Hi there,

EDIT: I figured it out, so, you don't have to answer here, but if you're interested to know, read my second post. Thanks anyways for your attention ;)

I've been recently doing some conversion stuff between Max and Maya and I bumped into a problem I can't seem to solve.

I need to translate (meaning convert) a Max's transform matrix into Maya's. The problem isn't in the matrix itself, I understand that and I'm able to communicate matrices between Max and Maya, the problem is the "Y UP" axis in Maya (or rather the "Z UP" axis in Max). What is the process I need to take in order to "rotate" the world coord sys along the positive X axis before exporting the matrix so that Maya understands it?

Or is it something even more complex than this?

First thing I tried was inverting the matrix from Max and loading it in Maya. It worked, the object was oriented the same in space, however, the X and Z axises were of opposite values (i.e.: not 90deg but -90deg). Is this the way? Or am I completely off the track here?

Thanks a lot in advance, cheers,
