I found this really neat tutorial on creating topological art using Maya and XGen on Youtube at the Maya Learning Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHmAXsicpLK2EHMZo5_BtDA)
At first Maya naturally resisted, refusing to do as she was told, saving in different formats than expected, making it impossible for me to make it work. Then after putting the project aside for a couple of days - without any explanation....it just started working.
So anyway this is the first attempt on creating topological art with xgen - would be fun doing something a bit more advanced - maybe animating the camera, but as it is a bit heavy handed I decided to keep it relative simple to begin with.
Comped and music added using After Effects.
