where in the process do you get stuck?

Not sure what you mean but if you want to export camera information from Maya to AE make sure your camera is called "camera", Locators are called "NULL" and that there is nothing else in the scene. All keyframes must be baked and delete all types of keyframes that contain no animation, save as MA file, then inport in AE and it should work. If its a MA file coming from Syntheyes just import in AE and done.
Scene scales can sometimes be a bit out of control so if everyhting apears huge in your camera view in AE, scale the Nulls or 3D layers down (sometimes to less than 1%).
