Maya, is a high-end 3D computer graphics and 3D modeling software package originally developed by Alias Systems Corporation, but now owned by Autodesk as part of the Media and Entertainment division. Maya is a powerful, 3-D modeling, texturing, and rendering application, with all of the tools needed to do nearly every type of animation imaginable, from simulations of real-world physics to character animation with a wide spectrum of emotive expressions. There are not many tutorials available online for Maya users so I decided to make a short but useful round up of tutorials for Maya users. So, here is a best of the best showcase of Maya tutorials available around for your inspiration. I hope these tutorials will be helpful for people who wants to learn Maya and act as a source of inspiration.
