The New MASH Dynamics Node in Maya 2018

There are some great new motion graphics features in Maya 2018 including new MASH Nodes, such as MASH Dynamics Node, MASH World Node, and the MASH Placer Node. We’re going to focus on the MASH Dynamics Node for the next couple of weeks.

In Maya 2018 you can apply dynamics to MASH networks or polygon objects to create amazing complex motion graphics quickly and easily. Stack them with the new primitives to create complicated organic configurations and animate them on the fly.
