Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Sending scenes to other Autodesk applications, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…Autodesk has provided a cool feature between its various applications in…which we can actually send files back and forth between programs.…For example, you might want to leverage the power of Mudbox in your Maya workflow.…And we can do that very easily.…There are a couple of considerations you need to take into account.…Let's just run through the process very quickly, so…that we can understand what's necessary to correctly send…a scene to Mudbox, and back into Maya without actually even saving the file.…
Okay, I'm going to create just a simple cube.…Create>Polygon Primitives>Cube. And drag that out.…Click and drag to set the height.…I want to go over into its shape node, inputs poly cube one, and then…just set the width, height, depth and all the sub division values to five.…So just drag…my mouse across all those set that to five and I'll…just zero out the position X, Y, and Z value at zero.…Down here under create UV's, I want to…choose normalize collectively and preserve aspect ratio.…
That's going to force all the UV's into the zero to one space.…
