This video demonstrates the new Match Transformations feature in Maya 2016 Extension 2. This new feature is used to align multiple objects in 3D space. Objects can be aligned by position, by rotation, and by scale or all three. George shows some practical applications for this new Maya feature.
- [Voiceover] When working with objects in Maya,…you may want to match the transformations…so that objects align with each other.…This new version of Maya has a number of tools…that allow you to do that.…Now we can find that under Modify Match Transformations.…Then notice how it's close to Reset…and Freeze Transformations,…and this is really just an extension of that concept.…So if we go into Match Transformations,…notice how we have a number of menu options.…I'm gonna go ahead and click on this dotted line…to tear that off so we can just play with this new menu.…
So, we have a couple of chairs here,…and notice how each one of them…is in a slightly different orientation,…and one of them is a little bit bigger.…So we can use Match Transformations…to align these.…Now how this works is that you can select…as many objects as you want,…and the last object selected…will have its transforms matched to all the others.…So, let's go ahead and start with rotation.…So I'm gonna go ahead and select this object,…Shift select this object,…
