Jan Jnda shows how to work with Symmetry in Maya.
Some software features are designed to make things easier but that doesn’t always mean that they will make things easier. Sometimes the intent doesn’t really match workflow. For example, Maya’s symmetry mode. Symmetrical editing in Maya allows you to reflect the details of a model from one side to the other. Sure you can do this manually a number of ways, but symmetry is a tool that came forward to help modelers and save some time.
Still, if you are working with symmetry you might have a lot of questions, like which mode should I be using? If you are still unclear as to how to work with this more recent feature in Maya, then check out a new quick tip video from Jan Jinda who tries to provide some detailed answers.
