Class Class: 3D Asset Creation Full-Day Workshop

What do Uncharted 4, Rachet & Clank and Call of Duty all have in common? Each of these hit games uses Autodesk’s Maya software to generate the 3D characters and environments that bring them to life for millions of players around the world. Now, it’s your turn.


Maya is one of the game industry’s most powerful tools. Its animation, modeling, simulation, and rendering software provides an integrated, powerful toolset. Use it for animation, environments, motion graphics, virtual reality and character creation. Whether you’re looking to build custom games of your own in 3D or get a job at a larger games or media studio, Maya proficiency will help you craft interactive 3D experiences like no other. In this full-day workshop, you’ll team up with pro Lee Wolland – the Art Director, Technical Artist and Creator of the breakout hit fighting game Punch Planet to learn the ins and outs of Maya. This workshop will teach you the basics of using Maya and Photoshop for asset creation by going hands-on. By the end, you’ll be able to build your own assets or modify existing ones for use in Unity or Unreal.
