Maya (Legacy) Connector

Overview

The NVIDIA Omniverse™ Maya Connector Plug-In offers a robust toolkit for Maya Users to send and live sync their model data to an Omniverse Nucleus. This not only gives Maya users a first class renderer through Omniverse View or Omniverse Create but also the ability to open, edit and sync with any application supporting Omniverse Connect. Now, depending on the use case, Maya users can choose the workflows and pipelines that work best for their needs while maintaining up to date revisions for all downstream consumers of their work.
