Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting preferences, part of Maya 2013 Essential Training: 1 Interface and Organization.
As is the case with any complex piece of software, Maya has preferences that you can set to customize…the way that Maya works.…Now out of the box, Maya is fairly interactive, but if you want you can change things around…to better suit the way that you work.…So we find our preferences under Window > Setting Preferences and under this we have a Preferences dialog box.…So we can go ahead and pull this up, and you can see we have a whole list of preferences.…Now some of the most important ones here are towards the top, they are the Interface ones,…what menu set do we want to use, in this case it's all these different ones here, and this…is actually the same as this menu here.…
But do we want to show the menu Bar, do we want to show the panel tool Bar, so again,…we can turn on and off different interface elements here.…So I can certainly turn on and off that.…We also have a UI Elements option here, and this allows you to turn on a bunch of different options here.…So, for example, we have the Time slider and the Range slider, which have to do with animation.…
