View Full Version : Blend Shapes slow down the opening and saving of scene file

11 November 2008, 07:33 AM
I've done a few import/export of blend shape meshes and used the taper script from Jason Osipa's "Stop Staring" book to generate left and right shapes. Now the problem comes: it takes about 3 minutes to save the scene once! Even if I delete all the blend shapes and blend shape nodes the problems still persists. Has anyone encountered such problem?

Export selected as a .ma file. If that doesn't work go File > Optimize Scene Size... If that doesn't work I'm stumped! :cool:

stewartjones: Thanks for the reply. I've tried optimizing the scene and exported in both ma and mb formats. Neither of these worked for me. :(

I saved it as .ma and opened it in a text editor. then i found out that there're 30,000 lines of connecting attributes of light linking. After i deleted all these lines of garbage, my scene file works again!
