Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing scene size, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…As you build up scenes in MAYA, sometimes they…can get cluttered with a lot of unnecessary nodes.…And this can be a performance issue, or it…could result in a large usage of disk space.…And there's a handy command which will allow you…to clear out a lot of the unnecessary stuff.…And make your scenes lighter and perform better.…It's called, Optimize Scene Size.…I'll show you a very simple demonstration…of it using just materials.…But it applies to all sorts of different node types.…
I've got a simple plane here with Lambert material…applied to it with a fractal map or pattern applied.…And let's open up the Hyper shade.…Go to Window>Rendering Editors>Hyper Shade.…And you'll see that Lambert fractal is there.…And we also see something called Blinn checker.…And just to demonstrate the process, I'm going to…make a duplicate of the Lambert fractal shading network.…I'll select it And then in the Hyper Shade menu go to Edit>Duplicate>Shading Network.…
Which creates another one now which is called Lambert fractal one and as we see…
