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
- Make sure you’ve done the steps in
Preparing for the lessons.
- 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.
