no f8 action, joint orientation-option question
Ive made a what i hope is a simple waddleing duck
following the low poly man rigging guide part 1
1/4 of the way though he says you need to correct the root node orientation..
he selects the node goes to display local rotation axies
he then F8's i though f8 was some kinda deselect and ive never used it as my f8 only siwtches to a blue screen with a cog symbol and does nothing else..
any how the tutorial then goes to turn all objects on, with the video this brings up a little purple box its seems so you can select and rotate
ive no such purple box.. where am i going
Im maya 7 with the latest update using a windows pc..
-----------I need to learn maya quickly!
