In this video, George shows Maya artists and users how to highlight the new features in the software. When launching Maya, the new features highlights are on by default, but these highlights can be toggled on and off using the preferences window. George takes you on a brief tour of these new features.
- [Voiceover] Whenever a new release of Maya comes out,…you'll want to understand…where the new features are located.…So if we start off Maya for the first time,…you'll notice that it will give you…this what's new highlight settings.…And what it does is it basically highlights in green…any of the new features.…So we can turn this off at start up…and also turn off highlight what's new,…and hit OK.…But I'm actually going to keep highlight what's new on,…and if we want, we can change this…by going into Preferences.…
So I'll go Settings, Preferences, Preferences,…and down here, we can actually hide or show what's new,…and we can even change the highlight color if we want.…I'm going to leave it at green.…So if we take a quick look at this,…you'll see that we have…a lot of new features in this version of Maya.…So we have a whole bunch of new rendering features here,…we've got some IK features here for character setup,…and then we even have new features here in the viewports.…
And then if you pull down the menus,…you'll start to see them…
