Trouble with bind pose in Maya 2008


#1

This one is along the same lines as the previous post with exporting skinned models, however I am noticing a more specific problem…





Basically, it looks to me like something is wrong with my Frame 0 pose coming out of Maya. I have created a simple 3 joint test rig with a cylinder bound to it.





Then, I animate the middle joint to make the cylinder wiggle a bit.





The strange thing, is that I find that when the data hits the runtime, frame 0 actually has identity matrices for my joints. I would have expected Frame 0 to have the bind pose matrices.





Am I missing something obvious?





Thanks in advance.
