So, Maya

So, I try to import at sound into Maya and I get the error “cannot find file” and I think, “that’s weird. I can and I just told you where it is…”

So I look around a bit on the Internets and find nothing that solves my immediate problem. The closest is someone who solved his problem by changing the format of the file. Possibly because I have used computers for so long my first reaction to this seemingly useless piece of information was “hey, maybe that’s why Maya is telling my that it cannot find the file”.

So I poked around a bit and just look and lo and behold and see what we have here, the file suddenly works.

So therefore: thank you Maya. Thank you for that very helpful error message you gave me. I don’t know what I would have done without it.

One thought on “So, Maya

  1. I got the same thing. Turns out that what Maya really means is “I don’t understand anything else than 44kHz 16bit files”. And yes.. it’s incredibly stupid that it doesn’t say so!
