Yellow and Purple Dots
on Mar 2, 2006 at 4:12:03 am

Hello. In Maya, I am having some trouble. I am making a polygon primitive cone, and I can get the purple dots to show up. But, I know I can manipulate my objects better with the yellow dots, as I have seen in a Maya tutorial several times before. I want to get the yellow dots to show up, but I have no clue how to go about doing it. Below is a thread which I made with pics which may better explain it:

BTW, I know how to manipulate the purple dots. I just know there's a way to get the yellow dots to show up. Please help if you can, thanks in advance !!

The yellow and purple dots are the same thing: CVs, which stands for 'Control Vertices'. Be default, unselected CVs are purple, while selected CVs are yellow. Choose your 'select' tool and draw a box around the CVs you want to manipulate. They will turn yellow, and then you can manipulate them as normal.

How do I bring up the window with File and Solvers and all that stuff. Also, I forget how to briing up the object manipulators. Ya know, like the one where u can spin the object and move it up and down.

hitting the w key selects the move key, press that and then select the dots and you should see the translation handles.

The F2-F5 keys cycle through different menus. If you have hidden the menus from view in the window, you can press and hold the spacebar to bring up the Hotbox, which should display them.
