Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting a pipeline cache representation, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…To conclude our course in Maya tips and tricks,…we will look at pipeline cache and assembly definition.…These are two techniques that go hand in hand…to give you vastly improved performance in heavy scenes.…I do want to mention that the assembly…definition workflow is not compatible with file referencing,…so you have to choose either the file…referencing workflow or the assembly definition workflow, and…they do have similarities. They both allow you to swap out assets.…
However, assembly definition also gives you the…benefit of vastly improved performance in heavy scenes.…To begin with, we need to look at how to create a pipeline cache representation.…A pipeline cache representation uses a format called alembic,…which is basically a very simplified version of your geometry.…It's not simplified in terms of the number of…polygons, but simply as how that data is stored.…And it's just much faster in the viewports.…
Lets check our frame rate right now. I've got this cityscape here.…And I can go into the display menu and choose Heads Up Display > Frame Rate.…
