Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the Channel Box , part of Maya Essentials 1: Interface and Organization.
There are other ways to manipulate objects in the scene and one of them is to use the Channel Box.…Now the Channel Box is usually on the right side of the screen here, we have two buttons…here, one is for the Attribute Editor, the other is for the Channel Box.…When I have the Channel Box open, you can see I've got it here, and typically a lot…of people use both here, so we have both the Channel Box and the Attribute Editor selected,…and then that just gives you two tabs along the right side here.…I want to make sure I have my Channel Box open, and let's go ahead and select my object.…
And when I do that, you'll notice here we've got the name of the object, but we also have…Translation, Rotation and Scale values.…If I want I can manipulate the object as normal, so if I hit W to go into Move mode, I can…certainly move my object however I want, and notice how the Translation values here are…changing interactively as I move my object.…I can just hit Ctrl+Z to Undo those if I want.…
And if I want I can type in the values myself.…
