This blog is dedicated to cutting edge web development and media technology.

Since animation is being used more and more heavily to build highly interactive web 2.0/3.0 interfaces, I thought folks might be interested in a series of videos I am creating for the 3D animation classes I teach at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

The videos are on Vimeo.

They feature Autodesk Maya, which is by far the most popular professional quality 3D modeling, animation, and rendering application.  Each short video focuses on one specific concept and they are very much meant for raw beginners:

As of today, January 29, 2012, there are five of them:

Introduction to the Autodesk Maya Interface.

The 3 Kinds of Modeling Supported by Maya.

The Basic Concepts of Translation, Rotation, and  Scaling.

The Basic Concept of Curved Line Modeling.

An Introduction to Polygon Modeling and Extrusion.

The entire set of videos can be found in my Vimeo account.
