Post export from version 4.0 to 3.5 ?


does anybody know, how I can export a maya file from version 4.0, so that I can read it in version 3.5 ? Or can I save it as maya 3.5 in 4.0 ?

I don't believe it is possible except to export as an .obj, but you'd lose any texture and animation info

I think it can be done by saving as a *.ma file, and hope that you didnt use any version 4.0 features. But you will get an error message when you import it in to 3.5, just ignore that and re-save.
