Each year the animation capstone makes available a suite of marking menus, shelves, and Maya workspace settings to assist with both individual class projects and eventually production work. To install this production workspace to your login profile simply go to the Windows start menu and paste the following path into "Search files and programs", and hit enter:
A window will pop up indicating that the capstone shelves have been installed. Note that if your profile does not save you will have to repeat this each time you log in.
Now when you load Maya in the lab a series of shelves containing tools used by the animation capstone will automatically update.
