Autodesk has posted its product demos and presentations from Siggraph 2011 online, including four of its masterclasses.
The sessions focus primarily on animation, with classes covering creating a next-gen head model and animating it in 3ds Max; using HumanIK and Softimage’s Face Robot; and live animation binding in Maya. There is a separate session on visual effects in 3ds Max.
