View Full Version : Converting Maya camera animation too max
08 August 2004, 06:18 PM
I really need help with this, im wondering if theres anyway I could export or convert maya's camera animation or camera with animation too 3dmax. I need to do this becuase im more confortable doing camera tracking with Maya rather than max(infact ive never gotten it to work in max) What I essential want to do is track live action footage in maya and take the camera and export it to max. Any help would be gratelly appreciated.

I know a good animator had designed a script package for animation task between max and maya. To enhance his workflow. Search for a post on CGtalk or on Highend3d.com or even google at it.

If max can import .chan files.....then you definately need this mel script: Chandump by Daniel Kramer.
I use this all the time for getting maya camera info to houdini.
