Quick Trick: Moving an object in space
Something I find extremely helpful in Maya:
You know the yellow box in the middle of the move tool that lets you drag an object in your viewport? Did you know you can hold down control and click one of the handles to change it to only move perpendicular to that handle?
The practical uses are many, but I included an example from a shot I'm working on now. I control+clicked the y-axis (green) handle so I could drag the foot along the ground.
