INTRO
The MAYA ADRENALIN course is 10 days in duration over 2 weeks. You’ll cover all of the essential basics from model building, texturing, lighting to basic hierarchical animation.

MAYA ADRENALIN covers the same ground as the Maya Go course for the first 5 days but progressively develops your skills in the more complex areas of the software- particularly in character animation. The object of the course is to produce your first credible animation using the skills you’ve learned.
