Working with assets

When you create an asset, Maya arranges the nodes in a number of ways:

You can expand an asset node to display its contents (see Parts of an asset).

Types of Assets

In Maya there are two types of assets, and you can interact with each one in different ways.

In both cases, you add and modify attributes and make attribute connections to asset nodes (and the nodes placed within them) just like you would other nodes in Maya.

For more information on connections, see Connect input and output attributes.
