3ds Max to FBX to Maya Lag
« on: July 10, 2018, 03:13:47 AM »
Hi,
I am not familiar with 3ds Max at all, so I exported everything to more familiar Maya trough fbx.
I am experiencing huge lag, especially with some tools as snapping, changing pivot, uv is not usable at all 2 - window lags extremely, scene loads very slow, part by part which I never experienced before.
I have created bigger maps, with 10 million polygons, which did not lag like that.

I was narrowing down the problem, tried to replicate the same amount of polygons in an empty scene, disconnect textures, materials, combining meshes, deleting various histories etc. However, it still lags.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

PC is i7 9nth gen 12 threads, 16gb ram, 1080 ti, ssd...
Maya 2018.3

Thank you

Hi,

I'm not clear on the question. You mentioned exporting something to Maya. Is the lag inside Max or Maya? If inside Max, then I'd need more info. If inside Maya, I have no advice as I do not use Maya.

Lag is inside Maya. For example if I take a wall model (simple 4 edged) and open UV editor, UV editor would lag so much that moving it's window is problematic. It appears as if it is constantly looping trough some code. We tried on two different machines and two different Maya 2018 releases.

You'll likely need to ask this on a forum dedicated to Maya. I can only answer Max and Wall Worm related questions.

I understand. Although I think it is related more to Wall Worm exporting process, and workflow leading to Maya than actual Maya.
I am working with Maya 7 years, never had such issue. Thank you for reply though.

Maybe someone with Maya experience had similar problems?

I am confused about how WW fits into this? You will need to spell out the entire process, beginning to end, on how the assets are getting into Max (what format they come from) and the process you are using to export to FBX to send to Maya.

In those functions that WW uses an FBX, it's all just standard FBX calls. You should provide more information.
