Maya’s ability to convert 3D Paint Effects to polygonal objects is helpful to create content for interactive environments. This 3d tutorial requires Maya 5.0 and up. You can control the strokes’ shape, color, density, while painting on the horizontal grid plane of the perspective view or directly on other 3D objects.
