Features and Cautions:

1. You can easily copy and paste scripts used in Maya into the clipboard.

2. You must pivot your mesh in Maya and then export it to use the object that matches the mesh you import into Unreal.

3. You can specify and copy multiple placed meshes, but you must specify only one type of mesh and run the script to copy them.

Technical Details

Features:

  •  The Python script used in Maya is built-in and can be moved by putting it on the clipboard.
  •  Transform information copied from Maya is also parsed and used in Unreal through the clipboard in json format, so there is no need to set up a separate environment for communication.
