Read Time: 1 min

This tutorial will focus on creating a cool molecule type object with Maya and finish the project off in After Effects. We will begin by modeling the molecule in maya, then create a shader via the hypershade panel and assign it to the object, and render out a still image. Lastly we will take it into After Effects, and create a camera that drifts and zooms towards the molecule. We will also add a few particles to the scene and comp it all together.
