Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Making multi-component selections, part of Maya 2009 New Features.
Another handy little feature in Maya 2009 is the addition of a Multicomponent…Select mode. Now, let me show you what that is.…I have this model selected and let's just go ahead and zoom in. If I want to…do some modeling I would right click over that and select the face, an edge, or…a vertex and in previous versions of Maya I would have to them one at a time.…But we don't have to do that anymore. We can go to just this Multi mode here,…and this gives us any one of these types of components.…
So for example, if I put my cursor over here, I could select a face, an edge,…or a vertex, or any combination of those. So if I hold down my Shift key I…could select vertices, edges, faces, really anything I want.…Now, this is really handy for those times when you do need to select more than…one component, such as well, Wedge Faces is one example. You need to select an…edge and then you also need to select the face.…So for example, if I go here, select this edge and then Shift-Select that face,…I can just go into my Polygonal tools and just go Wedge Face and you can see…
