Maya users need a new Maya to Ae tool. Although After Effects can open files natively, that system has been deemed sufficiently inept and only imports the most basic things which needs very specific settings – So there’s some hoops you have go through before getting those few items from your main program (Maya) into another app like Adobe After Effecstions or Nuke for example.
MAYA USERS: Need A New Tool In order To Create Differnt Styles Of Work Such As 3d , Animation And Visual effects.
We’ve always been a bit frustrated with the workflows for getting Maya scenes into After Effects so we decided to build our own method.Ian Waters – mash.mainframe.co.uk
Maya has been stuck in the mud when it comes to integrating with other applications. The first step was 3ds Max, and now there’s some movement on Cinema 4d as well thanks to Cineware from Mainframe North’s Ian Waters who started writing something during his daily train commutes. This finally brings us close enough for a Maya-Ae tool which can be used effectively by all!
MASH 3.1 sets the groundwork for a Viable Maya to AE Tool
Cineware has released their new Maya to Ae tool, which is a welcome and great start for those who are looking at getting important data from one program in another. The advanced premise can be found across many programs with more sophisticated features but this does not mean that it’s not worth checking out!
The Maya to Ae tool in MASH 3.1 saves out a common JSON file that can then be imported into After Effects, bringing with it lights and nulls from your scene without the need of baking animations or naming solids by any specific convention – all you have left is just gather up some materials!
The Maya to Ae tool is a much-needed addition for MASH users, who can now include data such as light intensities and camera focal lengths in their animated objects. It’s also worth noting that this new feature will be included with After Effects too!
The Maya to Ae tool is currently included with MASH, but it does not rely on the installer. At some point in time this may change and become available as a separate plug-in instead.
MASH is a fantastic tool that will help you create the perfect After Effects project with ease. With their latest update, users can now import animations and simple objects from Maya directly into any of their projects without ever opening up another software program!
MASH 3.1 also includes some new nodes, with a blend deformer and jiggle node for those who want to shake things up!
The Blend deformer will allow you to blend from one shape to another using maps, falloff objects or even a curve. This includes the ability inflate your model (expand them along their normals) and smooth things out with an inflation function that’s very simple-to use! You can also choose which parts of your 3D print are inflated for creative transitions like never before seen in videos today; all these attributes work well together so it really takes advantage of each tool rather than making something difficult where they don’t mesh well together but come close enough just by accident sometimes due too limited time constraints etc..
The new jiggle deformer offers a more simple and faster way to create realistic, life-like shakes than Maya’s native own. Utilizing maps or objects for falloff will allow you control over its affect on your scene which makes it easy enough that anyone can use them!
