Will Maya 5 read files created in Maya 6?


Will Maya 5 read files created in Maya 6?




i think the method for opening maya files in a previous version is:

save as maya ascii

open in notepad

change all references of Maya 6 to Maya 5.

save as maya ascii


that could be true, but make sure everything in the file is compatible with the previous software, eg if you use new functionalities from maya 6, they won’t show up in maya 5


eugh. there is no better way?

I am just creating a model at this point. no animation. are there good ways of bringing models in that may work well?


This Tools have worked for my best , got no problems with conversion (but the point about Maya 6 only features is right)

btw, they work either with *.mb AND *.ma



Hope that helps you
