AutoSave Me is a scripted solution that saves your Maya scene after a specified amount of time has elapsed. Built before Maya integrated their own auto save feature but still relevant. Time tested on a large development team over multiple years.
- Elapsed time is checked after selection changes via scriptJob.
- Incremental saves are stored in the same directory as your Maya scene.
- Utilizes Maya’s built-in incremental save and limits which you can enable/disable within Maya or ASM Options.
- Settings are saved between sessions via OptionVars.
Copy autoSaveMe.py to your Maya scripts directory, usually – documents\maya\version\scripts\
Add the following lines of code into your userSetup.py file: (included in download)
import autoSaveMe as asm asm.autoSaveMe()
