How Maya Adds Sequence Maps

How Maya adds sequence maps, when the camera is projected, the projected video is converted to a sequence map. Next, I will talk about how Maya adds sequence maps and their points of attention.
01. Identify the texture map

Go to the Material Editor and give a texture file "masterLayer.0001.exr" file on the Color.

Here, why not identify the sequence map.

(Note: The Property Editor window in the Maya Hypershade is incomplete.)

Two solutions:

The first method: display the property editor, check Use Image Sequence. Identify the sequence map.

The second method: in the Direct Property Editor window, change "masterLayer.0001.exr" to "masterLayer.<f>.exr" (in English input mode)

Note: If your sequence format is:

"masterLayer.1.exr;masterLayer.2.exr;......;masterLayer.10.exr;" This mode, you can use the second method directly. Checking the “Use Image Sequence” option is still not recognized.

  1. Window display mode

After the map is identified, pressing the 6 buttons in the window still does not display.

Because Maya displays the window, they clicked on the Maya default material display. (use default material)

Solution: Remove the default material display mode and press the 6 key.


Making A Robots of League of Legends with Maya and Houdini
Making A Robots of League of Legends with Maya and Houdini
The idea of this robot comes from the game League of Legends, using software such as Maya, ZBrush, Substance Painter, Houdini. 1.Reference I had the idea of making this robot after I saw a reference picture as below. 2.Maya I made the approximate shape of the model in Maya, especially the part of the body structure. Although there is no detail, I try to construct the model. Now importing ZBrush adjustments, this production process does not use ZBrush's hard surface, but adjusts the large structure of the large model inside, without adding detail adjustments. After ZBrush was adjusted, it was imported into Maya again, mainly to adjust the details of the model again. In particular, the parts of these edge details need to be adjusted to the position of the wire. 3.UV UV production is very simple, I used the unfold automatic expansion of the UV function, it is very useful in terms of UV extension. 4.Substance Painter After splitting the UV, make a material using Substance Painter. The material of the Apple robot is very simple, mostly metal and luminescent materials. I made a texture using the basic material of Substance Painter. 5.Pose Exporting textures in Maya textures, I made simple settings, Skinning, and Paint Skin Weights in Maya. Because you don't need to do role dynamics, the above steps are as simple as you can. 6.Rendering After the model is finished, I chose to use Houdini for rendering. The material of Houdini is very similar to the PBR material of Substance Painter. Instead of using the Houdini default lighting material, I used light in lighting and created an environment map. Mantra is used for realistic rendering. The material of the robot's light-emitting part uses the glow node that Houdini comes with, but slowly adjust to the desired effect. The final rendering.
The Usage of Maya 2018 Attribute Spread Sheet
The Usage of Maya 2018 Attribute Spread Sheet
For example, I want to make a layer selection of the object's Primary Visibility property. Step 1: Select the object you want to make the layer selection and open Maya's Attribute Spread Sheet tool. Step 2: Select the Primary Visibility property in the Attribute Spread Sheet. Step 3: Click Layer - Create Override for Selected in the upper menu bar. Step 4: Change on to 0 (off). Step 5: Check the Primary Visibility under the Object Properties and you will find that it made the layer selection automatically. However, cloud rendering want to note that, in fact, the previous version of this feature is also available, but the Maya automatically created the layer selection in the previous version, and now you need to manually click it.)
How To Quickly Create An Object Id For Arnold For Maya
How To Quickly Create An Object Id For Arnold For Maya
To create Arnold's object ID in Maya, you need to assign the material ball separately. If you consider the Displacement, we need to manually connect the displacement to the SG node of the ID’s material ball. Here's how to quickly assign an object ID. 1. Switch the Arnold Translator property under the Arnold menu in the Object Attribute to Mesh Light. 2.Change color in R, G, B value you need. Exposure changed to 20, considering the brightness of self-illumination, you can increase it. Check Light Visible Remove the Cast Shadows’ hook (do not let it produce shadow) Change the parameters such as Diffuse, Specular, sss, Indirect, and Volume to 0. Everyone knows that this is the self-illuminating property of the object, so first we have to let the object show its intrinsic color, all need to check Light Visible. Secondly, since it is self-illuminating, it will definitely affect the surrounding environment, so we need to turn off the self-illuminating Diffuse, Specular, sss, Indirect, Volume and other attributes, while not letting it produce shadows, remove the Cast Shadows hook. And this method also fully considers the displacement, Normal and Bump. (This method may not be used in the new version of Arnold and layering with Render Setup. The new version of Aronld has a crypto method for distinguishing IDs.)
