Problems creating primitives
on Apr 23, 2011 at 10:55:16 am

Hi there.

I'm learning Maya bit by bit and really enjoying it. I'm following a couple if tutorials to understand the tool set and get myself accustomed to the interface (from being a 3ds max user for many years) and one thing is bugging me. When the guy in the video clicks on a sphere or cylinder or whatever it creates it at the origin of the viewport with the standard size and subdivisions etc. However when I click on the shape I have to manually draw it in the viewport. Am I doing something wrong, clicking the wrong button? Any help gratefully received.

Thanks

Hi,
There is an option in the create menu (both polygons and nurbs) at the bottom, called "interactive creation". Uncheck the box. That's it.

Hope it helps.

That's perfect - worked a treat.
