Have a Maya Shelf Button Do 3 Different Things


Malcolm Andrieshyn Shows How to Create a Multi-Function Maya Shelf Button

No doubt that Maya Shelf buttons are a great way to customize your workflow. It’s pretty quick and easy to throw tools, menu items, and code snippets up there to keep them all at hand. There is one feature of the Maya Shelf button that tends to get overlooked. A single button can have more than one function.

Reminding us of how this works is Lead Environment Artist for The Coalition, Malcolm Andrieshyn who demonstrates the simple technique. With it, you can easily have one shelf button that can run three or more commands in Maya.
