Is this an update which allows Physx compatibility with Maya LT?

I noticed on Nvidia’s site, on the Gameworks download center, Hairworks as of version 1.1.1 (and I believe also Apex) now lists a download for Maya LT 2016, the cheaper, slightly stripped down, indie version of Maya.

Previously it didn’t have compatibility as far as I know, you needed full-blown Maya to use Phys-x effects with the UE4. Can anyone confirm if it’s really compatible now, or is this too good to be true?

Nope, it’s a new feature. In fact if you’ll allow me a bit of chest-thumping, I was the one who posted the request on the Maya LT wish list forum :slight_smile:

You have to install the latest update patch to Maya LT, after that, the Apex plugin is “whitelisted” so it can be installed.

wow nice! does anyone care to share some experience? can I go with tutorials for Maya + Apex?

Wooo! Thanks, I was hoping for this. Time to license Maya LT. :smiley:
