Imported rigged character can't be moved
Hey guys, I've recently rigged my first character in Maya 2013. I've skin has been binded but when I import it into another scene and I select it, the move axis are useless and turn grey grey. The rig can move around and effect the character but the mesh as a whole cant be moved.
I'm going for a low-poly geometric look (hence the look)

Any help would be awesome, thanks guys!

try right clicking on the translate attribute and see if you can unlock them. Not sure if this will work, but it looks like they are locked.
