Chapter 1. Maya Basics > Maya’s Interface

Maya’s Interface

The Maya interface can appear daunting at first glance, but it’s actually very organized and easy to get around once you’re familiar with it (Figure 1.8). Along the top of the Maya interface is the main menu bar, which contains all the major Maya commands. Because Maya contains more menus than can fit in a window, you can’t view all of them simultaneously in the menu bar. For this reason, Maya’s menus are grouped into menu sets, arranged by tasks, which can be accessed from the menu at the far left of the status line.

Figure 1.8. This is the Maya interface as it appears by default. Many of the elements seen here can be hidden or customized to suit the task at hand.
