Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

.fbx import issue

hi there,

i have an issue to import .fbx file;

the object is very very big, appears in outliner, but just in perspective view!
i just creat a simple cube in top view, but nothing appears, to figure it out, which problems of scale , i get;
i think .fbx it is enormous big, instead of very small ?
Same issue when importing .obj file.....
i'd like to snap, to maya grid , to create lights or whatever

It sounds like the unit size was different in the program the .fbx file or .obj files were created in, before exporting in the other program set its unit size to cm, and when setting the project up in Maya set unit size also to cm.
It sounds like the model is to real-world scale possibly, most production modeling will be done in cm, so if importing a six-foot character that has been created correctly, it will come in very large.
It would only come in very small if modeled in mm, but some simulations would not behave correctly if modeled at that scale, and programs like Marvelous Designer would also not work correctly when importing into, as they also work to the cm real-scale workflow.
