Summary

This chapter showed you some tips and solutions for problems you'll face as you become more of an expert with Maya:

  • When to expect slow render times Some features inevitably require more time to render. Combine enough of these features with a large scene file, and the result is usually a long render time.

  • Unattended rendering of several jobs, or combining several machines to render one job Batch and network rendering are the solution to slow render times.

  • Marking menus and hotkeys You learned to create your own workflow enhancements in this chapter, without needing to know anything about writing MELscript code.

  • Rendering in layers As powerful as Maya is, you can still imagine worlds larger than what can be comfortably built in a single scene file. Rendering in layers is the answer. You also gain flexibility in changing the look of each layer if necessary.

  • Installing add-ons You can and should browse the available enhancements for Maya and install the ones that sound intriguing.
