Exporting from maya in LHCS

I'm curently developing a 3d engine in DirectX.
I use Alias Maya to model what I need.
I have wrote a plugin for maya that exports what I model in my format.
The problem I have is that I want to export from maya my models in left handed coordinate system. Is there a way to do this ? or do you know some good tutuorials or infos about this ?

I'd have thought it would simply be a case of flipping one of the axes over? This would normally be the z-axis - so (depending on how you've made your exporter) you should be able to simply multiply all z-coordinates by -1 to convert left->right-hand. The same would obviously work for the opposite scenario...

I hope that helps?

Thumbs up I solve my problem

Thnks for your reply.
I finaly solve the poblem.

If everyone of you intend to do this you have to do this:

1. as paulwconnor sais, you have to change all the z coordinate of vertices to -z;
2. also you have to change the X and Y rotation of meshes' transform to -x, -y

and that it's all.

Thnks, paulconnor for your reply.
