well, put it to you this way:

It is "the industry standard" in 3D Modeling and Animation....

Guess you can make your own conclusions from there.

Sky's the limit with Maya my friend.

There are also so many plugins and scripts that let you make an unbelievable world!

If you have a good rendering plugin and good graphics output, you'll be amazed.

Even with the standards its very cool.

No pbllm


You can certainly learn self taught,..i did. I wanted to go college and all that but didnt have the finances, so i thought 'hell' i'll teach myself.

Anything you want to know, ask, im happy to help. Or better still come here.


For scripting, you really should learn the basics first before you starting learning MEL language. But here is a link anyway.

www.Highend3Dcom is an awesome site. It has scripts, plugins and allsorts of downloads.


One of the best places to go for tutorials is www.leanringmaya.com. It has links to just about anything you need.

Last but not least, check out my site www.pixalbeat.com

Something i did, to help other noobs like myself. Understanding Maya is quite difficult, so i tried to post noob tutorials.

any other Q's feel free to email me on pixalbeat_info@btinternet.com

The modeling tools in maya 6 to 7 are pretty much the same so theres really no differences there at all.

Without seeing what your screen looks like, I can only guess. Does the panel still say persp at the bottom, or does it say something else like top, side, front?

If it no longer says pesp, you may find this will help you

Yeah not really sure what your porblem is, could you post a picture of the problem?

Could be what enhzflep said and it's just going to the persp window.

for the rotate thing, if you mean in your work view, press + a few times.

However if you mean the control panel tyr this;

Display > UI Elements > Status Line
