Maya Help

I have spent the last 2 hours trying to figure this out and I'm sure its so very simple but, on the tutorial of the texturing of the x ray and the water droplets  I'm having some problem in the hyper shader.  The part I'm stuck on is where there are several 'Ramp' which need to be connected to one of the 'place texture' that comes with the ramp when you select it. In the video he seems to hover his mouse over the place texture and then to the ramps which connect the two with a yollow line. How is this done? what is it that i have to press in order to do this as i have tried almost every but tern on my lap top with no luck.

This is what it looks like if my wording is confusing.



  1. When you hover your mouse over the place texture node hold down your middle mouse button then drag to the ramp. Hope that helps.

  2. Of course you will need a mouse with a middle button.

  3. Oh if you don't have a mouse with a middle button google 'middle mouse button emulation'. I saw a couple of programs that purport to making a keyboard emulate a mouse. How good they work though, is anyone's guess :S
