MAYA: Multiple Textures on 1 mesh

Postby Pepper Bohemian » March 18th, 2012, 11:17:51

Hi can someone please help me?

In Maya I can not get the multiple material/textures to work for me once loaded into SL. I read this on the forums for blender but no step by step instructions for Maya. I already combined my mesh object into 1 with different materials and uv map for the different faces. It works for me inside of Maya but when I upload to SL it textures the entire object and won't let me apply different textures. What am i doing wrong?

please help

It does not work if your exporting from Maya 2012, you have to export it as an FBX file using the 2011 profile then use the Autodesk FBX converter(free download) to export that as a DAE file.

tyvm jason. Im using maya 2011 and export as FBX then used the converter to change to .dae
When I export should I be shift selecting the content in my hypershade window along with the model?

I don't know what I am doing wrong
