Maya Monday: Mastering MASH’s Color Node
MASH, which we’ve featured a few times on Maya Monday, is an extension that has become the 3D motion graphics toolset for Maya. From my experience in After Effects, it reminds me of things you can do with Video Copilot Element 3D and Rowbyte Plexus. Today we’re focusing on the Color Node, which is automatically added when you add MASH to your network.
First, before we dive deeper and if it's new to you, check out an introduction and overview for MASH. There's a great video from Swordfish about how they use MASH and Maya as well as some examples and tutorials.
- Maya Monday: Maya for Motion Graphics – The full webinar for Maya for Motion Graphics is online. Taught by Stephen Roselle, Sr. Technical Specialist for Autodesk for Autodesk Media and Entertainment. This is a super useful tutorial for those of you who are After Effects users and are new to Maya.
- Maya Monday: Maya Live Link for After Effects – As a career-long After Effects user, a good integration with After Effects is something I find to be extremely important. In Maya 2017, Autodesk introduced the Adobe After Effects Live Link.
