Preparing for the lessons
  1. 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.
  2. To ensure the lessons work as described, 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 set.
