Chapter 3. Maya Interaction > Displaying Objects

Displaying Objects

In Chapter 2, you learned how to switch from Wireframe to Shaded mode (hotkeys: 4 and 5) and how to change the detail level of NURBS objects (hotkeys: 1, 2, or 3). Some other display options can help you see your object more clearly or speed up interaction.

If you choose Shading | Shade Options in the panel's menu, you'll find options to display Wireframe on Shaded Objects and X-Ray mode. These options can be helpful when you need special, slower rendering display modes in Shaded mode to help solve a problem. Wireframe on Shaded Objects can help you visualize curvatures better and see the effects of editing an object's shape more clearly. X-Ray mode makes the shaded objects in the 3D view semi-transparent. You can see through all objects without giving up the three-dimensional look of Shaded mode.
