Slow export of .pod file from Maya

Hi there, wanted to inquire about whether there is anyway to speed up the export of .pod files from Maya?

I’m currently using Maya 2018, and I am exporting a skinned low-poly model with about 500 frames of animation. However it takes upwards of about 20 minutes to export the file, is there a particular setting or something that I am missing that could increase the speed of exporting?


Exporting 500 frames with low poly data should be really quick. Make sure you are exporting as “Indexed Triangle list” and that the “Optimisations settings” tick-box is disabled. Also make sure that you are not exporting textures. If the performance is still poor, have a look at the output screen to see in which stage it gets stuck.
