For professional CG artists and graduates of our Introduction to Texturing tutorial, our Advanced Shading rendering tutorial looks at advanced shading theory in detail using Maya Hypershade and Mental Ray.
This course features 17 hours of tuition divided across 12 different Maya scenes. Using models we've created specifically to emulate the challenges of post-production, you'll learn how to create photo-realistic shaders and reflections for materials such as wood, glass, plastics and metals. We then move on to procedural textures and file textures, including the use of utility nodes to create sophisticated effects such as X-Ray shaders.
At the end of the rendering tutorial you’ll have refined your shading skills and be able to create the kind of subtle, convincing shaders and colour effects that will catch the eye of professional studios.
This course is the perfect companion to our Advanced Lighting Course.
