Course Overview

With films under his belt like The Hobbit, Avatar and Tin-Tin, Weta TD Shaun Friedberg has utilized Python in Maya extensively. If you already have basic skills, Shaun can teach you how to get to the next level. With a careful weekly plan of assignments covering OOP, QT and the Python Api you'll find you up skill quickly.

Shaun says, "Intermediate Python in Maya is the next step on our journey to becoming better Technical Artists/Directors. In this workshop we will do a brief review of basics, and expand on those ideas, taking our working Python knowledge to the next level."

"The most popular questions asked in the first workshop were; "Will we be learning about classes?" and "Will we be working with QT?". In this workshop we will be exploring both of these topics, with practical examples. This workshop has everything you need to take you to the next level in your Python development skills wthin Maya. It's perfect for students of Pyro's previous "Python in Maya" CGWorkshop. although you need not have taken that class to gain value from this one.

Praise for Pyro's "Python in Maya" CGWorkshop:

"Shaun provided students with varying knowledge of python the opportunity to learn and expand their knowledge of core python concepts, but at the same time challenging us to be as creative as possible with assignments. I look forward to courses that Shaun may teach in the near future." student, 2012.
