Maya 2017 MASH Tutorial - Scatter balloons and vertex color in Arnold
In this awesome Maya tutorial, you'll learn how to quickly scatter balloons onto any shape using MASH for Maya 2016.5 onwards. Once we have a quick layout we'll use Arnold 2.1 to set up a quick dome light with an hdri texture that you can download for free from the edge-cgi website.
After lighting is sorted we'll cover how to randomize the colors of the balloons with mash and pass this vertex color over to Arnold using an aiUserDataColor node. Make sure that the export vertex color is checked on the shape node!
