Autodesk Masterclasses from SIGGRAPH 2009 – For Free!

Category : Presentations · by Aug 4th, 2009

Autodesk has posted their Masterclasses from 2009 for free over at The Area. Just sign up (it’s free) and enjoy some tips and tricks from real masters of Autodesk softwares; including 3ds max, Maya, Mudbox, Softimage (nope, it is not called XSI any more), Motion Builder and mental ray. Here is the link;

I personally find these two classes to be very interesting, in 3ds max:
Non-Photorealistic Rendering Techniques in Autodesk® 3ds Max®
with Gary M. Davis
Giant Robots: Using mental ray shaders to integrate CG elements into real shots
with Håkan “Master Zap” Andersson (Swedish guy! :) )

And I think I have a look at this one as well, its in Maya:
Fracture: procedural, collision event-driven destruction
Kevin Mannens (I do like destruction ;) )

I’ll have a look at the Mudbox class as well if I got the time.
