i dunno what version my teacher has... it's on his computer. I'm doing it just for fun and so far I've learned polygons the HARD way... i still dont' know everything of course but I get by by just tinkering around with the shelf buttons and everything else in the menus. But I find some buttons more used than others and some good menu buttons NOT in the shelf. But I'll take your word for it and tinkering around with the current buttons on there.

Hey man...how the hell did you get a hotkey to get into X-ray mode???...Please let me in on that secret because chasing that down through the menu isnt' fun. (I know how to set custom hotkeys by the way, I just cant get that xray mode one setup)

Thanks

Hey Abominable,..

This is the string I use as a hotkey in Maya 4.5, prolly the same in 4.0 aswell:

// get last panel that recieved focus
string $panel = `getPanel -wf`;
// toggle xray mode
modelEditor -e -xray ( !`modelEditor -q -xray $panel` ) $panel;


Not all of that info is needed but it works

Hi, i've tried downloading the scripts " lightGirl, rockGen." but whenever i install it , i get a syntax error.
After viewing the source it says it's for Maya 3.0 and 4.0

Do you know where i can get Maya 4.5 versions ??

Thanks !!!!!!

Open up the .mel script with wordpad or something and check the spelling of the name of the .mel file compared to what the name of the procedure is called. Ex... lightGirl.mel could have a syntax error when it doesn't match the procedure name in the script...say....lightgirl, all it takes is an upper case when you need a lower case to bugger it up. Maybe i'm just blowing smoke out my arse, but that may be the problem with the script for ya, im not too sure. Take a look anyway. Hope it somewhat helps. Later.

I dont bother with shelf icons, that bar takes up too much space, i'd rather use marking menus

Marking menus are great, but nothing's faster than dropping a mel button on the shelf for later.
