Maya 是目前世界上最为优秀的三维动画的制作软件之一，主要是为了影视应用而研发的，所以在出世后不久就在《精灵鼠小弟》、《恐龙》等这些大片中一展身手。除了影视方面的应用外Maya在三维动画制作，影视广告设计，多媒体制作甚至游戏制作领域都有很出色的表现。初识Maya 是目前世界上最为优秀的三维动画的制作软件之一，它是Alias|Wavefront公司在论坛1998年才推出的三维制作软件。虽然相对于其他老牌三维制作软件来说Maya还是一个新生儿，但Maya凭借其强大的功能，友好的用户界面和丰富的视觉效果，一经推出就引起了动画和影视界的广泛关注，成为顶级的三维动画制作软件。
cmiVFX PyQt4 UI Development for Maya
cmiVFX just released the first of a series of training videos for PyQt4 UI Development for Maya, featuring Justin Israel. In today’s modern visual effects pipeline, the need for custom tools are proven self evident through the high quality nature of recent films, shows and video games. Here at cmiVFX, we build our own tools to help communicate many apps together as seamlessly as possible. The base of this video is not just for Maya, but for ANY app structure that exists today. Maya is covered in the second half of the video to help people associate a stronger principal interfacing structure with one of today’s most popular graphics packages. We would like to explicitly state that this video would be extremely helpful to a large range of VFX producers using different software pipelines. The goal of this video is to let the user interface their tools using PyQT4.
NOTE: This video opens up the gateway to all of you building solid python tools for interoperability between applications, regardless if they are Maya. (So you dont need Maya to learn from this video) This video is a KEYSTONE in a VFX Pipeline Library, and recommended to all people even remotely interested in Python at all.
Justin put the gui on the cmiVFX AtomSplitter app which allowed you to 3d camera track in Nuke and output to FBX with or without point cloud data. AtomSplitter is still available for download for those that want it.
