Maya 2018 export Crash XSI

Post by Pedrito » 07 Jun 2018, 16:48

Hi there!
It's some one else having troubles importing things to xsi from maya 2018?

I mean, obj, fbx... all the time I crash xsi when importing even with fbx2010 settings ....

if I import it to maya 2017 and then again to fbx, it works on xsi.. its not all the time, but 90% of the exports...

some ideas? :(

sadly xsi import system is complete crap, and always been.

that said, there might be some issues here at work, first off, if you are using some custom addon to drag and drop in the viewport the fbx or obj, try not to do that.
Fresh open softimage and use the File > import path mode.

If that doesnt work and keep crashing, might be because newer software like max and maya are using a newer fbx format that got updated, softimage is still using an old one since its abandoned.
OBJ is a lottery.
