What will you learn?

Interface

We’ll start by going over the Maya interface and understand how to work with different layouts, scenes and how to select and manipulate objects.

Animation Basics

We'll go over different animation tools and methods, keyframing, interpolation types and even using the graph editor.

Setting Up for Animation

After learning our way around Maya, we'll create a new scene and import a rig. We'll learn how to use that rig, as well as how to work with cameras.

Animating a Shot

After our scene is ready for animation, we'll sketch our poses with the grease pencil, block our shot and polish it until it's ready for rendering.

Export a Finished Shot

After finishing the animation we'll learn some basic render methods to get a nice looking final render out of Maya, and then export it using After Effects to end up with a great looking shot, suited for a demo-reel.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the program’s learning curve.

Animation training can get expensive.

Animation courses can be pricey, often in the thousands of dollars. These programs cover entire skill sets, including many topics you'll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start animating right away.

From our students:

I would recommend Maya Animation to anyone who is just starting out, like I was. It inspired me to go further with animation as a career. This course helps understanding what you need to know to navigate around the program, even if you’re clueless about Maya. Basically - perfect for newcomers.

Esha Mehta, graphic artist / designer

Bloop Animation provides a very simple-to-use learning platform, making all the content easily accessible. The option of downloading the video lessons makes it easy for me to carry the course with me wherever I go. I always have it on my iPad and it’s a constant reference.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the software included with the course?

No, you will have to buy Maya from autodesk.com

What hardware do I need?

No worries, the course comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don’t like the course, simply email us and you’ll get a full refund, no questions asked.

You will always have access to all the courses and products you purchase from Bloop.

Will I get the whole course right away, or will it be available over a period of time?

You will have access to the entire course and materials immediately after purchasing.

I’ve never used this program before. Will I be lost?

This course was created assuming you’ve never used the program before. We go over all the basics to make sure you are able to follow along.

I don’t know how to animate. Will I be able to follow?

Yes, however I should mention that this course does not teach the concepts of animation, but rather shows you the tools and methods for animating with the software. Check out our Animation Foundations course for the basic principles of animation.
