I too had similar difficulties out of maya. I found that there is a trial and error effort that you need to go through to find the best configuration to export via fbx. If the animations are simple trans, rot, scale, all should work. If you are animating using deformation, expression, dynamics, maybe not. I went thought the time to bake in the vertex animations and they still did not work. I was setting up a tire side wall flex and just can get it to be recognize in KS3.
Sure I can get the flex to look god for 1 frame, but as soon as the tire rotates the smile turns to a frown. Is there a way that KS3 will see vertex keyframes?

We will have to look into this, but I doubt it.
