View Full Version : prevent from saving a scene

05 May 2007, 08:54 AM
is there any way to prevent from saving (ctrl+s) a scene
like if it was a _new_ scene

i have some scripts that destroy scene to export them, and i dont want to lose the orginal file unintontienaly. i need to save them into a new file

i don't like the idea to hack the way maya save file. maybe there is a smarter way?

replace the save menu item, change the hotkey assignment for Ctrl+S to your own version.

`file -rename ("");`

do that before any saving and you won't risk overwriting/destroying the original file. handy for mass exportation.
