    Here is a basic tutorial on working between Mudbox and Maya. Even though I use Zbrush as my main sculpting package. I am aware that Mudbox is more readily available to students as it comes with the Autodesk Student packs. I know a lot of students visit my blog so I wanted to try and cater for all. I will be doing a Zbrush one soon as well.

          *NOTE* Refractions should be set to 1 for this effect to work. I've only realised that I accidentally cut that point out of the video. Many apologies. This quick tutorial covers how to create a realistic fluid effect using an adjusted Ncloth Preset in Maya. Very handy for creating quick props for characters without having to spend time doing a fluid sim.

              *IMPORTANT* Please note that in order for the nParticles to playback or render properly, an nCache will need to be made. Go to nCache>Create new nCache before playing back or rendering. Thanks.P. This tutorial will cover how to use a piece of geometry to shape Nparticles and how to convert those particles into polygon objects, edit them and then rig them in a standard way using a Wrap Deformer.
