Angry Newbie Problem!

I am a C4d User and now moved to Maya.
I like maya but how can I select only the visible components
and not the components on the backside.
Problem: I want to select some faces and the faces on the other
side are also selected


I miss this function in Maya!

Lightbulb Hot Keys are your friend

Hi there,

ALT + H -> Show Only Selected Faces
CTRL + H -> Hide Only Selected Faces

And a thread about BackFace Culling:
http://forum.simplymaya.com/showthre...ckFace+Culling

Hope these help you out!!
