Over the years, Jana Germano compiled extensive workbooks while teaching co-workers Maya. These were exceptionally readable and well-organized – quickly and efficiently conveying the workflows and tips that were needed. When a colleague said “Wow, you have a book here,” Jana realized she could create the book that she wished she’d had when she was learning Maya.
Jana Germano has worked in film and multi-media since 2006. She has written for numerous film trade publications and has an M.F.A. in Film and Electronic Media. Currently working as a Maya digital artist and generalist, you can see some of her 3D work at www.janagermano.com.
While Autodesk® Maya® is a technically complex 3D application, learning it doesn't have to be! There are lots of Maya tutorials out there but Simplifying Maya is the only user-friendly training guide on the market that breaks down and demystifies the many parts of this massive program in an all-in-one-resource.
