Therefore, we will pursue both of these goals: learning the conceptual process of building an animated project with Maya, as well as becoming comfortable with its interface. A Warning: The Maya Interface Can Be Intimidating, Don’t Be Dispirited Autodesk Maya is a true mega-app. The menu system of Maya dwarfs the famously inscrutable interface of Adobe Photoshop in its size and complexity. So, if you have no experience with 3D modeling and animation applications, Maya can be intimidating at first.

We differentiate between these two so that we can manipulate 3D objects independently of where they are in the global space. The object space has an origin (0, 0, 0) associated with that object. It might be easy enough to guess where the origin is when the object is a cube or a sphere. But if an object is heavily morphed, it can become difficult to guess where Maya might be placing the origin. There is a third (x, y, z) space assigned to each object. This is called local space, and it allows us to put objects in hierarchies and to use these hierarchies to control the movement of multiple, related objects.

To the instructor: I have often stepped through these tutorials with my students in class. I teach in a laboratory setting where every student has a computer running Maya right in front of them. Students should be encouraged to install the free version of Maya and bring their machines to class. The top-down coverage of major topics presented in Chapter 16 should give the instructor all that is needed to engineer a classroom experience that is a solid blend of example-driven and conceptual material.
