Chapter 2. Modeling Kila > Getting Started in Maya

Getting Started in Maya

We are now ready to load Maya and prepare it so we can begin modeling. But first let’s have a look at Maya itself. In case you don’t have Maya, you’ll find Maya’s Personal Learning Edition on the CD.

Maya’s Learning Movies and Tutorials

When you start Maya for the first time, you will be presented with the Learning Movies window seen in Figure 2.5. These one-minute movies cover some of the very basic elements in Maya, from moving and manipulating objects, to simple keyframe animation.

FIGURE 2.5 Maya’s helpful Learning Movies take only a minute each.

I recommend that you watch these movies before you proceed in this chapter. If you have already skipped past the Learning Movies window, you can reopen it by going to Help > Learning Movies.
