Switching the FBX UI

The Maya FBX Plug-in is available to you in two ways: the OS Native UI, which shows the plug-in in a stand alone Importer or Exporter window, or the Maya Default, which shows the plug-in as options within the Maya Import or Export dialog boxes.

Two versions of the FBX UI A. Maya Default B. OS native

Changing the UI

To switch between the OS Native “classic”-look UI and the Maya Default UI, select Window > Settings/Preferences > Preferences. In the Preferences dialog box, locate Files/Projects and scroll down to the File Dialog options.

You can also create your own presets. See Creating a custom preset.

Hiding the UI

You can hide the plug-in when it is in the Maya Default setting if you drag the center splitter bar to the right. This collapses the FBX Plug-in options.
