Everything You Wanted to Know About Selection Constraints

Jan Jinda covers using selection constraints in Maya, which can be tricky to understand.

On the heels of his last tutorial covering selection tips and tricks in Maya, Jan Jinda covers a much broader subject: Using Maya’s Selection Constraints. Similar to using selection filters in Maya, which is a simple concept to grasp, this selecting feature is a little more tricky. That doesn’t mean that this method for selecting isn’t super useful for a lot of selection tasks.

On using constraints, Jinda says ” they are very useful for model cleanups or polycount reductions.” “n this video I’ll teach you how to use them for various selection patterns,” Jinda continues. In case you missed it, in his previous tutorial Jan Jinda covered a ton of tips and tricks for working with selections in Autodesk Maya.
