If you are using Maya 2016 or newer you must utilize the alternative workflow outlined below. Full App integration only works with Maya 2015.
Standalone AMP Content Navigator
To properly reference a file into your shot using the Standalone AMP Content Navigator, follow the steps below:
- Open your work file by right-clicking on it in AMP and choose “check out" then “open into maya” .
- With your work file open go back into AMP, find the file you wish to use from the AMP Assets, get the latest shot ready file, then right-click on an empty space in the Asset folder and hit "Explore here".
- This will open a window to the location of the file on your system. Memorize or copy the path to the file then go to Maya, hit "File - Create Reference", and browse to the location of the file on your system.
- Once you have found the file, select it and hit "Reference"
Important: The "Reference in Maya" option is not available in the Standalone AMP Content Navigator.
