Default Last question (i think), sorry.

Hey, im a dark kinda person and i prefer working with dark layouts. Is there any way to customise the "skin" of the maya layout so that it is based on blacks? Thanks.

If you want to change the background colour, go to window>Settings/Preferences>colors. To change the default object color, change the lambert1 color in hypershade.

Yea, actaully mine is set to black background and green grid

How to change colors in Maya
by Josh LaRoe

Ok so you want to know how to change your colors in maya do you? Ok so first we will change the colors of the background and grid to make them contrast, so you can still see the grid when modeling, which will help if they are form totaly different sides of the spectrum [ie=black/green].

Open: Windows>Prefrences>Colors

Here is where the items that you may want to change:

3D Views
background

User defined
Not really sure what these change

Ghosts
Is if you turn ghosting on in the display menu

HUD
Is the heads up display

Animation
The colors for animation tools.

Animation Editors
Editors in the animation menu

Multilister
Changes the colors in the multilister

Render view
Changes the colors in the render view

Hypershade/Hypergraph
Changes the colors in the hypershade/hypergraph.

Outliner
Changes the outliner colors.

Trax Editor
Changes the colors in the Trax Editor


To change the color of the grid go to:

Display>Grid [] option box. This is where you can change the colors for that along with all of the atributes associated with the grid. Let me know if you need any help.

Hope this helps...
