  • Autodesk Maya
    • Fields
      • Maya can also render images as fields. Maya generates 2 image files for each time frame of the animation, one per each field.
        • Maya renders a frame at time "x" by rendering one field by "x" and one file at time "x+0.5".
          • By default, Maya renders images as frames.
    • Frames
      • The drawings are called "Frames" because of their position in time that is measured in frames on a strip of film.
        • By default, Maya renders images as frames.
      • A keyframe in animation is a drawing that defines the starting and end points of any smooth transition.
      • Tweening
        • The process of movement between two images is smooth. 
          • The display for tweening in Maya looks outdated but still has advanced controls.
    • The shelf is a toolbar. You can chose the tools/buttons you want to be displayed.
      • Maya gives you the option to create your own buttons when you produce a 'Shelf' in Maya.
        • Maya uses MEL Script to code your own buttons that can be used in Autodesk Maya.

          • The preloader is difficult to find due to certain versions will either come or not come with preloaders
            • The software doesn't come with a preloader so it can use the default SWF.
            • Preloaders
            • There are a lot of controls both simple and complex with Autodesk Maya.
              • There are many controls and shortcuts but the shortcuts have a big impact on the way a tool can be selected easier.
              • The controls are for a more in depth design for your 3D creations.
            • The layers used are all displayed clearly.
              • Being a 3D animation it would be extremely difficult to alter layers but Autodesk Maya makes it easy.
                • Changing  the names, types and frames of layers is easy.
