I’ve been learning blender for a long time and now i have a class at the University of Utah that requires blender and i don’t want to learn a bunch of different shortcuts. Anyone know of a file where all of the blender defaults have been applied in maya, or some other way for me to get a blender like environment in maya without manually going through and changing all of the hotkeys myself? Thanks in advance
When you first launch Blender on the splash screen there is an option labeled Interaction: with a dropdown next to it. Change that to Maya. There is a context sensitive menu and another keymapping here as well.
Im so dumb, i see now why i got few replies, what i meant to say was, ive been learning about blender for a long time and have it down, but now the university wants me to learn maya. I need to have the blender short cuts and hotkeys in maya, not the maya ones in blender. Sorry for the brain fart
Ah, I have no clue about that. I think the interactive paradigms of Maya are probably too different to really do Blender’s keymap.
You should probably ask a question like this in a Maya related forum, not a Blender related one. While it is possibly to change many of Maya’s hotkeys, I doubt you will find a script of complied hotkeys like this. It’s a daunting task to map that many hotkeys. Many functions in Blender don’t have an equivalent in Maya (and vice versa), and Maya’s hotkeys are generally global hotkeys, not context-sensitive hotkeys like Blender’s.
If you want to try to set a few yourself and are looking for how, you can check out the documentation. Honestly though, I would recommend learning the regular hotkeys. I really like blender, it’s a great program that’s very under-appreciated. But most animation industry jobs expect you to know the standard hotkeys/interface of a major package like XSI, Maya, Max, or Houdini. And most of those share the same basic hotkeys. Hotkeys that are usually different than Blender’s.
I know this is a late reply but I hope my answer can still help any others out there looking for a Blender to Maya hotkey modification. Check the following link on the Maya documentation page to begin assigning your own Blender style hotkeys.
