Introduction to Ziva VFX: Volume 2
Soft-Tissue Simulation using Ziva VFX, Maya & Wrap 3D with Madhav Shyam
Following on from Introduction to Ziva VFX: Volume 1 , Madhav Shyam returns with the highly anticipated Volume 2, where he dives deeper into Ziva VFX to complete the build of the Sorceress character. Volume 2 covers Python scripting and shares how to edit zBuilder scripts to help speed up your workflow.
With the character complete, the workshop then focuses on a handful of specialized topics, including leveraging machine learning, alternative simulation techniques, and more extreme anatomy wrapping to help you reuse and modify existing setups.
This workshop is also helpful for more intermediate and advanced Ziva VFX users who are looking to increase the quality of their builds. Madhav uses the Sorceress Supreme model from Marcus Whinney by Marcus Whinney as the base; additionally, this volume utilizes Zeke the Lion from the Ziva VFX store, along with the Bison model from Nicolas Morel.
A number of project files are provided with this workshop to assist with following along with Madhav’s creation process.
