Introduction: Animate Growing Plants in Autodesk Maya

About: love blogging about filmmaking, animation and funny stuff! Great

In this short 5 Minute Autodesk Maya beginners tutorial you will learn how to grow plants, trees, fire etc. using Maya's built in Paint FX.

We will make a geometry (in our case Rock geometry) paintable and draw a PaintFX Rubber Plant on it which we will animate over a range of 60 frames. You will also see how you can add some more life to the plant adding turbulence / tree wind to it.
