Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Maya Essentials 1: Interface and Organization.
If you are a lynda.com premium subscriber, you'll get the exercise files as a download. Now when you get the exercise files, go ahead and uncompress them and place them on your Desktop just like we have here. Now in this folder, we have several folders, one for each chapter. As we get into Maya, you will realize also that each one of these is a Maya Project. So when you first start a chapter, go ahead and set this folder as your Project and everything should line up properly.
