A quick way to make an image out of your scene in Maya is to take screenshots using Media Recorder. To use media recorder just follow the steps bellow. At the bottom of the page is a large screen shot of the media recorder window for you to use as a reference. There are also some addition IRIX hotkeys listed below to help you arrange the windows on your screen.

The reader should be aware that in general 'XV' is usually a far better way to take screenshots, but unfortunately 'XV' will not work well with Maya. For more information on 'XV' please see Taking Screenshots with XV.
