My son goes to a just finished 59 million rebuild of a New haven arts high school that has a New Mac Lab and Photoshop. I've let the arts director know about the free Maya PLE software and about training on this site... but to learn mattepainting.. what DVD's in what order.. and any other training suggestions I can pass onto the arts director? Thanks, Peter.
If you're interested in setting up camera projections in Maya then you should check out the gnomon matte painting DVD by Darin Hilton. I found it very helpful with a lot of great info on setting up multi-camera projections.
