In this Maya tutorial, we will explore some of the core rendering tools and features of Maya that every rendering artist needs to be familiar with. This tutorial is designed for users who are just getting started with rendering in Maya, so we will not be focusing heavily on using lights, materials or recipes to give your render a specific look. Instead, our focus will be on helping you build a strong foundational knowledge of rendering in Maya by talking about many of the key tools, features and concepts that every rendering artist in Maya really needs to be familiar with. In this tutorial, we will also learn how to resolve some rendering-related issues that you may encounter, and we will focus very heavily on helping you develop good habits and strong workflow practices that will be extremely beneficial to you as an emerging render artist.
