Save your work

In the last lesson we recommended that you save your work at regular intervals. An example of this is when you have just completed a major task such as constructing the base for the temple. With this strategy, if you ever make a mistake, you can always open the previously saved version of your work and begin from there.

To save your Maya scene

  1. Select File > Save Scene.

    A file browser appears showing the GettingStarted project directory where you can save your scene.

    If you do not see the GettingStarted project directory, you have not yet copied the GettingStarted folder and set it as your Maya project. For more information, see Copying and setting the Maya project.

  2. Within the GettingStarted project directory, ensure that you are saving in the scenes sub-directory.
  3. Type Lesson2Base in the file name text box.
  4. Click Save.
