Default Maya FAQs

This thread is for all those Frequently Asked Questions regarding the use of Maya. Please give this a read through if you are a newcomer to Maya and/or 3D, because chances are you will run into at least a few of these before too long.

Note: You may add to this thread in the format of a commonly asked question or troubleshooting issue AND a descriptive and helpful answer to the question or problem. Other posts will be deleted, so if you have a question without an answer, please start your own thread. Thanks for keeping this thread tidy!

Q: When I try to select components, other vertices or edges move with it, and the selection is yellow or has a gradient of yellow, red, and black. What's going on?

A: Chances are you have SOFT SELECT turned on. Hit 'b' to toggle it off. Or open up the selection or move tool options and scroll down to the soft select checkbox.
