Hex-Shield

Technical keywords: Auto-desk Maya, Python 

Description and purpose: 

In an effort to combine my interest in tool development and visual effects - built automated tools in Maya in Python language to make an attractive visual effect 

How I made it: 

Built direct tools using Maya's Script Editor for creating the objects in space and scripting their movement.

Manufactured tools in Maya corresponding to -

  • Ordered Selection and Aimed Constraints

  • Creating run-time user interface for accepting user input

  • Adding Custom Attributes to a scene

  • Creating expressions to drive the value of other objects' attributes 

Added UV shaders and materials for greater effect.
