Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling tools: Polygons, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Narrator] So I want to take a few minutes to look at…the primary modeling tools found in Maya.…Now this will not be a full exploratory video…just on all of the modeling tools inside of Maya,…but I did want to go over what the basic tools are…that I use primarily when modeling either polygons…or NURBs.…So the first thing I'm going to do is come over to the right…and choose the modeling toolkit.…This is actually a place that has almost all…of the tools that you'll need and Maya has them in one…nice, neat little area.…
Now for my work view I typically like to drag this tab off…and put it right beside my channel box…in my attribute editor so that I still have access…to getting to specific channels and to my display layers…and having access to my modeling toolkit.…So the first tools that I want to talk about is the difference…between smoothing and sub-dividing and actually dividing…your object.…I have two cubes here on screen and I'm going to select…the first and just choose add divisions.…
When you choose this you'll get a little pop-up window…
