Example text

Some aspects of MEL are briefly considered. We wrap up by using cloth to animate the movement of water. Chapter 12 looks at some techniques for creating materials and placing them on models. Students create a cow and make it look 2D by using a specialized material provided by Maya.

But the four corners of its roof are awfully sharp for something made out of cloth and held up with wood slats.
