To ensure the lessons
work as described, do these steps before beginning:
- If you have not already done so, copy
the GettingStarted folder
from its installation location to your projects directory.
Then, set the GettingStarted/Fur directory
as your Maya project. For more information, see
Copying and setting the Maya project in
the Getting Started with Maya guide.
- Select the Rendering menu
set. Unless otherwise noted, the directions in this chapter for
making menu selections assume you’ve already selected the Rendering menu
- If you don’t see a Fur menu,
perform these additional steps:
> Settings/Preferences > Plug-in Manager.
- In the Plug-in Manager, locate
the Fur plug-in (Fur.mll) and turn on the loaded checkbox.
Wait for the check mark to appear in the checkbox, then close the Plug-in
Manager. You can set the Fur plug-in
to auto load so that it automatically
loads each time the Maya application is launched. The Fur menu
will appear to the right of the Paint Effects menu.
