I mostly use FLT for this, painful though it is, I am not sure why your
textures are missing though?
I tend to use Maya Bonus Tools >organise files prior to export just to
keep everything together.
You will need to remember to freeze transforms on all objects including
group nodes, and also delete all history.
I have compiled a modded Maya 8.5 version of the DIO soft maya
exporter obtained from
It "sort" of works, that is, it functions ok for models that are not
overly complex, as soon as you are exporting models with polygons over
the 30 k mark it falls over.
The code itself could do with a cleanup to say the least and I have not
had the time to pull it apart to try and fix it.
At risk of getting a bollocking, getting content into the osg in
general is unnecessarily difficult IMHO.
