1. In Paint Effects, the application of paint to form tubes along the stroke path. 2. In dynamics, a render type that displays particles as tubes. Tubes appear only in software-rendered images.
Industry:Software
In dynamics, a render type that displays a texture image or image sequence at each particle. At any given particle, the texture image or image sequence displayed can be identical to or different from those at other particles. Depending on the type of texture image used, sprites can be used to create effects such as smoke, clouds, fog, or stars. A sprite appears as a small rectangle until a texture image is mapped to it. The image faces the camera directly regardless of the camera’s position or orientation.

In general, an area that is totally or partially obscured from light by an object. In Maya, an individual light source can produce no shadows (the default), depth map shadows or raytraced shadows. You can combine depth map shadow casting lights and raytraced shadow casting lights in a scene. Adjusting the attributes of depth map shadows or raytraced shadows can simulate shadows from many different types of real-world light sources and objects. Depth map shadows and raytraced shadows produce similar results, though depth map shadows usually take less time to render. Generally, choose depth map shadows unless they cannot accomplish your visual goal.

1) In Maya’s nonlinear character animation editing, an animation segment that can be edited nonlinearly using the Trax Editor. 2) In audio, a segment of sound. 3) In video editing, a continuous series of images that can be edited as a distinct segment.
Industry:Software
A way to mark a view for future use, allowing you to keep a variety of camera views for a scene. Maya has four predefined bookmarks: Perspective, Front, Top, and Side. You can change the view in any of these predefined bookmarks, and create additional bookmarks of your own.
Industry:Software
The process of combining two or more images to form a new image. In video, compositing is the process of combining two or more video events to form a new video sequence. Often an alpha channel is used to determine how the video is mixed.
Industry:Software
In animation, a curve that controls the motion of an object. Also known as curve deformation.
Industry:Software
An image that modifies surface detail.
Industry:Software
