View Full Version : Maya Help (moving objects between scenes)

09-05-2009, 05:54 PM
I'm creating a scene in maya 2009 and want to have a different scene to model different (large) objects. I want to then take the objects from different scenes and put them together at the end to render the final scene.

Is this possible, and how? I just need to know how to move objects from one scene to another.


P.S. If I must use layers, can someone tell me how to do layer hierarchies?

Select what you want to move and go file>Export Selection then open up other scene and import the file.

you can also open both scenes and just do copy and paste. shaders and layers will be copied aswell and everything will have "pasted_" in front of the name.
