egg 2 maya 6.5?

Is there anyway of importing back a model into Maya if you only have the egg file?

I think there aren’t many egg2xyz. There are only


But you can write a egg2maya:wink:.


Hmm, Josh wrote an egg2maya program a little while back, I’m surprised it didn’t make it into Panda3D 1.1.0. Well, I guess it will be distributed along with a future release.

In the meantime, you could try to obtain the Panda3D sources from cvs and build it yourself. But be warned that it does not support animations or other advanced features.

Other than that, your best bet is to export from egg into some semi-standard format, such as dxf or x, and then find the appropriate plugin on the net to import that format into Maya. (Note that the DXF format doesn’t represent textures, so X would be the better choice between the two.)


It’s in there. Look in the plugins directory, “mayaeggimport7.mll”.

Ah, I guess the problem is that makepanda doesn’t build an egg2maya standalone binary, just the plugin. Gotcha.
