Maya: Hypershade Basics

Code Canyon

A read a posting in a Maya forum on Facebook the other day, asking what the Hypershader is about?

    How to prevent showing those unneeded SG nodes? I need just a material node like in 3ds max in graph. It's very hard to do something when I have 20 materials and each of them connected to additional 20 SG nodes.
