Part: IV Appendixes > Differences in Scene Organization

Differences in Scene Organization

Groups: Maya's groups do not open or close; they simply create a hierarchically higher node that can be animated. In max, this would be analogous to linking objects to a dummy or point object. In Maya, you use the up arrow key to go from selecting a group member to selecting the entire group. You use the up arrow and down arrow keys to navigate any hierarchy.

Wireframe colors: Maya has far fewer wireframe colors than max does, but you can change them easily. Simply select an object and choose Display | Wireframe Color on the menu to get a display of eight color swatches (see Figure A.14). Note that the wireframe color isn't apparent until the object is deselected, just as in max. Instanced objects always have the same wireframe color.
