Integrating CG Glass & Live Action Footage in Maya


In this tutorial we will set up a scene in Maya that allows us to integrate CG elements that will reflect and refract the live action footage using projections, textures and a HDR panorama. It will also cover caustics and breaking up our scene into various render passes for later compositing in Nuke over at Aetuts+.

Once you've completed part one here on Cgtuts+, head over to Aetuts+ to watch part 2:
