Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing and exporting props to Unity, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In Unity, bringing things in is easy. All we need to is FBX out a file--…exporting from Maya as an FBX--and then into Unity's Assets folder.…I've already done that with the gas station, and here's my export of the gas pumps, 02_15_export.…Because I've already used this in a previous scene, it's already set correctly.…Colliders are generated and the scale factor is at 1.…We can mix between scenes in this way. I've actually got this set up in the…02_15 scene I used to test.…I'll take this and drag it across into my hierarchy.…
The reason to do this is so that things come in where you intended them.…There's my gas pump, and it's in the middle of the building at 00.…Now I'll pull it out, and click on the red X axis.…The gas pump is floating off the ground. I can either place it on an island or…even lean it up against the building.…I'll rotate it by pressing E and grabbing the Y axis and rotating over.…I'll go into the Rotation and put in -90, that way it aligns up with the island.…I'll press W to Move and V to Snap.…
