Yeti Feather Tutorial

In this series of videos I will be talking about and setting up a feathery wing using Peregrine Labs Yeti together with Autodesk Maya and Solid Angle Arnold.

The focus in this video series is to set up a wing with feathers that can be animated along with the wing. I will be showing how to set up a simple wing rig which will then drive the feather instances upon rendertime.

You will also get extra videos covering the provided scripts, instancing and of course the installation of Yeti and setup of Arnold renderer.

This tutorial series is only using Arnold renderengine to a minimum, and users of V-Ray and RenderMan can still use this tutorial.

If you are a beginner to mid-level or if you enjoyed my other tutorials and would like to know how to approach setting up a feathery wing, then these videos are for you!
