Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing in another application, part of Up and Running with Plant Factory.
- I'm ready to import that FBX document…into my third party application which is "Maya 2016".…Before I do that I want to make sure…that my project is set correctly.…Go to the "File Menu" and choose "Set Project",…and I want to go into my exercise files…and choose the "Maya Project" folder and click "Set".…Once I've done that then I can open the file itself…that I have prepared.…Go to the "File Menu" and choose "Open Scene"…and I've got "06_04_import_plant.ma".…It's a very simple background.…
Go ahead and click "Open"…and it's just going to take a moment to load that up.…And as I said, it's a very simple scene that's built at…one one-hundredth scale because "Maya" can't really handle…landscapes built at one to one scale.…So there it is and I'm ready now to import my FBX document.…Go back to the "File Menu" and choose "Import"…and once again, in the "Scenes Folder",…I've got "Cypress.fbx" and the maps…are in the "Maps Folder" there.…
Go ahead and click "Import".…It will just take a moment to calculate…the BOT and the deformations.…
