of Maya, the industry-leading 3D animation and effects software, you will be ready to move on to the sophisticated topics in this updated edition of Advanced Maya Texturing and Lighting. Detailed, easy-to-follow instructions will teach you the real-world production secrets that professional animators use to achieve amazing results. In this second edition, you will find extensive and updated coverage of the latest theories and trends in addition to an enclosed CD with exclusive content to help you sharpen your skills.

Advanced Maya Texturing and Lighting, 2nd Edition is a culmination of Lee Lanier's professional and teaching experience. He learned advanced techniques working on such films as Mortal Kombat and Shrek, and as an instructor he craved an in-depth book that taught shop-tested and professional texturing, lighting, and rendering methods.

This second edition is up-to-date with Maya's latest texturing, lighting and rendering powerhouse features, including Toon shading, nCloth texturing, and multipass rendering. It begins with an introduction of lighting concepts, moves into a thorough explanation of texture mapping and Mayas hidden features for achieving great results, then provides the most thorough exploration ever published of Mayas Hypershade (where animators create connections between shaders, texture maps, lights, cameras, and geometry), and concludes with a detailed look at rendering in Maya, including everything from batch rendering to global illumination workflow and HDRI techniques.
