C3dC Maya 2016 Prefs

Maya: Preferences

In This Class You’ll Access…
The C3dC Hotkeys and Preferences are here to make working in Maya fast and easier. These hotkeys have come out of production environments where 3d artists have had to work fast. Verified by many professionals, (some depts have even forced the whole team to use them) and also by students and freelancers who swear that these make maya easier and faster grab the hotkeys, prefs and shelves here.

2017 and 2018 Preferences are also available, you can grab those for 2017 and 2018

The biggest gift to the community is these hotkeys which alone can dramatically improve the speed of workflows in Maya. Working with marking menus and shelf icons for the most commonly used functions in Maya is like typing emails by using the Maya shelf instead of the using the keyboard. It’s insanity and Maya over the years has become really inefficient. But since Maya is so customisable it’s been easy to fix this as we’ve done here.

The prefs come with numerous tools including Zoo Tools Pro, a comprehensive rigging and animation toolset. This set of tools will be sold in the future but for now can be used for free under a no distribution license.

Mayas preferences control the default setup of Maya when you load it up, in general they’re pretty good however a few key things need to be tweaked to get good results, we’ve done that for you so you don’t have to worry.

We’re not afraid to mod up Maya like you’d do in a professional environment so here’s a bunch of free scripts in the shelf that make work easier. Where we’ve not been able to obtain the rights to redistribute the script the icon will take straight to the script download page with instructions on how to install.
