This makes accessing menu commands easier, especially when you need to use the same command repeatedly. Let’s say, for example, that you need to create multiple polygonal spheres. You can tear off the Create ➔ Polygonal Primitives menu and place it at the edge of your screen. You can then click the Sphere command as many times as you need without opening the dual-layered menu every time. To tear off a menu, click the double line at the top of the menu, and drag the menu where you want it. Click here and drag to tear off a menu.

Sir Isaac Newton set forth these three laws of motion, summarized here: • An object in motion will remain in motion and an object at rest will remain at rest unless an external force acts upon the object. This is called inertia, and its understanding is critical to good animation. You’ll find more on this in Chapters 8 and 9. • The more massive an object is, the more force is needed to accelerate or decelerate its motion. This law deals with an object’s momentum. • Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Manipulating how light is created and reflected is what you’re doing with CG. Without light we would not see anything, so it makes sense that simulating it is the most influential step in CG. As you’ll learn in Chapter 10, virtual lights in Maya are similar to lights used in the real world, from single points of light such as a bulb to directed beams such as spot lights. Rendering At this stage, your computer takes your scene and does all the computations to create raster images for your movie.
