…As we've seen, Maya's interface is highly customizable.…And all of the changes that you make to…the interface are going to be stored in your User Preferences.…But it goes far beyond that.…Whenever you create something in Maya or use…a tool, You can optionally go into a tool…settings or an options box which will let…you determine how that command or tool will behave.…And all of that information is stored…in your preferences as well.…Sometimes you will need to copy, move, or delete preferences.…
So, I want to show you how to manage the…preferences, so you can leverage Maya's power to your full advantage.…As you can see, I've made some minor adjustments to the interface here.…I've hidden the shelf and I've changed the…background color and the view port and so on.…But I also want to show you that if we make a change to a tool or…command, then that will be stored in the preferences.…I'll just make a sphere.…I'll go to the Create menu and choose Polygon Primitives > Sphere Options.…And I get the Sphere tool settings.…
