Title: Import Problem from Maya 2014
Post by: hellrage on December 16, 2014, 03:50:47 pm
Hi guys,
I'm having problem importing mesh from Maya to Keyshot as .ma file.
It's seems some of the polygon faces is partially missing.

The polygon should look intact like this inside Maya.

But keyshot only show partially like this:

I checked all the face normal + UV Map, everything seems fine. I don't understand.


Could somebody please help me?

Thank you.

This may happen because you have enabled "Smooth Mesh Preview". Which is a preview option that interfere with the import.

Could you try this: go to the "polySurfaceShape" tab, then open the "Smooth Mesh" drop down and deselect the "Smooth Mesh Preview" checkbox. Now save the file and reimport in KeyShot.
