interface and covers soft selection and other modeling tools.
George then delves into more complex new features, including
the Asset Manager for organizing objects and nodes within a
scene; animation layering to blend, merge, group, reorder,
override, and add to preceding layers; Maya Muscle, for creating
lifelike skin motion; and nParticles, a new particle system.
