Part: IV Appendixes > Differences in the Control Interface

Differences in the Control Interface

Top menus: Maya has overall modes that determine which menus appear at the top. The first six menus in Maya—File, Edit, Modify, Create, Display, and Window—are always present, but the other menus change depending on your mode: Animation, Modeling, Dynamics, or Rendering. If you have Maya Unlimited, Cloth and Live modes are also available.

Quad menu versus Hotbox: If you hold the spacebar down more than a moment in Maya, the Hotbox appears (see Figure A.1); this workflow speedup device is somewhat like the right-click quad menu introduced in max 4 (see Figure A.2). Advanced Maya users often turn off the menu display and use just the Hotbox, activating the hot zones with a right-click.
