A great course by an Industry Veteran. David`s pace is perfect for everybody to understand and follow along. This course covers all the aspects of Autodesk Maya.

So much information, clean, smart files to practice with..and the teaching doesn't dumb it down or make it too scary.

Hit a wall following another tutorial and was losing faith in learning Maya. I tried this one and understood every video. I love how they're set to be 10 mins long so you can easily go back and watch again a certain section. The instructor is also very pleasant and doesn't just rush through everything.

I've taken a few courses from David Bittorf & as with the others, he does a great job in making me understand how these tools & methods can be used in my own projects & not just the stuff we do in this course. An excellent & highly recommended course.

I love how detailed it is.. and there was a project-based lesson with a logo smoking out.. it's different from the other maya courses imo
