Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting scenes, part of Up and Running with MotionBuilder.
- MotionBuilder is mostly a motion editor.…It's not really a finishing tool,…so typically the workflow is…you import stuff into MotionBuilder,…you massage the motion…and then you send it out to another package…for final rendering and compositing and all of that.…So, with that in mind, Autodesk has provided a lot of tools…to get MotionBuilder data into other packages.…And, one of them is the FBX format.…There's a lot of packages that support FBX,…so you can just save out a MotionBuilder file as an FBX.…
All MotionBuilder data is FBX files…and you can import that…into any number of software packages,…but if you're using Autodesk 3D software,…you get a number of additional options here.…We have 'Send to Maya', 'Send to 3ds Max',…and 'Send to Softimage'.…So, we can take our scenes and actually connect them…between packages and then have a live interaction.…So, let's go ahead and send this as a new scene to Maya.…
So, i'm going to go ahead and do that.…It gives me a little bit of warning.…It says, 'Selection is empty'.…
