About this item
TRADIGITAL MAYA Focal Press adds a new star to its brightening constellation of superb Animation titles: The "Tradigital" line of books. "Tradigital" titles bridge the gap between animating with a particular software tool, and applying the 12 principles of animation to your work. The first three titles in the series cover: Maya, 3ds Max, and Blender. The 12 basic principles of animation were introduced by the Disney animators Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas, who wanted to codify the efforts of the leading Disney animators from the 1930s onwards to produce more realistic animations. The principles mainly teach animators how to create characters that look like they are adhering to the basic laws of physics. The principles also deal with more abstract issues, such as emotional timing and character appeal. Today, the core Disney principles are generally adopted by animators around the world. Though originally intended to apply to traditional, hand-drawn animation, the principles still have great relevance for today's more prevalent computer animation. Lee Montgomery presents "Tradigital Maya" which shows animators how to use the Maya controls, while applying the classical principles of animation and core techniques. With our new "Tradigital" series, we are finally bridging the gap between software-specific instruction and the world of classical animation.
