I am trying to export some of my models in Maya 2011, but I have figured out I can’t at this point because I have the 64 bit version of Maya. I really don’t want to install the 32 bit version unless I absolutely have to. Are there any workarounds that can get me passed this problem? I have done a lot of research online but can’t seem to find a solution. Keep in mind that I am a 3D artist, not a programmer, so I’ll need some help if I have to do any compiling.
If you want to export Maya to Panda, you need both Maya and Panda to agree on the executable type.
So, either you need to install a 32-bit Maya, or you need to install a 64-bit Panda. Both are possible, but since we don’t offer a 64-bit Panda out-of-the-box right now, installing a 64-bit Panda is really really hard for a non-programmer.
I recommend just installing 32-bit Maya. It’s easy to do, and it lives painlessly alongside your 64-bit Maya. All it costs is disk space.
Thanks for your help. I was not sure if I would be able to have both the 64 bit and 32 bit version installed at the same time, but if that is possible I will just do that and make it easy.
