How to Cheat in Maya 2010: Tools and Techniques for the Maya Animator


I highly recommend this book by Eric Luhta to every animator starting out in this field. There are nice little tips for seasoned animators as well. What's really great is that this is purely about animation in Maya. It's not a Maya book that covers the software and has one little chapter about animation, it's an animator's workflow in book form, covering everything you can imagine that has to do with animation in Maya. So go get it!

I second the recommendation. I don't own this book, but I spent a while looking through it at my local Borders and was really impressed. I wish I had this book in school. I contains much of the knowledge I've gained in the workplace; so you can benefit from it NOW and spend your first few working years learning things ahead of the curve.

I just got this book last week based on someone's twitter feed suggestion. And like Tim said, I wish I had this book in school too. Finally a Maya book for animators!

Funny I just saw this and went and judged the book by the cover (I didn't buy it). But if you're plugging it, I'll pick it up and eat my words later.

I finished this book a little while back and I agree...it's fantastic. I also wish I had this book when I first started out as it really does contain many great tips and workflows that do get used in the real world.
