Just watching tutorials for Maya, which is supposed to help ease my worry of how difficult this program will be, is making me more nervous. I was searching for videos looking to learn the next step after creating polygons, such as how to form them in exact angles I would like. I saw this video where a guy had created a cat shape so I decided to watch and realized he is teaching people how to animate the cat and he is a senior in high school! So, I am now jealous of his talents. When we get to this stage this video will be very helpful on how to make the points to animate the characters.
Even this video is too complex and he does the modeling too fast for me to understand what he is doing and what he is pressing. It doesn't help he is using an older version of Maya.
