Damn it, Maya. Just… Damn it.

Welcome, One and All

This blog is a practical guide to avoiding some of the nastiest poo flung by the angry monkey that is Maya.  For those who have not yet encountered these problems, you may think that Maya is simply a 3D computer graphics program that can make some very pretty images.  YOU ARE WRONG.

In the last four years of exhaustive research, I have discovered that Maya is the spawn of Satan himself, born and bred in the fires of eternal torment.  Also, it makes very pretty images.

However, THERE IS HOPE.  Many of these “oh sh*t” moments can be avoided – others can be eliminated altogether.  In this compilation, I will stare down the Beast — and hopefully, we can all be a little happier.

I will also post some random things I find on the internet, tutorials, tools, rants and various other fun stuff.  Enjoy.

This blog is created by Ed Whetstone for the sole use of people with senses of humor, and is not endorsed by UTD, ATEC, Maya, Mental Images, or their affiliates or subsidiaries.  So there.

    Ed! your blog is fantastic!
    Although I didn’t really learn too much new (having worked with Maya quite a while) I wish I had found your blog a long time ago!
    Maya is nasty! And a pain to work with when it comes to rendering complicated scenes. I’m spending hours and hours in troubleshooting right now and your blog was refreshingly funny to learn fun.
