Open the scene for the lesson

In this lesson, you’ll load a scene that contains a human character. During the lesson, you’ll create and animate a skeleton for the character.

To open the scene

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

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


    The character displayed in the scene, Jackie, is a template, so you cannot unintentionally select it during the lesson. Jackie was modeled in the Da Vinci pose, the position that’s easiest for creating a skeleton.
