Hi all, I'm looking for a plugin called Mayalink.

It's supposed to allow use of maya locators,camera and lights in AE.

Maya's docs send users to a dead link on Adobe's website.

Does ANYone know where it's supposed to be on this sight?

Thanks.

It looks like Autodesk removed the extension from the Adobe Exchange.

Now, if you can output info from Maya to a format that Cinema 4D can understand (FBX, for example), you can import the resulting file into C4D Lite that comes free with AE and use the Cineware plugin (also part of your AE install) to extract the information into After Effects.

So cameras and locators can be brought into AE from C4D Light?

I've not used the program at all.

I don't have Maya, but try exporting from Maya as an FBX.

Then, in C4D Lite, try importing the FBX file.
