In this lesson, you render
a scene we’ve created for your use.
- Make sure you’ve done the steps in
Preparing for the lessons.
- Open the scene file named apple.mb.
This file can be found
in the GettingStarted directory
that you set as your Maya project:
The scene contains an
apple sitting on a plane, with another plane as the background.
A camera in the scene is animated to revolve around the apple at
varying distances. (As an alternative to using the scene apple.ma, you can create a similar
scene with your own objects.)
Window > Settings/Preferences > Preferences.
the Time Slider category and make
sure the Playback Speed option is set
to Real-time (24 fps) so your
animation will playback at the default rate of 24 frames per second.
- Close the Preferences window.
You won’t use the animated
camera until later in the lesson. In the next steps, you color the
apple and the planes by creating shading materials.
