    Looking for essential books on learning maya

    Hey guys, I am trying to learn maya and am looking for essential resources for learning animation in it. Stuff that can take me from beginner level to intermediate in particular.

    Right now I'm looking to probably buy the "Learning Autodesk Maya" series books, particularly the 2009 foundation and the 2008 animation/modeling books. If anyone has any experience with these books let me know.

    Have you downloaded the demo software? There are a lot of tutorials and help files in the program itself. It is also good to just play.

    Yeah, I'm beyond the 'know what buttons do/camera/etc' stage. Now I need to get into the 'actually doing things' stage.
