To ensure the lesson
works as described, do these steps before beginning:
File > New Scene.
- If you have not already done so, copy
the Getting Started folder from its installation location to your
projects directory. Then, set the Getting Started directory as your
Maya project. For more information, see
Copying and setting the Maya project.
- As you work through these lessons, remember
to save your work frequently and increment the name of the file
every so often (filename1, filename2, and so on).
In this way you’ll have
earlier versions of your work to return to should the need arise.
- Set the current project folder to the
File Referencing tutorial folder by selecting File > Project
> Set. Then navigate to the Getting Started folder, select the
File Referencing folder and click OK.
