Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing object history, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Now, finally I want to talk a little…bit about object history and managing object history.…Now, as you start to build things, you're going to start…doing operations to your polygonal models or your NURBS models, or whatever.…And you're going to start building up a history of those objects.…So for example this coffee cup, we did quite a few things to…it, in order to get it into the shape that it is now.…And if we go into our channel box, you'll see…that we've got a very long list of things that happened.…
We started with a polycylinder, we extruded some faces,…we tweaked some geometry, in other words, we moved it.…We did another extrude, we deleted some components, in other words, we deleted the…faces to create that bridge, and here's the bridge itself.…And then we did a couple of bevels and then we smoothed the whole thing.…And all of that together makes up this particular model.…But each one of these is actually live, I can actually go…in to any one of these and I can say unsmooth it.…
I can change the bevel of, say the bottom, or if…
