Tutorial: Rearranging the interface for lefties I used to work for a company that required that all computers have the mouse to the left of the keyboard. We swapped computers often, and the boss hated having to move the mouse to the other side of the keyboard (and you thought your work environment was weird). The reality is that some people like it on the left and others prefer it on the right, and Max can accommodate both. With the Command Panel on the right side of the interface, the default Max interface obviously favors right-handers, but with the docking panels, you can quickly change it to be friendly to lefties.

The User Reference and MAXScript Reference are comprehensive help systems that work like a Web browser. The Tutorial command loads the tutorials, which offer a chance to gain valuable experience. 11, that includes seven Essential Skills Movies. These simple movies explain the basics of working with Max. The Welcome Screen includes a link to Area, which is the Autodesk community site. After viewing the videos, you can disable the Show this dialog at startup option to prevent the Welcome Screen from appearing next time you start Max.

A Perspective view simulates how our eyes actually work and converges all points to a single location off in the distance. You can see the difference between these two types of views clearly if you look at a long line of objects. For example, if you were to look down a long row of trees lining a road, the trees would eventually merge on the horizon. In Axonometric views, lines stay parallel as they recede into the distance. 1 shows this example with the Axonometric view on the left and the Perspective view on the right.
