I really love Maya's new MASH feature that came with one of the 2016 updates, I'm a fan of generally trippy animation and MASH really gives me a way to make them quickly and prototype things that I'd otherwise never be able to do in such a small amount of time. I've never spent more than a day on a MASH animation (previous ones can be found on my Vimeo page and in the "animation" section of my site), I'd like to spend a lot more time with it, I've only had time to just mess around here and here so far, but at some point, Id love to a short film of sorts only using MASH..
Today I decided to see what my new laptop could handle by messing around with the "flight" node in MASH. I also had to learn how to work with Arnold renderer instead of Mental Ray, which I really like so far, it didn't take much to get a look I liked. I decided I wanted to try to make a swarm of cubes attack a sphere, so here's what I came up with. I want to make some tweaks to it before I do a nice HD render, but since I didn't post yesterday, I figured I'd at least post what I managed to do in about 4 hours (including rendering)
Well, that's all I've got for now, stay tuned for more soon. If you liked this, click here to see a few more.
