Aug. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- FaiStrada is pleased to announce their new addition to the online Maya 3D training in italian language, immediately available to existing and new customers.

This new section in the online Maya training has been created by Fabio Lanzillotta, an experienced Maya artist, graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bari in Virtual and Theatrical Scenography. Fabio Lanzillotta is an experienced character animator and his core skills are in optical motion capture and Maya rigging. He also holds a State's Institute specialist certificate in textile and interior design.

"I had great fun teaching this project for FaiStrada and want to congratulate my students for sticking to the entire project", said Fabio Lanzillotta about the Maya training at , "I think everybody, regardless of the quality of their final achievement, can be proud of being able to build such a complex model from scratch in Maya 3D. It's not easy, and sometimes it may require a good deal of patience, but patience is the key to success in this field".

The new training, well over five hours long, is the complete modeling, uv texturing and rendering tutorial for a Thompson machine gun. Fabio guides his students from the beginning, shooting the reference weapon and then building a detailed polygonal model in Maya. After modeling, the wooden parts are unwrapped and their UVs are sewed to build an accurate, and distortion free, UV map. In the third and last chapter, several advanced shader trees and lighting setups are analyzed and tested for the final Mental Ray rendering.
