This tutorial covers the full range of Maya's fast subsurface shaders, with a detailed examination of how to make human skin and render it in mental ray.
We will begin with a clear definition and explanation of the complex lighting behavior of subsurface scatter. Then we will examine how the set of 10 Maya shaders are used to simulate this lighting effect. Detailed examinations of all subsurface scatter shader variables are demonstrated with examples in a variety of lighting conditions. The last set of lessons goes deeper into creating shader networks for human skin.

Some start-up presets for working in Vray for maya and also in Arnold for maya. I use it often. Using presets means saving a lot of time for initializing. Some materials are from official websites of the software companies. Some are self made. Hope it helps.

In this course we will learn how the mental ray Production Shaders can be used to take our Maya renders to a new level of realism and efficiency.
Topics include rendering instantaneous motion blur using the mip_motionblur node, using the mip_card_opacity node to render accurate depth and normal passes, re-rendering portions of our images using the mip_render_subset node, compositing our 3D objects into live-action environments using the mip_cameramap, mip_matteshadow, and mip_mirrorball nodes, as well as many other mental ray Production Shaders found within Maya.

In this lecture, Eric Keller introduces the Octane Render plug in for Maya 2016 by Otoy. Octane is a GPU based rendering system that uses the advanced technology of the latest CUDA graphic cards to create physically based photo realistic rendering quickly and easily. Each chapter in this lecture is devoted to a different aspect of the software. Using a variety of Maya scenes Eric demonstrates how to use Octane’s toolset to create realistic shaders, lighting, textures, motion blur, and depth of field. You’ll learn how to use the IPR Render view to quickly preview changes as you make them. You’ll learn how to render hair, particle instances, render passes and image based lighting using Octane’s artist friendly system.

Gain experience when rendering complex greenery.

In this Maya tutorial we'll learn how to create a landscape image with complex greenery using V-Ray Scatter in Maya.
Outdoor scenes can sometimes be intimidating and we can overcome this by scattering thousands of geometries across a terrain. We'll learn how to create objects to be scattered by utilizing V-Ray proxies in Maya as well as setting up shaders and lighting. We'll also learn how to set up the render settings and render passes which we'll composite in Photoshop with a large amount of control.

Throughout this Maya tutorial we'll learn the three different ways Maya will give us outlining control during rendering, as well as talk about methods of using shaders to mimic a two tone look. From there we'll talk briefly about modeling considerations in making 3D look 2D. And finally, we'll discuss bringing separated render passes together in After Effects and then compositing them. By the end of this Maya training, you’ll have a much better understanding of how to create your own professional cartoon visualizations in 3D.
