Channel box is most used command panel of Maya.It controls all the attributes and channels of all types, such as of an object or its shapes or animation or dynamics etc. channelbox has easy access for user. It is recommended for new users of Maya that they should pay very proper attention to understand the channel box because without using channelbox they will never be able to model or animate something with accurate values.
Suppose you start to model an object directly with your mouse pointer. It may be corrupted due to free style modeling because when we scale, rotate or translate our objects or their components within Maya with simple clicking and dragging we can never model or animate some object with its appropriate values or figures. And when we use the channel box especially for controlling the attributes of the objects or animations we get very accurate results and there is not a single corruption in our model or animation. We even can control the attributes of lights, cameras and much more things from channel box. The second portion of channel box is shape. This is the place from where we control the shapes and behavior of our channels, objects and their components. The third portion of channel box is called layer editor. It’s the best way to display or manage the items of your scene or workspace. Even you can control thousands of object with layer editor any time.
