I got a high poly mesh car with a size 1.7 GB as a MB file. I need to reduce the size and export a FBX file with a maximum size of 40 MB. I tried the reduce tool and the clean up tool, but couldn't reduce the mesh to less than 1 GB.
Please help! What i the best way to reduce the file size in Maya?
what i do in this case i almost remodel low poly mesh
you can use quad tool in maya and turn on make selected object LIVE magnet tool on top
and then start making low poly version of your car
if you have textures you can make low poly mesh UVs and tranfer color from one high poly to low poly in maya.
this is what i know
