How To Find Your Crashed Maya Scene File

Autodesk Maya may be the leading 3D animation software package but it can also be a tricky beast, with a nasty tendency to crash when you least expect it, usually just before the client comes in to check your work.

But fear not, even when Maya crashes, all is not lost. It is (sometimes) possible to find your scene file, even when Maya goes down. Below is a short video put together by Escape Studios VFX undergraduate student Jack Wright, which explains how to hunt down and (hopefully) find your recovered scene file.

Many thanks to Jack for putting the video together. Learning animation isn't just about mastering timing, spcacing and performance. It's also about learning to troubleshoot the many technical challenges that come our way.
