Gnomon School of Visual Effects has announced the launch of Gnomon Online, a Web-based service structured to offer high-quality training in Alias|Wavefront Maya on the Internet. Paid membership will allow viewing of streaming-video tutorials in seven application areas. Gnomon Online membership is $49 per month and gives members access to a growing library of streaming-video tutorials and scene files. The service is going online with an initial three hours and twenty minutes of tutorials. Each month an additional one to two hours of tutorials will be added, keeping the site -- and membership -- dynamic. Scene files will also be added periodically. Tutorials will cover the following application areas: modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering, animating, character and effects. Each tutorial is available in three sizes. Members choose which size they want to view based on resolution and download times. For those interested in trying before they buy, the Website has a sample 12-minute tutorial on inverse kinematics.
