How do I Replace a Reference?

Whether you are updating a rig to a newer version, replacing a broken rig with a working copy, or switching out a default rig to a customized version, replacing references is a great way to do this.

Replacing a Reference

To replace a reference in Maya, first go to File - Reference Editor in Maya.


Next, in the Reference Editor, select the reference you want to replace


Right-click on the selected reference and go to Reference - Replace Reference


Finally browse for the file you wish to replace your reference with and hit Reference


Your reference should now be updated and the file path in the Unresolved name should be pointing to the new file path.
