Ever needed to convert a Maya file between versions but the file is too large to open it in your text editor or you wouldn't even know what to edit? Then this tool might be something for you ...

Features:
  • can convert Maya files between any recent versions (2008-2013)
  • can convert ASCII and Binary files (Binaries will be opened and saved as temprary ASCII file before conversion)
  • can batch convert multiple files
  • overwrite protection (cannot accidentally overwrite existing files. prefix, suffix and/or different output folder must be specified)
  • double clicking a file in the list opens its file location in Windows Explorer

Install:
  • extract rs_mvc_v001.pyc and the rs_mvc_ui folder to your Maya script directory 
  • run these python commands in Maya: 
import rs_mvc_v001 as rs_mvc
rs_mvc.RS_convertMAfiles_UI()

Usage:
  • set input folder
  • pick file(s) from list (will list MB files only when "Auto convert binary to ASCII files" is checked)
  • set output folder and/or choose prefix/suffix options and Maya version
  • press convert button

Limitations:
  • output will always be a Maya ASCII file
  • works in Maya 2012 and higher only (because of QtUI)
  • Limitation for Maya Binary files: Maya Version needs to be >= input file version
