Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with reference edits, part of Maya Tips and Tricks.
…A really powerful application of referencing is the ability…to store changes to referenced scenes separately from the…scenes themselves. So, in other words, I could make…modeling adjustments to this tablecloth and then store those…adjustments in a separate file, and maybe store multiple…versions of it, and I can swap them in…and out at will. Or maybe I have a…character and I can animate different walk cycles, and…I can store each one of those out as a separate…edit file, and referencing makes all that possible. Here's a scene…in which I've got a couple of objects referenced in. We…can go and take a look at the reference editor. File…> Reference Editor. And we've got a tablecloth and we've also…got the teapot. I'm really focused on the tablecloth right now.…
What I wanna do is make some modeling changes to it,…so I'll select it and I'll right-click and choose Vertex mode and…select a point on here. And I can press the B key to activate soft selection and…I can hold down B in order to change the radius. I just wanna make some adjustments…
