- If you're working with animation,…it's very important that 3ds Max and Maya…be set to the same frame rate.…In Maya, it's done through the Preferences window.…Window, Settings/Preferences, Preferences,…Settings, Working Units.…And Time is set to Film speed, or 24 frames per second.…We could change this to anything we want,…for example, NTSC, 30 frames per second.…When I click Save here, I may only be…saving that preference for the current scene.…
If I want to make sure that I always get…30 frames per second from now on,…then I need to go into the File menu…and choose New Scene Options.…And if "Do not reset working units" is on,…then the Preferences dialog affects…the current scene and all future scenes.…If this is off, then the Preferences dialog…only affects the current scene.…Okay, once again, I want to leave that on, click Close.…And I'm actually going to go back…into Window, Settings/Preferences, Preferences,…back into Settings, and change it back…to 24, because I want to also show you how…to change it in 3ds Max, and 3ds Max is defaulted…
