Recently I started working with maya for a school project. The primary reason for this is because all my class mates are using 3dmax and im using a mac so this option wassnt availible to me.
I desided to use the Maya 8.5 personal learing edition and learing trough lynda.com video tutorials provided by my school (yay
Although most of the options in the PLE seem to work exacly the same and im not to bothered by the bigass watermarking atm there is a thingy that is bothering me atm.
everytime i open one of the files provided by lynda.com they seem to look different then in their videos. In wireframe they look the same but when i hit my '5key' for Smooth Shading All the things just look either strange or a bit off.. I often find myself needing to click items multiple times to even make them display a little bit of detail..
here are 2 pictures of what it is suppose to look like and what it is looking like at my screen
Thnx in advance for helping me, i rly appriciate it!
