About Display Options and Smoothness

By using Maya’s display options, you can change the way objects are viewed within the pane. You can view your scene in wireframe, smooth-shaded, flat-shaded, bounding-box, or points mode, and you can change your display options to match your current needs. Bounding-box and points mode, for example, can be used to speed interaction when tumbling around a complex scene. Wireframe mode is handy for selecting components (because you can see the components through the object), and smooth and flat shading can provide a more complete surface view (which makes it easier to model a surface). Each of the display options is useful for specific situations, so switching between them can improve workflow.

Included among the display options are hardware texturing and lighting options, which provide quick feedback when adding texture or lighting to a scene. Most of these settings have associated keyboard shortcuts.
