I hope autodesk developers do read these notes.
Using a dark UI in the new version of Maya should have been a matter of preference rather than a must have feature!!
After SO many years of using Maya in light color, autodesk developers should have inlcuded s simple slider (i.e. like the one that exists in After Effects prefs) to let users decide wether they want that change and go dark OR stay back with their used to light color habbit!! (after all it was wavefront/alias/autodesk that did provide it in the first place)
Leaving those light color icons in several places STRAINS the eyes more than before!!
The contrast is HUGE to stand it over long houres!!
(Check on your own at http://area.autodesk.com/img/products/maya/enhanced_ui.png for example)
Even autodesk left them in there !? How about user icons ?
It would take enormous hours for one JUST to update all his icons, for all those mel scripts that is using!!
A SIMPLE SELECTION box would get the job done!
The community already commented on this, and in fact someone DID find a solution to let users decide
Some say that even the above doesn’t solve the problem!
Such a feature SHOULD have been a default feature!!
Using a new UI like this and saying that is more flexible to the users right at when is simpe
NOT, is something that should have been taken into account more carefully!
Everything customizable BUT the colors ? WHY ?
Autodesk, please fix this GAP/BUG
