Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the Outliner , part of Maya Essentials 1: Interface and Organization.
When you work with multiple objects in the scene, a lot of times you will want to see…a list of everything that's in the scene.…You know, clicking on one object and seeing its name is not the same as seeing a list…of everything in the scene.…So we can do this by using what's called the Outliner.…So we go into Window > Outliner and an Outliner window should pop up.…We can also use this as a panel within a viewport.…But let's just go ahead and keep this as a floating window.…I am going to go ahead and just move my objects over, so we can see the scene a little bit better.…
And you'll notice here that we have every object in the scene.…So in this case I have Chair_01, 02, 03, I also have the Bowl in the scene, oranges, and so on.…So this window allows us to select and manipulate objects in the scene.…So if I want to select multiple objects, it's very similar to selecting from a list in any operating system.…So if I hold down the Shift key, I can select all of these.…If I just click on one, I'll select that one.…
