Mayatools.readthedocs.org binary files


#1

I’m doing some research on parsing maya binary files off disk without needing to actually load them in Maya, and a I came across this:

http://mayatools.readthedocs.org/en/latest/binary.html

Anybody have any experience with this code? Things to watch out for ? Does it work as advertised?

Did anything come out of this? Did you find a better solution?

I tried it and it worked… until maya 2016. It does not look like it’s actively maintained. I’ve basically just banned MB files, they are more trouble than they are worth
