    One of the following is not a Lambert material attribute:

    • A.

      Color

    • B.

      Transparency

    • C.

      Diffuse

    • D.

      Reflectivity

    Correct Answer
    D. Reflectivity
    Explanation
    Reflectivity is not a Lambert material attribute because Lambert materials are diffuse, meaning they scatter light in all directions equally. Reflectivity, on the other hand, refers to the ability of a material to reflect light in a specific direction, which is not a characteristic of Lambert materials. Lambert materials do not have a specular component, meaning they do not reflect light in a concentrated manner like reflective materials do. Therefore, reflectivity is not a property of Lambert materials.

    We can use one of the following commands in NURBS modeling to create different NURBS surfaces:

    • A.

      Loft

    • B.

      Extrude

    • C.

      Revolve

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all three commands (Loft, Extrude, and Revolve) can be used in NURBS modeling to create different NURBS surfaces. The Loft command creates a surface by blending between multiple cross-section curves, the Extrude command creates a surface by extending a curve along a path, and the Revolve command creates a surface by rotating a curve around an axis. Therefore, all of these commands can be used to create different types of NURBS surfaces.

    Explanation
    In Maya, the Bend, Sine, and Wave deformers are all examples of non-linear deformers that can be applied to objects in order to create complex and dynamic transformations. However, Lens flare is not a deformer in Maya. It is a visual effect that simulates the appearance of light scattering within a camera lens. Therefore, Lens flare does not have any deformation capabilities and is not considered a non-linear deformer in Maya.

    When you select your particles in object mode you can:

    • A.

      Directly controlling each particle as you like right from the active view panel

    • B.

      Change the position of the particle object as a whole (all of the particles at once)

    • C.

      Change the color of any individual particle, by selecting it.

    • D.

      Animate each particle using key framing, then editing the animation curves in the hypergraph.

    Correct Answer
    B. Change the position of the particle object as a whole (all of the particles at once)
    Explanation
    In object mode, you have the ability to change the position of the particle object as a whole, affecting all of the particles at once. This means that any adjustments made to the object's position will be applied to all the particles simultaneously, allowing for easy and efficient editing of their overall placement.

    Which of the following dynamic component gives more quality and realism?

    • A.

      Fluids

    • B.

      Particles

    • C.

      Fluids and Particles are similar

    • D.

      NURBS

    Correct Answer
    A. Fluids
    Explanation
    Fluids are considered to give more quality and realism as compared to particles and NURBS. Fluid simulations can accurately depict the behavior of liquids, gases, and other fluid-like substances, creating realistic effects such as water splashes, smoke, fire, and explosions. Fluid simulations take into account factors like viscosity, surface tension, and turbulence, resulting in more lifelike and detailed animations. On the other hand, particles are more commonly used for simulating individual particles like dust, debris, or sparks, while NURBS are used for creating smooth and curved surfaces. Therefore, fluids are the preferred dynamic component for achieving high-quality and realistic effects in animations.

     When a VFX artist set  particle in a scene to collide  geometry , the resilience attribute enables the artist to control : 

    • A.

      Energy of particles after collision

    • B.

      Speed of particles after collision

    • C.

      Bounciness of particles after collision

    • D.

      Direction of particles after collisions

    Correct Answer
    C. Bounciness of particles after collision
    Explanation
    The resilience attribute in VFX allows the artist to control the bounciness of particles after collision. This means that the artist can determine how much the particles will bounce off the geometry they collide with. By adjusting the resilience attribute, the artist can make the particles either bounce back with a high amount of energy or absorb the impact and have a lower bounce. This gives the artist control over the behavior and physics of the particles in the scene.

    When you create a curve in Maya and view it's control vertices the second vertex will have the following shape

    • A.

      Dot shape

    • B.

      Square shape

    • C.

      U shape

    • D.

      Nothing

    Correct Answer
    C. U shape
    Explanation
    When you create a curve in Maya and view its control vertices, the second vertex will have a U shape. This means that the control vertex will have two straight lines connected at one end, forming a U-like shape. This shape is commonly used in Maya to indicate the direction and curvature of the curve. The U shape helps in manipulating and adjusting the curve by providing control points at specific locations.

    When importing an image sequence in After Effects:

    • A.

      One should import each and every image alone

    • B.

      One can import the sequence by selecting only the first image

    • C.

      One should import each image alone, then specify they are a sequence.

    • D.

      An image sequence cannot be imported in After Effects

    Correct Answer
    B. One can import the sequence by selecting only the first image
    Explanation
    When importing an image sequence in After Effects, one can import the sequence by selecting only the first image. After Effects will automatically recognize the sequence and import all the subsequent images as a sequence. This saves time and effort compared to importing each and every image alone or specifying that they are a sequence individually.

    To simulate of the wake of moving objects , the best field to use  for that is :

    • A.

      Gravity Field

    • B.

      Turbulence Field

    • C.

      Radial Field

    • D.

      Air Field

    Correct Answer
    D. Air Field
    Explanation
    The best field to use for simulating the wake of moving objects is the Air Field. This is because the Air Field can mimic the effects of air resistance and turbulence, which are important factors in creating a realistic wake simulation. The Gravity Field would only simulate the effects of gravity and would not capture the complex interactions between the moving object and the surrounding air. The Turbulence Field and Radial Field may have some limited use in creating certain aspects of the wake, but they would not provide a comprehensive simulation like the Air Field.

    To remove the highlight from a Blinn material you should do the following inside the light source attributes:

    • A.

      Check the (Remove Highlight) check box

    • B.

      Uncheck the (Emit Diffuse) check box

    • C.

    • D.

      Put the Specular Roll Off attribute to zero (0)

    Correct Answer
    C. Uncheck the (Emit Specular) check box
    Explanation
    Unchecking the (Emit Specular) checkbox inside the light source attributes will remove the highlight from a Blinn material. This is because the specular component of the material's reflection is responsible for creating highlights. By unchecking the (Emit Specular) checkbox, the light source will no longer contribute to the specular reflection of the material, resulting in the removal of the highlight.

    • A.

      Changing the color of the glass material

    • B.

      Increasing the intensity of the light source

    • C.

      Increasing the number of refraction rays in the render settings

    • D.

      Increasing the number of light and shadow rays in the render settings

    Correct Answer
    C. Increasing the number of refraction rays in the render settings
    Explanation
    Increasing the number of refraction rays in the render settings can help to solve the black glass problem in rendering. The black glass problem occurs when the glass material is not properly refracting light, resulting in a black appearance. By increasing the number of refraction rays, more accurate calculations can be made to simulate the way light interacts with the glass material, leading to a more realistic and transparent appearance. This solution focuses specifically on addressing the issue with the glass material and improving its rendering.
