Preparing for the lessons
  1. To ensure the lessons work as described, select the Animation menu set. Unless otherwise noted, the procedures in this chapter assume the Animation menu set is selected.
  2. If you have not already done so, copy the GettingStarted folder from its installation location to your projects directory. Then, set the GettingStarted directory as your Maya project. For more information, see Copying and setting the Maya project.
  3. Make sure that Soft Selection is turned off by opening the Attribute Editor with the Select Tool active and unchecking the box marked Soft Select.
