I didn't know what it was at first glance, but I assumed that it was just a screen-capture, then photo-shopped over with to help pass a point in animating. I guess I was wrong. What is it exactly?

to be honest with you that looks like the synaptic view from xsi. I'm sure you could make one for maya but I've never seen one implmented before...

Thanks for all the great replies guys,

one quick question: does the maya browser support flash? because that makes the possibilities endless if it does.
