I like to live on the edge when it comes to new versions of Maya, but rarely does it cause a major issue for me. A wise man once said ‘the moment you stop respecting something is when it bites you in the ass’. Well consider me bitten.
Anytime a rig I created with 2015 is loaded in 2014 it is irreparably broken. Spewing tons of errors like this one:
// Error: file: C:/Users/chris.evans/Desktop/test.ma line 210: The orientConstraint ‘nurbsSphere1_orientConstraint1’ has no ‘w0’ attribute. //
Diffing two constrained spheres, I noticed that there’s a new flag called ‘DCB’ or Disconnect Behavior. Batch delete that and it seems that 2015 rigs can work in 2014.
But as usual, be a better person than me and just don’t open a file with a version of Maya your animators aren’t on. 😀
