First post - apologies as I’ve trawled through the Forums already looking for answers to this question…but none have helped so I’m trying anew.
I’m trying to export Locators as Sockets from Maya LT into UE 4.9.2.
I’m naming the Locator “SOCKET_TEST01”. The Locator is parented to a SINGLE mesh and exported using FBX 2014/2015 from Maya. Easy enough eh?
When viewed in UE4 though…the Socket is visible…but its location is wayyy off where it should be.
It’s so odd. When double-checking the Translation and Rotation figures I can see there is a negative value placed on the Y Translation and Y Rotation. But even changing that manually to reflect the Maya scene doesn’t put the Locator/SOCKET where it should be!
I’ve tried fiddling with the FBX plugin settings. Changing UP from Y to Z, etc…nothing works. No matter what I do the locator/SOCKET never ends up in the right place or the correct orientation.
We’re testing with Blender and apparently no problems there. I assume that means it’s all Maya LT’s fault? I wish I had a copy of normal Maya to test it against but I’ve already used up that free trial…
If there are any Maya users out there who could help it would be most appreciated.
thanks and all best
