What you will learn
In this series of Maya tutorials, we will talk about several concepts and tools that will help you get the most out of your Maya renders. Maya has a number of features that, when used properly, can yield huge gains in render speed and in render quality. Many of these concepts are critically important in order to get proper lighting results in your renders. This series of tutorial will discuss topics like scene scale, and why it's such an important part of your rendering and lighting setup. We'll learn how a linear workflow can be used to achieve much more realistic lighting results, we'll learn the entire process of rendering and compositing with motion vector information to create instantaneous motion-blurring effects, and many additional tools and techniques that will be useful in almost any rendering project that you encounter.
