Brent Forrest offers a sneak-peek into two cartoon explosion assets coming for Autodesk Maya.
Technical Director Brent Forrest has shown off what the team at Marza used to create 3D effects in a new video that uses Adobe Animate content and brings it into Maya automatically, making elements look three dimensional.
A couple other videos show how this system works by bringing out an upcoming asset with same 2d look but now created through 3 dimensional graphics.
