Autodesk Maya File references between Linux and Windows

Issue : I have created a Scene file in windows and reference characters and assets from Z:/ Drive (production Drive).

these Maya Scene files i am not able to open in Linux Workstations (Because linux doesn’t have Z:/ Drive )

For Example:

Z:/ is root of production drive in Windows

(Z:/Assets/Characters/Scooby/ , Z:/Production/Scenes/Seq05/Sh001/FX/ , Z:/Assets/Textures/Hdri/ )

/project is root of Production drive in Linux

Same Folder structure in Linux After Mount by SAMBA window share looks like that :-

(/project/assets/Characters/Scooby , /project/Production/Scenes/Seq05/Sh001/FX/ , /project/Assets/Textures/Hdri/ )

to resolve the issue of missing path of Reference maya files

Add these two line in userSetup.mel (contained in Maya Scripts folder)

dirmap -en true;

dirmap -m “Z:/” “/project”;

restart maya and Enjoy 🙂
