I have read a couple of post that stated it is possible for an egg file exported from Maya to retain the lightnode transform information. I cannot get it to save the ligh tnode information when using maya2egg mel script. Here are the 2 post i am refering to:
discourse.panda3d.org/viewtopic … ights+maya
discourse.panda3d.org/viewtopic … aya+lights
If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great, thank you in advance. BTW using Maya 8.5.
- create a Locator object to be the light’s parent and apply transform to that locator instead of the light (light’s transform must be identity), or
- create a Locator object and simply copy the light’s transform to it.
Then, by your script, find that Locator and do whatever you want.
thank you for the fast response. works great.
