Open the scene for the lesson

In this lesson, you work with a scene we created for your use.

  1. Make sure you’ve done the steps in Preparing for the lessons.
  2. Open the scene file named ShadeOrange.mb.

    This file can be found in the GettingStarted directory that you set as your Maya project:


    This scene contains a sphere modeled to resemble an orange.

    The scene’s perspective view also has two settings turned on—Shading > Smooth Shade All and Shading > Hardware Texturing (Hotkey: 6)—which let you see the shading changes you are about to make.
