Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

strange maya problem

When ever I try to go from the 4 view port screen to the large single view of either of the 4 ports all the objects in my window dissapear, and they wont reapear till i create a new object in the scene. Anyone know what would cause this?

sounds like a video card issue. Instead of creating a new object, have you tried clicking around to select and deselect an already existing object?

I had to roll back my driver to 41.09 nvidia. I had a similar problem happening.

I sort of found a temporary solution. I cant explain why it works but it works on my computer.

I replaced the Top view port with the Hypershade port

and for some reason it solves the problem. But I hope Nvidia puts out new drivers soon that work propperly

I never had problems with my 9700 pro, not to say it's a better card but not one problem with Maya or video.

I agree with R-Tillery about ATI, but i also never had any problem with Maya on my MSI GF4 whichever the version of the drivers (original MSI drivers or the latest Detonator). I even managed to boost my GF4 to produce much better antialiasing ,texture quality... in viewports using some tools found on the net. I personaly didn't like it that way because of the performance drop, but those tools have many options and you might find an answer for your problems there. RivaTuner, for instance, has many options for both nVidia and ATI video cards.
