Another handy new feature in Maya 2009 is called Drag Select and this gives…you just a whole new way of selecting components within an object.…So for example, if I took this face, if I wanted to select a lot of polygons--…let's go ahead into face. If I want to select a lot of faces, I could just left…click and drag and select a bunch of faces.…But this really isn't as accurate as I want. Now, I could use a Lasso Select,…but I think Drag Select is actually even more accurate than that. Let me go…ahead and unselect here.…
To turn on Drag Select, all I have to do is go Ctrl+Shift and right-click over…the object and then under Select, all I have to do is just go up to here and…just go Drag Select.…Now, left-click and drag, selects, which is kind of cool. You can see how it's…very easy to paint out your selection. This makes it much, much easier to…select fine areas or kind of complicated areas within a model.…Now, one of the things with Drag Select is that you can turn it on to select…opposite faces or not.…
