The Spach-Alspaugh House and Environment series is now complete in five volumes. It covers the entire pipeline of creating animated and textured exterior shots, starting with the modeling of the house and finishing off with the final composite. This is the most in-depth project we've ever taken on at SimplyMaya.

A clever script to keep in mind if you want to make bubbling liquids in Maya, that not only lets bubbles interact but also opens up other rendering options by replacing nParticles with geometry.
