Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting new scene options, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…There's a pitfall in dealing with the working units in Maya, and…that is when you set up the preferences in the preferences dialog.…That will be reflected when you create…a new scene, except for certain settings, which…are dealt with in a different preferences…window, which is the new scene options window.…And unless you understand this then you will be quite confused and perplexed when…you create new scenes that have different working units than what you've chosen.…
So allow me to demonstrate.…If we go into Window settings preferences, preferences and go into settings let's…say that I want to work in feet so I'll chose linear foot.…Okay, good.…So now, I'm working in linear working units of foot.…And I click Save.…And what I expect to happen is that…Maya will save this preference for the next scene.…And in fact, for almost all of the items in here, that's how it works.…When you click Save, those settings are actually stored in you user preferences.…
Except for these working units, and a couple other little things.…
