Importing models from another maya project


I created a scene in Maya in which I created my enviroment (flour, walls etc). In another scene I designed my character and I hooked up it's rig. Now I am looking for a way to export my character from one scene and import him in to another one.

I did a google search and all I could find was exporting for blender, exporting for unity and such.

Is there an easy way to do this without losing any information?

Accepted Answer

File → Import will load other scenes into current scene. File → Export allows you to conditionally export things from scenes.

PS: Yes its as obvious as that. But depends on your rig whether it will work (it usually does that's what the namespace is for). Maya does not enforce sanity.
