Maya FAQ:

Alienware Creative Professional Workstations - Uniquely Enhanced Workstations for Excellence in Video, Audio, and Content Creation
This is an attempt to get rid of redundant questions, on the listserver and otherwise.
I'll try to put most of the answers on here, each time I get across a frequent one.
But honestly most of the answers are in the manuals, and pretty easy to find.

ok the first one is something that seems to be troubleing a lot of people.

  1. Using melscripts.
  2. Setting up an Inverse foot
  3. Fixing jagged edges when compositing
  4. Missing icons/default tool for Maya.iff files on IRIX
  5. Renumbering image sequences
  6. Reflecting/Refracting an ImagePlane
  7. Alpha channel for transparency in shaders:
  8. Creating 'fake' caustics
  9. Creating 'floppy-skin' for muscles and bat/dragon wings, etc.
  10. Dynamic/animated linking, through constraints
  11. Creating a simple flocking system with particles and fields
  12. The NVIDIA+Maya slowdown problems
More faq's will surely follow.
