Curves from Maya?

Recommended Posts

hi there.

Trying to fix somebody else´s pipeline here :)

Does anybody know if it´s possible to export curves from Maya, and how? The problem is that I have these hair guides created in Maya, but apparently the stupid Autodesk app doesn´t understand curves made of polygons(!!??)

so the usual exporting methods won´t work here. I was wondering how to export them. Any ideas?

you can export .iges file format from maya which houdini supports.

Don't know if it works but now houdini and maya support alembic.

Or - a bit more complex - you can try the maya to mantra plugin: openMaya, but thats maybe a bit too extreme for your needs. The advantage is that you automatically get .geo or .bgeo files from your maya objects.
