In this tutorial, you will learn how to animate lighting using the MASH toolset and Mesh Lights with the Arnold renderer in Maya 2018 (or 2017). This is one of the classic medical animations we see of neurons firing in the brain. It took me a while to figure this one out so I hope you will find it useful!

*** I am so sorry, part of my voice over cut out about 7:38. It is repeated later on, however, what is was meant to say is that you need to open up this layer, unhide the layer directly under it. and with this selected go to Arnold, Lights, Mesh light. ***

I cannot prioritise creating them as financially, I put my freelance projects first. If you can support me for as little at $1 per video then I can hopefully be able to create more videos like this!
